Welcome to West London Model Aeroplane Club

Next club event
Wednesday, 14 July
Field Meeting
BBQ and Electric Flying
 

The club's complete current Covid protocols are now maintained on their own page on this website which will be updated whenever the situation changes: Covid protocols.

Mar/Apr 2021 COVID update

The field has now re-opened effectively under the same rules that were in force late last year (see the separate page). 

The BBQs at the field will go ahead, starting from June, as we usually have fewer than 30 present.  We will still minimise use of the club hut for this.

The fun day is provisionally re-arranged to 8th August in the expectation that the Covid rules in force at the time will allow.

2021 legal updates

The rules governing model flying have been almost entirely replaced for the new year.  In general this will not change how we operate as the model flying associations have an "Article 16 authorisation" permitting us to operate as before.  A summary of the new rules as they affect our club are here: /legal-update.aspx

However there is one thing you must do if you are using a BMFA certificate as proof of competence.  If so, you must log onto the BMFA portal at https://bmfa.azolve.com and tick the box to say that you are aware of the Article 16 rules. 

If you've done the online legal questions test (either the BMFA "rcc" one or the CAA "DMARES" one) then this is not necessary.  But for anyone else using a BMFA certificate, it is not legal to fly until you have ticked this box.
