SSA members fly a variety or RC electric powered aircaft including depron and EPP foamie models, fast sport models, biplanes, scale models and electric gliders. We have access to three flying sites in the Sheffield area suitable for electric models. IC models are only permitted at the Shillito Woods flying site due to noise restrictions. Modern brushless motors and LiPo batteries have made it possible to model all types of aircraft and provide almost unlimited power.
Once a member you can be added to the SSA flight notification system which allows members to notify others when they are going flying.
If you are interested in joining the SSA and learning to fly RC aircraft please come along and chat to our members before buying any models or equipment. For more information see our Learning To Fly page or contact us.
