Thread: BMFA Area Chief Examiner standards
05/12/2014 10:32:00

bearing in mind, all examiners are voulonteers giving up their time to do A B tests, using secret ballots is digusting. do the bmfa have a quque of people waiting to become ace's. i admire andys desire to educate and train novices. to compare judges with examiners in others sports is daft as training and passing anexam is not

competative. i for one am most grateful for the time they spend to help all and every one progress their flying ability

well done bbcwink, i took my a test without any warning at a club i was visiting in wales, where my brother flew. the examiner arrived to fly his helicopter and my brother badgerred him to do my test. i got told to get my plane ready as every other pilot landed so they could criticise every move i madeblush. the examiner had never seen my flying but asked the other pilots if they thought i was readysurprise lots of nodding heads so that was it off we go.knee's knocking i thought what the hell its not costing me nought i will go for it. flew better and more precise than i everdid before and passed with many cheers from the critics god bless them
