Welcome to Sibley Model Aircraft


Ron Sibley has been a passionate hobbyist and model-maker for more than 75 years, specialising in light aircraft design. He has created a wonderful fleet of fully flying radio controlled aircraft with designs that span aviation, from Beleriot’s aircraft that completed the first flight across the Channel, through to modern military trainers.

All are radio controlled flying models, with some flown by Ron’s son John Sibley, who now prefers flying the real thing. John is an experienced helicopter pilot based at Bournemouth Airport.

Some are now available to purchase to discerning collectors.
