Latest BMFA Advice


The following advice issued today by the BMFA effectively closes the flying site.
Please stay safe.



All areas of England have now been placed in to Tier 4.

The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (All Tiers) (England) Regulations 2020 have also been amended.

Whilst outdoor exercise is still allowed, either alone or with one other person, we are now no longer permitted to leave our homes to visit public outdoor places for the purposes of open air recreation. The definition of public outdoor places has also been amended and now no longer includes outdoor sportsgrounds or sports facilities.

Outdoor sportsgrounds or sports facilities (which includes model flying club sites and BMFA Buckminster) have also been added to the list of venues that must close.

Guidance relating to other areas of the UK remains the same as in our update of 22/12/2020 see https://bmfa.org/News/News-Page/ArticleID/2707/COVID-19-Regulations-Update-22-12-2020


BMFA insurance remains in place when flying lawfully and the personal accident cover is in place should you do something untoward to yourself in the workshop. The day to day work protecting model flying and assisting members and clubs is ongoing and the BMFA office remains manned and open during the lockdown period.
