Club Events 2010

The following event dates are now confirmed.

Effort is made by the Committee to hold our events on alternative dates to other UK modeling shows.

To fly at our 'Electric Fly-In', pilots must hold a BMFA 'A' Certificate for any model being flown.

There will be an assistant for each pilot on the flight line.
This person can be provided by Hucknall MAC, or be one of your flying colleagues if you prefer.

Proof of insurance and certificate of competence will need to be shown before flying.

This event is not open to the general public, but showing at least one BMFA Membership Card will allow you onto the airfield.

The other two events are full weekend events, and are open to the general public.
You must hold a BMFA 'B' Certificate to fly at one of these events, due to the presence of the general public.

The flying will commence at 10:00am on each date, and end at around 4:00pm.

Before you travel to any these events, email the named person below for the respective event to confirm it is still going ahead, and for any additional information about the day.
