Bromley Soaring Club 2

Bromley Soaring Club (BSC) has been South East London and West Kent’s premier club for soaring and silent flight. It was formed by Avicraft around 1980 to promote the building and flying of model aircraft, with the original emphasis on gliding, both slope and thermal soaring. Members of the club now fly a variety of models, thermal, electric and slope soarers, park fly and indoor models. There is also a strong interest in competitive thermal soaring, particularly the Kent Interclub thermal gliding competitions.

The club has now effectively merged with the Bickley Model Flying Club (BMFC) and is essentially a club within a club. You can still become a member of Bromley Soaring Club but this does not provide the right to use Bickley’s flying site. To be able to use this site (except as an occasional guest) you need to become a member of BMFC. All members of BMFC are now considered to be members of Bromley Soaring Club. When flying in Kent Interclub Glider competitions BMFC members join with BSC members and fly as a team under the Bromley Soaring Club banner.

During the summer months, BSC organise ad-hoc flying sessions at a park in Bromley and/or at Bickley’s site near Dartford. During the winter months, flying sessions are arranged when the weather is suitable.

Prospective new members are welcome to join us at any of these meetings. The club welcomes new members of all ages, with help and advice on building and flying available for beginners.
