Model Aircraft Law changes
You will be aware that the UK Government is bringing forward legal restrictions on model aircraft and drones to address a perceived drone problem. In particular:
- Sport flying should be kept below 400ft. Our maximum height at Beaulieu is 1000ft.
- Registration and certification are now required.
Please be aware of these changes and be prepared to support the BMFA and the BMFC to help protect your rights to continue model flying.
Learning to fly:
For those interested in learning to fly model planes the BMFC has instructors with access to the BMFC owned fully equipped training plane with a buddy box. This arrangement lets beginners learn to fly without stress or worry about crashing. For those wishing to take advantage of this please contact the committee via the Contact Us page.
