Flying Site Locations

We now have two flying sites following the integration of GPMFC (Golden Plains Model Flying Club) into BRMFC during the second half of 2014.

The primary BRMFC field (as of 1st October 2014) is on Trawalla Estate land (formerly Dynamic Flight Park until the end of April 2016) located at the corner of Nerring-Trawalla (Church) Road and the Western Highway Trawalla, 40kms by road WNW of Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. It caters for all types of fixed wing models. Our previous field which we occupied from mid 2000 was located at Yendon.

The secondary field (formerly GPMFC field) is located within the Burrumbeet Racecourse Remembrance Drive, Burrumbeet Victoria, 18.5kms from the Ballarat CBD. Due to the charter of GPMFC being preserved after its aquisition by BRMFC, it caters for both fixed & rotary wing models.  The close proximity of the caravan park means engine sizes are restricted to 46 two stroke or 60 four stroke engines to keep a lid on noise and the size of models flown.
