This event will be in conjunction with the GBR/CAA ( Great Britain Radio Control Aerobatic Association). There will be levy of £7.50 per pilot for the day. To compensate we are planning to provide pilots and supporters with a bbq/bacon roll.
You must: Hold a BMFA “A” Certificate.
We are aiming to have 4 mentors so that they will have 3/4 new pilots each to coach during the day.
Please ensure that the model you will be bringing with you can meet the BMFA’s 82 db noise limit. It would be best to get this measured at your Club and to bring a certificate to this effect. However, we reserve the right to noise check any model that we consider to be noisy! As regards trimming your model, you might wish to see this guide on trimming on the GBR/CAA website http://www.gbrcaa.org/acrobatfiles/Trim.pdf.
Most of all the emphasis on the day will be relaxed and good fun. We hope you have an enjoyable day and come away feeling that you have learned a lot.
