Welcome to Southport Model Aero Club's website. On this site you will find plenty of information about the club such as where and when we fly, what kinds of model aircraft are flown by members, where we meet, what shows we are involved in, how to get in touch and how much it costs to join us.

Southport Model Aero Club (SMAC) consists of a small group of enthusiasts of all age groups, who fly a wide variety of radio-controlled model aircraft (mostly fixed-wing).  These range from Almost Ready To Fly (ARTF/ARF) trainers, to full scale scratch-built models. The atmosphere at the club is friendly and relaxed (but we are serious about safety!).

We have been in existence in our current configuration since 1975 and are permitted to fly on Sefton's (Merseyside) coastline north of Liverpool at Ainsdale.  Flying on the beach is possible all year round, although restrictions apply during winter and on days with very high tides.  However, SMAC's main  flying site is now at Leisure Lakes near Southport.  In addition to outdoor flying, indoor flying sessions take place at Sutton Leisure Centre during the winter.

We are able to offer free training scheme for novices and have registered examiners who can take candidates for their 'A' and 'B' Certificates. We are affiliated to the British Model Flying Association (BMFA No. 233). The BMFA is the governing body for model flying in the United Kingdom.

Enjoy your visit to our website!
