Well done - Helicopter BMFA Tests

Congratulations to Richard Van Aken and Matt Chamberlain who passed their BMFA Helicopter Examiner and B certificates respectively on Saturday 26th July. We now have a Helicopter examiner once again, so anyone wishing to work towards their A and B tests is encouraged to do so and Richard and Matt will be on hand to assist.

Thanks to those LMAC members who patiently waited to fly whilst we completed the tests. Many thanks also to BMFA Examiner Adrian Clarke who traveled across from Stratford Upon Avon to carry out the tests.

Warbird Day 2014 - 20th July 2014

Many thanks to all those members and visitors who attended the LMAC Warbird 2014 themed day. Having checked the sign-in book, there were 36 distinct members who attended the site on Sunday and that doesn't include the many visitors who were also present on the day. There were some fantastic models flown and on display. Hopefully this won't be the last of the LMAC 'themed days' and if anyone else has any suggestions for other themed events then please let us know. Enjoy the pictures and hopefully I was able to capture most of the warbirds and other models which were on display/flown.

Helicopter - BMFA Achievement Scheme Day - Saturday 26th July 2014




For all those members who are looking to attain their Helicopter BMFA A, B or Examiner certificates, we have arranged for a BMFA Area Helicopter examiner to visit the club on Saturday 26th July to examine a number of helicopter pilots. The BMFA achievement scheme helps promote safe flying and as club members, this is something which we should all be striving for.

Leading up to the 26th July, we will be running sessions where the different schedules can be practiced and assistance will be provide to help you with this. Just speak to Richard Van Aiken or Matt Chamberlain if you need any help and wish to participate on the 26th July.

We will be keeping a watchful eye on the weather forecast leading up to the date, so keep an eye on this page and the LMAC Facebook page for more details.

Similar schemes for Fixed Wing pilots are also being planned; so watch this space!
