Welcome to Rolls-Royce (Hucknall) Model Aircraft Club


Further to the announcement from the Prime Minister on Saturday regarding new restrictions in response to the rapidly increasing cases of COVID-19, we must now update our advice for England to reflect this.

Members should continue to keep themselves updated on current government and NHS advice. Please see https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus for the latest information.

Members are advised to follow the precautions provided by the NHS at all times details of which you can find here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Subject to a vote of Parliament, the Government will introduce further restrictions from Thursday 5th November until 2nd December (at the earliest), which limit the reasons why people can now leave their homes for at least the next four weeks (see https://www.gov.uk/.../new-national-restrictions-from-5...).

BMFA - Covid-19 and a return to the skies - Update

Further to yesterdays update and in response to a number of member questions, we would like to add the following

Whilst a return to model flying is now possible for some (in England only) it cannot be considered as being business as usual. A trip to the flying site to socialise with more than one other member is not permitted under the current government advice and you should not be making arrangements to meet a group of others to go flying.

Please see link for more details.

The committee have reviewed the latest advice and have provided guidance in the members news section. BMFA logo

BMFA - Covid-19 and a return to the skies

The UK government has indicated that there will be some ‘relaxation’ of the current restrictions and that from Wednesday 13th May it will be possible to leave home and drive somewhere to engage in a sporting/recreational activity. Please see link for more detail.

The committee are reviewing this update and hope to give guidance regarding the safe use of the field shortly. Until that guidance is available, please do not use the field. BMFA logo

BMFA - Important Update

Good morning, following the recent update from the CAA we have had correspondence from members asking for clarification on the matter.

As always, the BMFA's CEO has been in communication with the CAA over the matter with the hope of bringing a clearer picture and concrete guidance for BMFA members.

With the social media rumour mill doing its best to muddy the waters, can we ask that our members please sit tight for 24 hours whilst Dave Phipps works hard for a clearer resolution. BMFA logo

Further updates will follow... please keep checking the BMFA's Official Facebook page, our website and your emails for further guidance.

This bulletin has since been updated - See Article 2640
