I consider myself fortunate indeed to have been able to get a last-minute maiden of the Petrel at CMFC yesterday before Johnson's Mass-Geezer-House-Arrest edict kicked in... Just a few clicks of up-trim were required, the model unsurprisingly a clone of Motley's version...

Well done Chris. Fred would be proud!

A couple more Petrels and you'll have matched your Minimoa tally?

C.C. All BMFA Members

Model flying and the COVID-19 Virus - News Release 17-3-2020

We have been monitoring the current situation carefully and have been awaiting clear guidance from the Government before making decisions relating to general model flying and BMFA Model flying events, contests and roadshows.

It is clear that the COVID-19 situation is developing rapidly in the UK and members should keep themselves updated on current government and NHS advice. Please see https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-e ... t-response for the latest information.

Members are advised to follow the precautions provided by the NHS at all times details of which you can find here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/



Model Flying in the club environment

In general terms model flying represents a low risk activity due to the predominantly outdoor nature of the activity and the opportunity to maintain inter-personal separation.

At this time, and subject to any updated government advice/instruction, for those who are not unwell there is little reason to curtail outdoor model flying activities in the club environment. The well-being benefits provided by model flying should be balanced by the potential risk and NHS precautions should be followed.

While there is little reason to curtail normal outdoor flying activities, clubs should consider what action to take regarding indoor club meetings and any proposed or scheduled larger events they have planned which, under present guidance, may have to be cancelled or postponed.



BMFA Organised events, contests and roadshows

The BMFA is currently reviewing the status of scheduled events. Several events/contests are already subject to cancellation including the Swapmeet at BMFA Buckminster, the ASRC Roadshows and the Free Flight Nationals. Planning for the Power Nationals in August is continuing on the assumption that it will be going ahead, but this will be kept under review.

Members should keep checking the Contest and Event calendar on the BMFA website for status updates on specific contests and events. Should contest/event organisers wish to amend/update their entries on the BMFA Calendar, please contact the office or complete the online request form here: https://e-forms.bmfa.org/event-amend.


BMFA Office

The BMFA Office functions will remain in operation, though the office may not be physically staffed to the usual level and we regret that for the time being we are no longer able to welcome visits from BMFA Members. We have measures in place to ensure that support for members and clubs continues. Please use admin@bmfa.org as the primary means of contact.

Important note:- Please stay at home and do not attend flying sessions, events, contests or meetings if:

you have been in contact with a COVID-19 patient
you are unwell, with a high temperature and/or a new continuous cough
you have serious underlying health issues

Kind Regards
All at the BMFA
