Interested in becoming a flyer? Want to know how best to begin?
The best place to start is by going to meet the club and the flyers either at the North Cliffs field and at our Monthly meetings. Our club members are more than willing to give you plenty of invaluable advice or show you want it's all about. If you are still interested then join us!
Apart from the advice and knowledge from our experienced fliers, we can also provide suitable training which will give you a much better chance (but no guarantees) of taking your plane home intact after a day's flying. The club will provide insurance through their membership scheme. Our club has experienced instructors, examiner/trainers who, if available, will teach the safety aspects of flying, as well as all essential skills necessary to fly your model. As you increase your skils you can work towards the British Model Flying Association (BMFA) proficiency tests. There are, of course, no guarantees that you will be able to successfully fly your model.
No you do not need a licence but you should ensure that you are insured against third-party claims. Insurance can be arranged either through the BMFA directly or through your local flying club for approx £28 per year. As a club we offer membership and insurance as an Annual Fee.
