Well I figure if I have same driver as Chris, we'll score same points, ain't going to catch him that way, so stuck with my team, and why not, it's my predicting that's the problem. Some rain would be good. wink

Looks like the buddy box question has been answered in our favour - from Andy Symons on FB...

"Productive CAA meeting yesterday. No exemption required for buddy box flights. The CAA fully accept the BMFA position that the person holding the slave TX is neither the operator or remote pilot.

Of course the aircraft will need a valid Op Id on it and the person on the master TX must hold a competency."

Great news, well done folks.

Plenty were telling us to wait until the 14th as there was some big meeting between the BMFA and the CAA - did it happen, has anything be heard yet?



Meeting was set for today, we'll get an update asap I would think.

Thread: BMFA numbers. Is this true, or a gross exaggeration?

I don't have the answer.

Fishing, you need a car, there's rules aplenty, it ain't on your doorstep, club fishings a big thing, it's expensive, trust me, you're out in all weathers, more traveling than modelling, you have to work at it to be successful.

Our hobbies not unique in having drawbacks, so what are our positives ?

We've had a few of the 40 something ish members, join over the last few years, would be interested in how you think they can be targeted.

I remember being one of the young pups in the hobby, now one of the old fellas. They used to say "Don't give him a go, he'll pull the wings off) surprise

Never happened, ever, honest.

When I wor a lad.... There was always the parade through our village, people just stood there quietly and respectfully as it passed, your Dad might go for a pint as you went home, I miss those days.

Today it seems to me to have been hijacked, and not for the better.

wonder what's happening in the real world, how its all been interpreted,since my earlier post seems i'm not the only one slightly confused?...……. my sympathy go's out to all committees of clubs who are BMFA affiliated, they need to have 100% to proceed on sub's night's...….

ken dept.

I'm on a committee Ken, this is no big deal, life will go on.

Hello John, tbh i deffinatly agree with you there.

i think i will stay away from these new reg threads, what with family matters and health i haven't flown this year club and BMFA fees paid, am itching to test fly some large aircraft. I think i will stop watching an follow more productive threads instead of all this to put it politely rubbish.

Wise move Colin, soon be Spring, take care. yes

10/11/2019 20:45:04

Keep calm and carry on Colin.

These threads do more harm than good, but that's just my opinion.

No matter how many times the BMFA offer reassurance, ever little iota gets picked over endlessly, in a negative manner, how many people will have given up in despair, by the time we've finished ?

Talk your hobby up for a change.

10/11/2019 20:05:10

Will the BMFA be offering councelling for the trauma suffered ?

09/11/2019 19:07:49

May be other boats along in the future.

Well, there's the stated purpose and the intended purpose, and as with most government schemes, its often difficult to distinguish if the two are the same!

My point is that if the vast bulk of registrations come from the associations, it will raise the question of why the DfT / CAAis bothering at all, as it will just be a duplication of effort.

I believe we may be in danger of undermining the negotiating power of our associations if too many members register directly with the CAA.
