Hi, welcome to our website.We hope you find it interesting and informative.

Warrix Flying Group.
We are a group of Aircraft enthusiasts who fly fixed wing internal combustion and electric powered model aircraft, from a very good grass strip. We also fly Gliders and Float Planes.
We welcome new members and visitors to come along to our meetings on the third Tuesday of every month, at the Irvine Water Sports Club or to the flying site (May - Aug. inc.), situated just off the A759 between the village of Dundonald and Hillhouse Quarry.
It is now a legal requirement to be registered with the C.A.A., and have an operator I.D. before flying any drone or model aircraft. Drones and model aircraft under 250g are exempt from this rule.
To fly solo on our site you are required to be a member and have passed the minimum of a Scottish Aeromodellers Association “Bronze” certificate, or British Model Flying Association “A” certificate; (see Renew / Join page).
To achieve this standard we hold training evenings each Wednesday during the summer months with two instructors in attendance.
We are bound by South Ayrshire Council, to ensure that any internal combustion engine used on this site is tested to read 82dB, or less at 7 Metres range.
As our flying site is in the zone of Glasgow Prestwick Airport we are obliged to inform Air Traffic Control when any member is going to fly a model in excess of 7kgs, and cancel same when finished flying.
