Promoting Safe & Lawful Flying
The area does this through administering the national BMFA Achievement Scheme at local level.
The area aims to arrange a number of Achievement Scheme seminars and workshops every year.
Could you club host an achievement scheme workshop or testing day?
Promoting Affiliated Clubs and the BMFA
Every year the area attends a number of events to promote model aircraft flying and also supports clubs that are attending events. From large public events, to model flying shows right through to country fairs and village fetes. We often need volunteers to hep and we can also assist you if you are planning on promoting model flying at events.
Can you assist your Area at these events? Do you need help from us at an event your club is attending?
If so please contact us!
