Forthcoming Events

Electric Fly-in  Postponed

New Dates

17th Octoberber 2021 

Reserve date 24th October if weather dictates.

Check this web page at 08:00 on the day to confirm that we are going ahead or, alternatively, postponing.

This event is open to all, subject to evidence of insurance.

Our annual Electric Fly-in is back after last year’s Covid break.

Come along to our excellent flying site and meet up with other flyers from local clubs and around the country. There is no entry fee and there will be free burgers and hot drinks to keep you fuelled up during the day. The grass strip is large and smooth enough for retracts, so bring those special models along to show off. Recent events have seen some stunning models and impressive electric set-ups, so it should be a great opportunity to view and discuss all things electric.

Pilots must have evidence of Insurance and, ideally, an A-cert or greater. (Don’t forget your operator ID on the model.) Those without an A cert will be allowed to fly, but under supervision.

Pilot briefing will be at 10:00 with flying all day until prize-giving at about 4:30. There will be prizes for best model and ‘Interesting Moments’ and there will also be a raffle.

See the ‘Field’ page on this website for a map.

This event is open to all BMAC Members

Our annual Fun Day is back after last year’s Covid break. This year, in addition to open flying sessions, we will have some flying challenges specially designed to allow participation by flyers of all abilities using any fixed wing models (IC or Electric).

Members will all receive details by e-mail. So look out for the messages, dust off the models and get ready to join in. We are hoping for a good participation and lots of fun.
