**************Important update************

The UK government has indicated that there will be a four stage plan to move out of lock down starting on the 8th of March.

 

 

 

 

 

England – From March 8th 2021

Further to our announcement on 26th February, (see https://www.bmfa.org/News/News-Page/ArticleID/2722/COVID-19-Regulations-Update-26-2-2021 )

The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (All Tiers) (England) Regulations 2020 have been updated and take effect from Monday 8th March.
(See https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2020/1374/schedule/3A/2021-03-08 )

 

Outdoor sportsgrounds and facilities (which includes model flying club sites) remain in the list of business/services that must remain closed. The projected date for re-opening is March 29th, and will not be subject to the gatherings limits, but should be compliant with guidance issued by national governing bodies, see https://clubsupport.bmfa.uk/6-steps-to-covid-secure

 

From Monday 8th March, outdoor recreation (and therefore model aircraft flying) is permitted in public outdoor places, either alone, with members of your household or with one other person. A public outdoor place for the purposes of the regulations is a public outdoor place where no payment is required by any member of the public to access.

BMFA insurance remains valid when flying lawfully.

It is permitted to leave home for voluntary services where it is not possible to do so from home and therefore essential field maintenance can be conducted, this must however be done in a COVID secure manner.

 

 

 

 

Flying legally

Make sure you know the rules before you think about buying an RC model 

If you fly a model outdoors that weighs over 250 grams, you must be registered as an operator with the CAA. The BMFA make this very straightforward
