NEFR 2023

National Electric Flight Rally [NEFR]

Easter 2023,  April 7-10

NSW State Field Cootamundra

The following information is a draft based on NEFR 2022.  Watch for updates

The NEFR is a jamboree of electric flying activity for a group of friends who like to get together each year and have fun flying a range of regular and some fun events.

NEFR 2020 Title


This year the event will be held at the Aeromodellers NSW State Field, Cootamundra, at Eater 7th April 2023 - 10th April 2023

The field will be open on the 9th April for camp setup and free flying.  Below are various links giving more details. Keep checking this page for updates. All entrants must be MAAA affiliated.

In F5J prizes will be awarded to pilots flying 2m models, 3m models as defined in the AEFA rules and open gliders (that do nor qualify for 2m or 3m classes). 2m amd 3m planes will not fly seperate groups or rounds.

Similarly, “Radian” has been morphed into a new E-RES event which remains open to Radian flyers. Considerable interest is building in this event with many flyers already building and flying models in local events. Rules for E-RES NEFR can be found Click Here

Consider entering "Scale".  The rules are fairly elastic, with a safe take off and landing the minimumdemonstration of skills for judging.  Matbe even just takeoff!  Practice some manourvers and enjoy the flying.

So start preparing your models and lodge an entry form which you will find at the end of this article.   You will find details at the end of this article.  Although we wish to be inclusive, those events that do not receive at least five entries might be cancelled. 

The AEFA AGM will be held in conjunction with a roast dinner at the field on the Saturday night.
