DDMac Fly in

The Dewsbury & District Model Aero Club (DDMAC), is 51 years old this year. The club was formed in September 1966.

They are holding a club open day and informal Fly-In to celebrate this anniversary and would like to extend an invitation to your club members, to join us for the day.

The event will be held on Sunday 17th September 2017, at the DDMAC Flying Field (details below), commencing at 11.00am and concluding around 5.00pm.

The event will be run on a safe but informal basis with some fun flying events for people to try. We are hoping to have our carrier deck landing platform ready for the day. Come along and see if you can land and take off from the carrier deck.

We do have a limit of no models over 7kg, to be flown down at our field. We do not allow turbines and have a noise limit of no models over 82db measured at 7 metres.

Impromptu fly for Howard


This evening a few us went up onto the moor for an impromptu fly and to chat about our time spent with Howard Mansley. To our surprise his family came up and joined us, which made for a really special flying session, even if the flying conditions were not great the company was and it was really nice to meet and talk to them all.

Howard Mansley

It is with much sadness that I have to report to you that Howards Mansley’s condition has deteriorated. To be blunt the latest news is that Howard has only weeks to live in his current condition, he is to undergo some treatment over the next few days but at best this may only give him an extra week or so.

Howard and his family would like to welcome visitors to visit Howard at his bed side on Bexley wing St James to talk about the good times we have had over the years.
