The Flying Site
Our flying site is situated in the middle of the island of Malta, in the plain just below the historic capital city Mdina.
The site actually occupies the last part of the northern end of a historical (now disused) runway called Ta' Qali (Ta' Kali). This very famous airfield was home to the elite 126 and 249 RAF Hurricane and Spifire fighter Squadrons throughout World War II and then, right up to the sixties with the advent of the first Meteor and Vampire jets, also from the Royal Australian Airforce (RAAF). Our MMAFA site facilities include our club house, car parking, model preparation pits, taxiways and the runway. In 2016 a modern all weather shelter sheltering the greater part of the pits area, measuring approx. 40m x 6m was completed. Co-funded thanks to an EU sports capital projects scheme launched by Sport Malta and members donations. We fly off truly hallowed ground!
The asphalt runway is about 650 feet long and 300 feet wide and is oriented in a NW/SE direction which is the mostly prevailing wind direction on the island. It is reserved for the exclusive use of the Association under a formal lease from the Government.
