Welcome to the official website of the Sussex Radio Flying Club (SRFC)

The club has been in existence for many years and has utilised various sites in Sussex during that time and now has three excellent flying sites  devoted to the various branches of our hobby.

Our main flying site for fixed wing models (power models and electric gliders) is at Coombes, on the top of the South Downs between Worthing and Steyning and we have additional sites at Poling and Ashurst dedicated to helicopters and gliding respectively. The Coombes and Poling sites are able to be used throughout the year and their locations can be found here at SRFC Flying Sites.



From mid-April to mid-September the club runs competitions for power models and for electric self launched gliders and once a month the gliding fraternity try to get together for a day of gliding and if desired a friendly competition.

Our members have always regularly competed in local, National and International Competitions and include the 2018 British National F4C Scale Champion.

Members of the club fly electric powered thermal soarers and gliders off local sites on the South Downs, sites that are not controlled by SRFC.

The club will be running Taster Days in the future at which potential members can come along, meet members of the committee and trainers, with a view to seeing whether the club offers the sort of environment that a potential member might like and also to provide the club with an incite into the skills of potential members and the amount of training that might be necessary. For more information please use the Contact page to contact the club through the membership secretary.
