Welcome to HEMFC

The Hornsby Electric Model Flying Club was founded in 1996 and is a group of like-minded people who love to build and fly electric model aircraft.  We meet at Fagan Park, Galston, in Sydney's north west.  We do not run competitions as we enjoy the social interaction of meeting and swapping ideas. 

Please feel free to browse our gallery of photos and videos and read our flying guidelines.  If you wish you may contact us.

NEWS...

NO FLYING PERMITTED - The field is closed until 31st July 2021
Due to the latest government restrictions which include stay at home orders for all people in the Greater Sydney area, we regret to advise that the airfield will be closed until 11:59pm on Friday 30th July. No flying or attendance at the field is allowed until after that time.

We have also had to defer our AGM which was scheduled for Sunday 4 July 2021. A revised date will be advised in due course once the restrictions have been lifted. Should the restrictions continue over an extended timeframe beyond 9 July, consideration will be given to holding the AGM via Zoom or Teams (although this is not a preferred option).

NO FLYING PERMITTED during a total fire ban...
CASA AC101-03 states that aircraft powered by LiPos should not be flown during a total fire ban.

AGM...POSTPONED until further notice...
We have also had to defer our AGM which was scheduled for Sunday 4 July 2021. A revised date will be advised in due course once the restrictions have been lifted. Should the restrictions continue over an extended timeframe beyond 9 July, consideration will be given to holding the AGM via Zoom or Teams (although this is not a preferred option).
