Lincoln Aeromodellers was founded in 1963 as a model aeroplane flying club operating then from West Common in Lincoln, with the inaugural meeting taking place under the old horse racing stand next to West Common. Our Honorary Member joined LAM shortly after 1963 and to this day remains a very keen modeller (and classic car restorer).
We’re known as LAM, however, if you Google LAM, there’s a good chance you’ll be taken to LAM Mozambique Airlines. Same sort of thing, but they have slightly larger aeroplanes.
Nearly 60 years after its formation, LAM now operates from South Scarle, a lovely little village in Nottinghamshire just off the A1133 somewhere between Newark and Lincoln. The flying field is on Plot Lane to the south of the village, and the field is arguably one of the finest flying surfaces in the Midlands.
A full-size aero club operates alongside LAM with their strip bordering our field, and it’s great to see small aircraft and microlights come and go.
We’re a friendly club of around fifty members made up of pilots of all skill levels, ranging from beginners to high-class competition pilots; and we all share one quality – the desire to help each other, and especially new flyers.
All ages and levels of flying ability are welcomed at the club.
If you’re a prospective or new member looking at our web site for the first time, then there’s some very handy and quite important information within, so have a good look around. If you are an current club member, then you may want to use this web site more for reference or reminders.
