Gala Day 2014 - 17th August 2014

Thanks to Howard Murphy for providing the pictures from LMAC Gala Day 2014. After a wet start, the rain cleared by the wind remained! There was still an excellent turn out and I hope the members and guests enjoyed the BBQ food which was kindly laid on.  Many thanks to all those who helped and made the day a good one.

A 1st and 2nd for LMAC

The ink on the new BMFA Multi-Rotor A and B tests had hardly had time to dry having been published late on Tuesday 12th August, but LMAC members John Payne and Matt Chamberlain became the first known people in the country to pass the new BMFA A Multi-Rotor test on Wednesday 13th August as the sun was going down.  The tests were examined by our newly appointed Helicopter Examiner Richard Van Aken and were also overlooked by BMFA Cheif Examiner Andy Symons who was visiting LMAC on Wednesday to carry out some noise testing experiments.

Well done to both John and Matt and hopefully some of the other LMAC multi-rotor pilots will work towards these achievements too.
