If it has a formal airfield then the name would indicate what it is, such
as the 'Avondale Model Flying Club' but this tag needs a bit more
investigation and discussion as there are over 800 clubs affiliated to the
British Model Flying Association, some are indoors, some are outdoor
airfields for model and large model aircraft. At a glance I would say there
are more than a hundred of these outdoor airfields dotted around England.
I agree with the tag leisure but would suggest leisure=model_airfield and
leisure=largemodel_airfield for the area (a lot of the leisure tags are for
'a place' or 'designated area'). As there are tags and rendering for
runways, etc. for normal airports these can be used here as well to tag the
take-off strips etc.
