It is over 20 years since ModelAir took over the organisation of model flying events at Old Warden. It is due to the determination of Mike and Joan Reynolds that these events didn’t just fade away when the modelling press stopped running them. Ken and Sheila supported Mike and Joan for many years, and following their retirement in 2014, have been managing the events with the support of the excellent ModelAir Team. Without them, these events would not happen. The current Shuttleworth Management Team is dedicated to supporting model flying at Old Warden and we are confident that our future is secure.
In large part, that future is also in the hands of aeromodelling Traders, Car booters and pilots, as well as enthusiasts, and our families, not forgetting the modelling press. Let’s remember that we are a strong team, working together to keep alive our passion for model building and flying.
ModelAir, Shuttleworth & Covid In 2020, Shuttleworth worked with the appropriate authorities to put in place their award-winning Covid protective measures, enabling them to successfully run their full-size airshows as Drive-ins. ModelAir benefitted from these measures in September 2020, and we will be organising our 2021 events following these same measures. Should government regulations change, these measures will change to meet the requirements as appropriate.
You can be assured that social distancing will be maintained at our events, whether on the flight line, trade area or as spectators.
If you register for our email updates, you’ll be regularly kept informed of any changes relating to Covid and to the ModelAir events. Please email us with “Newsletter” in the subject line.
The ModelAir Team looks forward to welcoming you in 2021.
