Dark Peak Model Aircraft Club

Where we fly

We currently have access to two power flying sites, there are a number of members who also fly gliders off local slopes – depending on the weather and wind direction the slope in use is decided on the day.

The primary power flying days are Saturday and Sunday afternoons and Wednesday afternoons at our Hayfield site, and during school holidays we can fly at any time during the week on our Longdendale Community College Site.

Hayfield/Birch Vale site, High Peak

Our new site – still in early days, so facilities will improve over time.  Please refer to the map below to find the car parking area.  This is located through a locked gate, which can be left open during a flying session.

Set your Sat Nav to locate Oven Hill Road in Birch Vale, and travel up Oven Hill Road until you arrive at the first right hand turning.  Take this right turn, and locate the parking area on the right, which is now prepared with MOT Roadstone, and has a wooden storage area. The postcode SK22 4QJ will take you past the entrance to our parking area.

If you are flying on this site for the first time, please contact a member of the committee to confirm the flying envelope and flight-line location.

For reference, the What3Words reference for the carpark is: ///funky.indirect.cherub
