For the latest information on Registration, check out the 23 August update in the News section of the BMFA website (www.bmfa.org). It includes comment on insurance in the event of non-registration.
Gas Turbine model flying is suspended from 19:00 on Tuesday 23rd July, because of the fire risk to the surrounding crop. We will advise when Gas Turbines can fly again.
We have had to postpone weed killing for the time being, as a lack of significant rain for 4 weeks has pushed our grass into drought condition. We will let everyone know when it has recovered and we can commence spraying weed killer.
Just appeared on the BMFA website is the news that the CAA has issued a Consultation document that proposes an annual fee of £16.50 to register as an operator of unmanned aircraft. Check it out on the News section of the BMFA website. There is a link there, which also tells you how you can respond to the consultation. You will note that the BMFA point out that while we in the UK may have to pay £16.50 a year, in France registration will be free and valid for 5 years!
