The Executive



About us


Hedgehoppers Model Flying Club was formed by a small group of experienced modellers in 1995.  The major objectives set by the founder members of Hedgehoppers Model Flying Club were, are and still are:-

• Promotion of the sport to the younger generation

• Promotion of the sport to novices of all ages

• Provision of an appropriate environment for advancement of all

• Building and flying of model aircraft

• Above all to have fun, safely



Hedgehoppers Model Flying Club site is located on the outskirts of the lovely village of Shalford, Essex. We have a excellent flying strip of approximately 2 acres. The grass was grown from seed and is maintained to the highest standards. We believe this is one of the best flying sites in the area. We have full planning permission for our activities issued by Braintree District council. The club has its own off the road car park.



HMFC has a self imposed limit of thirty members, twenty senior and ten junior.  This limit has been endorsed by Braintree District Council as a condition of the Planning Approval for the flying site.

HMFC membership is taken from a broad cross section of the local community and covers an age range of seven to seventy.
