Tried to do mine but got:
"Profile Section Incomplete. Fields marked with asterisk (*) are required."
I checked my profile and there is nothing marked with a asterisk on any of the tabs!

Did mine today but would like a new insurance card as the one I have is now 3 years old. How do you go about getting a new certificate?

It was attached to your confirmation email.

Thanks Andy, attachments had been blocked by Outlook.

I tried just now and when I went to the "cart" there was a message showing my details but saying " these items does not "(sic) "meet the purchasing rule criteria ". My CAA registration runs until July next year, so I suspect this is why, and I shall try just renewing the BMFA membership, but I wonder if anyone will remind me to renew the CAA registration in the summer. I shall almost certainly forget!

I got exactly the same, but I worked around it. My problem was that the Gender entry in my profile was empty (didn't initially have asterisk though). Once I filled the Gender tab in, the asterisk appeared and all was then ok.

Question for Andy Symons.

I've just renewed my membership and CAA registration. I have received 3 emails with receipt, BMFA certificate and CAA exemptions, but (as I half expected) no new CAA Operator number. Will BMFA be sending data across to CAA in batches similar to last year to allow them to issue the new Operator ID? If so, what are the planned dates?

Many thanks and glad to see system is working (with a few minor issues).

I had that problem as well, and although my profile page showed the Gender correctly, the gender field on the "update details" page was empty. Fill that in and save then do the renewal immediately, as the field seem to empty itself again later.

Andy Symons is aware and investigating.

A question: does any one know for definite, no assumption that it will be the same as last year, what 'toy aeroplane tax' the CAA are going to charge for 2021?

Yes Gonzo. It's £9. I've renewed via BMFA.

Hi,

I have the same question.

I renewed my BMFA on 1st December and my CAA two days later, (it wouldn’t work at the same time as the BMFA renewal. I got my new BMFA membership card but have heard nothing from BMFA or CAA regarding my Operator ID. Do I take it from this that the Operator ID remains the same?

Look forward to getting confirmation.

You can check on the BMFA GoMembership website. Go to: My Profile>Member details and it's shown towards the bottom.

Mine has changed as I went direct to the CAA last year but via the BMFA this year.

That's interesting!

My existing OP number has been extended by 1 year into Feb 2022. I thought the CAA were going to issue new numbers.

What's the story behind this?

Maybe it’s an anniversary thing. We did not get the CAA numbers until February or March We would be moaning like hell on here if we didn’t get a year for our 9 quid

Thanks John,

I checked and the OP ID remains the same. The question I suppose is will it remain the same?

I’m not sure if the CAA will be changing the OP ID annually as some people have said. Have I missed something?

I don’t look forward to replacing OP ID’s.

A question for Andy or Membership team?

I think it is a bit confusing because the CAA rules under which we fly will be changing at the 31st December, and their system with it.

I registered last year via the BMFA so my existing OP ID is valid until February 2021, but I have also paid my next £9 via the BMFA recently so my registration is now shown as valid until February 2022.

I believe I can expect a new OP ID in February when my renewal is processed via the BMFA to CAA. The new OP ID should be the permanent one under the 1st Jan new system.

In times of change we have to expect a little confusion.

I found the answer to my question on an earlier thread, which I must have missed for some reason.......

Thanks Andy - that does sound like we won;t have the option of keeping our original numbers though- if what has been posted here is correct.

For those that renew before 1st Jan they will have the same number, but only for 1 more year, those that renew after will get a new number that will then stay with you.

Edit - apologies. The usual indents and vertical lines associated with quotes was lost during the cut and paste. The first paragraph belongs to leccyflier and the second to Andy Simons.

Thanks Bill,

I work on a computer all day so the last thing I would do is use the technology to renew

The postal renewal forms are in the post so all is well.

Tried to renew online, but gave up after an hour or so.

My wife is a family member, but the site wanted to charge her as a senior member in her own right.

I'll get on the phone tomorrow.
