Where & When

Who's flying when and where....
We often fly Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons, weather permitting! Check the 'Where and When' page if you plan coming to join us for time and location as we don't have set times and places!

Use wind direction from weather forecast and the chart below to get an idea of where people are likely to be flying, e.g. wind from the West, likely to be Edgworth. The arrows (where shown) indicates direction bias towards where the hill is deemed to work better from.

  1. BMFA have published good news. Andy Symons (Club Support Officer) has confirmed that 'For aircraft under 7kg we have an exemption to the 400' limit for conventional aircraft (fixed wing and helicopters) without autonomous capabilities'. Looks like we can carry on as normal.

    You will also be aware of the need to pass a simple online test and register as a 'drone operator' under the DRES scheme, though it looks like this is further delayed. The BMFA have suggested we wait until further instruction from them before proceeding
