Attention - Fernie Hunt Pony Club Meeting - Please avoid overflying our North boundary during this time.

We have been informed, by the District Commissioner for the Fernie Hunt Pony Club, that there is to be a Pony Club Camp on our neighbor's land during the period July 24th to the 28th. We have been asked to refrain from flying model aircraft over the area that they are using for their camp, so can you please avoid, where possible, flying over the fields in use during that time. Thank you for your cooperation.

BMFA Free Flight and Power Nationals back on at RAF Barkston Heath in 2017

From the following BMFA Update:

https://www.bmfa.org/News/News-Page/ArticleID/2441/2017-Free-Flight-Nationls-Power-Nationals-at-RAF-Barkston-Heath

We are pleased to announce that arrangements to hold both the 2017 Free Flight Nationals and the 2017 Power Nationals at RAF Barkston Heath have been confirmed. The Free Flight Nationals will take place over the late May Bank Holiday weekend (27-29 May) and the Power Nationals will take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend (26-28 August).
The construction work which rendered the airfield unavailable to us last August for the 2016 Power Nationals has now been completed and the RAF have re-affirmed their long established and ongoing commitment to support our two Nationals wherever possible, subject to operational requirements.
We would like to express our gratitude to the Commandant of RAFC Cranwell and his team for their assistance and cooperation in facilitating our continued use of RAF Barkston Heath for 2017. Further details will be made available in the BMFA NEWS and on the BMFA website in due course.

The sad loss of our Honorable President - Peter Valentine


It is with a heavy heart and a deep sense of loss that I must report the passing of our honorable President "Peter Valentine" at 6am on Monday 2nd January 2017.
Those of you that knew Peter will know how tirelessly he worked for our club for many years where he held several Committee roles.
It is expected that Peter will be cremated as per his wishes and his ashes scattered at our flying site at Gumley.

God bless your soul Peter, a true friend to all at LMAC taken far too soon, Fly high.
