Welcome the site of Springwood Nepean Model Aero Club  Inc

The Club has been operating at its current site for about 30 years; it has been supporting model flyers in the Penrith and Blue Mountains area since the early 60’s.


The majority of members are “social fliers” and we fly most Saturday mornings and Sundays for the fun of it.


The members fly a wide range of models from small electric, glow and larger gas planes. We even have a number of members who have ventured in to the world of gas turbines.  


Some of our members also fly helicopters. Even though we have a control line area we have not seen a control line flyer for many a year.
