About Barnstormers

Come Fly With Us


Whether you are an experienced pilot or flying for your first time, Barnstormers Model Flying Club has you covered.


Barnstormers was founded in 1972. Since then, the club has grown to what you see today, with the help of the members and the community.


The club caters for many forms of flying, including fixed wing, helicopter, control line, turbine, drone and FPV.




Barnstormers Model Flying Club’s community has grown to over 160 members who are available to assist you in any way possible. If you have a query, contact a

member and they will point you in the right direction. 

Many of our pilots are skilled in the “Scratch Build” area. This means that they build an aircraft out of balsa strips (Some from plans and some from memory). So

come around and ask as many questions as you like.

Under 18 pilots fly free of charge as part of our “YOUTH PROGRAM”.


Over the years the club has been upgraded to include recently tarred


and extended runways and taxiways, dedicated helicopter facilities, braai areas and secure parking. We offer a great experience for pilots and spectators alike.


Ask any of our members for a form or apply online should you like to become part of this ever growing sporting community. 

The main runway is 220m long (Tarred Surface) and 8.9m Wide.


With mowed over-run of 92m (South East end) and 55m (North West end).


Giving a total length of 323m of usable runway. 



Our club is located off the R25 towards Bapsfontein.
