Club Events 2014

The following event dates are now confirmed.

Effort was once again made by the Events Committee to hold our events on alternative dates to other UK modelling shows.

To fly at our 'Electric Fly-In Weekend' or our September 'All Models Fly-In', pilots must hold at least a BMFA 'A' Certificate, or a 'B' if flying a turbine or large model.

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.

These two events are not open to the general public, but showing at least one BMFA Membership Card will allow you and a car full of mates or family onto the airfield.

The other event is a full weekend of 'Scale and Turbine powered' aircraft, and is open to the general public. You must hold a BMFA 'B' Certificate to fly at this event, 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 of these events, email the named contact for the respective event to confirm it is still going ahead, and for any additional information about the day.

More details will be posted on this website nearer the dates, and also on the BMFA classifieds pages.
