I'm a member of more than one club & membership renewal will be soon for both. I received an email from the BMFA today & am wondering if it's worth me doing the BMFA membership myself as a country member ? I'm thinking this would save the hassle of waiting for club A to get my BMFA stuff to me before I can copy it & send it to club B.

Any pros & cons in doing things this way? Does anyone do the same?

Thanks J...

I do it that way and don't have any issues. I register online, pay online and a few days later everything arrives.

Club A can issue you with a temporary card for club B. Also - it all might be a lot quicker this year as we have the new membership portal - so club's do not have to peel off of the sticky labels, stick them to the form, make out another form, put it all in an envelope and snail mail it!

Question does the B.M.F.A. have reciprocal agreements with Canada's M.A.A.C and the A.M.A. of the U.S.A. or is a membership temporary or otherwise required on a visit to the U.K.

For a definitive answer on that I would suggest that you contact info@bmfa.org

Bear in mind you do not have to be a member of BMFA to fly in the UK - although BMFA Affliated clubs will require you to be so if you intend to fly there for any extended period of time. More to the point might be to check that your MAAC or AMA insurance covered you in the UK. If so I think most clubs would be fairly relaxed about letting you fly.

See BMFA Handbook "Member's Insurance" section page 11 extension (h) - might answer your question, if not, as BEB said, a call to the office certainly will.
