Greenfields Model Flying Association (G.M.F.A) 

The Greenfields Model Flying Association (G.M.F.A.) was founded in the Autumn of 1995 following the strong interest shown by students on the practical section of a course written by former British National Model Flying Champion and Greenfields Head Teacher, Mr. Smith, called ‘Fluids and Flight’ in which students were required to design and build their own model aircraft that would actually fly. As their enthusiasm grew, it was decided that Mr. Smith would use his experience with powered free flight contest aircraft to prepare them to compete in the British National Championships in May 2006. Eighteen students went and took the first four junior places in the Hand-launched Glider Contest.

The following year, thirty-four attended the championships! A Greenfields team attended the Championships every year to May 2000. In 2011, the GMFA made a come-back.
