Mount Lothian Flying Site

Mount Lothian

The Club was originally formed as the “Edinburgh & Lothians Radio Model Flying Club”, changing to “East Fortune Aeromodellers” in 2002.

In 2005 the Club identified an alternate flying site at Mount Lothian (near Penicuik). This grass site is continuing to be developed as the Club’s alternative site for when East Fortune is unavailable due to race meetings utilising the track.

Wednesday evenings during British Summer Time are the Club’s formal time for the teaching of beginners at East Fortune, with regular flying on Saturday afternoons at East Fortune and Sunday afternoons at Mount Lothian. Currently, annual events include a Barbeque and Fly-In at Mount Lothian in the Summer, and two Fun-Flys at East Fortune after Christmas and New Year.
