From the horses mouth, the LMA are undecided about what to do about exams and registering, they await their AGM.

There is nothing on the BMFA website that says we can only fly at height if the dres exam and registration is taken with them, the only bit you get is to wait until 31st January 2020 until doing so.

Yep, that’s what I said, you don’t have to take the exam with the BMFA but to take it and be a member!

Terry, everybody who flies unmanned aerial vehicles weighing more than 250 grams has to register (and take the online test) and is limited to 400ft, but if you are a member of the BMFA, LMA, FPVUK, SAA then you have an exemption to fly above 400ft. You can do the CAA registration direct or via BMFA or LMA which will use your proficiency achievement instead of the online test.

You are referring to a CAA short term site specific exemption here, yes?

Yes Frank, I have understood most of that info for the past year. It was Marks replies to Cliffs two latest posts regarding the BMFA web site that I have not fully understood.

I was trying to get across that you can take the test but it’s the membership of the national associations that gives you the exemptions. The LMA say they are not taking note of the operators ID numbers so it’s up to the individual to comply.

I understand some members have been told their fees will be paid, the emails didn’t get this far south! Ten weeks to the deadline, when things need doing I like to get on and do it.
