Club Safety

  1. Carry out ‘pre-flight’ checks before each flight as specified in your BMFA handbook,especially important as we are flying over crops and do not want aircraft coming down in them.

  2. Be SMART and consider and use the SWEETS regime before and during flying, copies are available on the club notice board and from the ‘download’ section of the club website.

  3. Engines are to be started and adjusted in the pits, petrol/glow engines and gas turbines may be started at the flight line securing posts. All models must be restrained at all times and aircraft should point towards the flight line.

  4. As soon as possible after takeoff, pilots should stand together in the pilot box area in front of the windsock.

  5. Under no circumstances must anyone taxi out of, or into the pits.

  6. Before takeoff or landing, pilots must let other pilots know their intentions by clearly calling 'takeoff' or 'landing'. In the event of a problem during a flight, it is important that other pilots are made aware so that they can take appropriate action.

  7. All flying must take place in front of the pilot and never over the pits, car park or the road to the East of the flying site.

  8. No member is allowed to fly solo unless they hold a minimum of the BMFA 'A' Certificate. Members without a BMFA 'A' Certificate should attempt the test as soon as possible, please speak to a member of the committee who will be able to put you in contact with the Club Examiner.

    Members must carry their BMFC & BMFA membership cards when using the flying field and they must be produced to any committee member on request.
