(2018 season will be included as and when details become available)
Make a note in your diary for the following competitions and meetings for Free Flight Scale.
Please see supplimentary Free Flight calendar at bottom of page.
If you have a Free Flight Scale meeting or competition that you want to add to this list please message me with the full details.
In a world of high tech', ready to fly and "inexpensive" radio control models the "simplicity" of Free Flight Scale continues to survive, and draws good spectator numbers, but we could always do with more support so please try your best to get to as many as possible.
