About our Organisation.
White Sheet Radio Flying Club (WSRFC) operates from White Sheet Down, a slope soaring site near the small town of Mere on the A303 in West Wiltshire, England. Members of the club enjoy constructing and flying “Silent Flight” model aircraft, more generally known as gliders. We have a broad range of interest from thermal soaring to flying scale replicas.
All skill levels are accommodated. WSRFC is affiliated to the British Model Flying Association (BMFA). No matter what your interest, as long as it involves flying a glider off a slope we think White Sheet RFC will cater for you.
Maybe you are not a modeller but want to know more about our hobby. Just come along to the slopes and have a chat, we will be more than pleased to talk to you.
We use two slopes on Whitesheet Hill, one South Westerly and one North Westerly through to Easterly. The landing areas are huge with no rocks or bushes in the way!
The area of Whitesheet Down that we use is a National Trust property and adequate insurance is mandatory. The National Trust ask that all visiting flyers contact the Club before flying. We ask that you read the 'Club Rules' before your visit to ensure this site remains available to us.
The White Sheet RFC provides This site as a Service to it’s members, visiting flyers and the general public who may be interested in our sport. We make every effort to provide accurate and up to date information. The committee, members and web site maintainer cannot take any responsibility for errors or omissions of any kind.e>
