Stanpit Recreation Ground.

C&DMFC fly this site exclusively, by licence with the Council, (since 1966!).  Members may fly electric helicopters, fixed wing electic power models and gliders.

Helicopters and fixed wing power must not be flown outside the recreation ground boundaries, shown by a green line on the sketch.

There are two Bylaws – one for the recreation ground, the other for Stanpit Marsh. The Christchurch Borough Sports Council agree that flying over the Marsh is acceptable with a Glider, but this has not yet been ratified.

REMEMBER. Stanpit is a public area and under the CAA 658, article 74 & 73 we have an obligation to avoid people, structures, roads and aircraft including paragliders at all times.

Our Flight Line is around the old cricket mat.
