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


COVID-19 - Government advice

In response to instructions from Government all club meetings are postponed.

Please stay safe and do your part in saving lives.

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
