The following sentences are from "Happy Hobbies and Other Stories" by Emma Thomson.

"Felicity’s week had been her most hectic ever! On Monday she’d had
lunch-time flying club and cloud-trekking after school.On Tuesday
she’d been to ballet class in the evening."

I would like to know accurate meaning of "she’d had lunch-time flying club".

Does the underlined sentence mean that she took part in an activity of lunch-time flying club?

It means that she took part in a flying-club activity when it was her lunch-time.

Hi Clive

Thank you very much for your quick answer.

Reading your comment I understood that the word "lunch-time" functions as an adverb and modifies the sentence "She'd had flying club".

Is my understanding correct?

Hi,

No, 'lunch-time' is used here as an adjective to describe 'flying club'.

It's like saying 'afternoon tea', 'morning sickness'.

The phrase suggests to me that the flying club activity is only available at certain times. If it were available all the time, I'd say she had 'flying club at lunchtime', where 'at lunchtime' would be an adverbial phrase. Perhaps that's what the writer really meant. I don't know.

Yes, she joined a flying-club activity during lunch time.
