Notice

Important Update on CAA Drone regulations

 

To conform to the new Drone Regulations, you must either possess a BMFA “A” or “B” certificate or pass the online competency test. You are also required to pay £9 in addition to your BMFA membership fee.

For those who have their A or B certificates you can pay the £9 fee at the same time as you renew your BMFA membership online. This should be done by 31 December 2019 to enable you to continue flying from 1 January 2020.

However, for those who do not have an A or B certificate, you must pass the online test by 30 November 2019 to continue flying from that date.  I quote a recent extract from BMFA:

 

Article 94F of the Air Navigation Order introduces the requirement that from 30th November 2019  all remote pilots of model aircraft or drones (small unmanned aircraft, SUA) with a mass of 250gm or more flown outdoors, including free flight, not to fly the SUA unless the CAA has issued the remote pilot with an acknowledgement of competency valid for the flight.

However the CAA have issued an exemption for BMFA members who hold a Basic Proficiency Certificate,  and either A or B Certificates. The CAA will also accept as proof of competency our new BMFA Registration Competency Certificate which has been launched today.

To take the online BMFA Registration Competency Certificate test go to https://rcc.bmfa.uk/rcc

Please note that if you do not hold a BMFA achievement certificate you must either take the CAA online test at https://register-drones.caa.co.uk/ or the BMFA Registration Competency Certificate at https://rcc.bmfa.uk/rcc by 30th November if you intend to fly.

As you can see from the above, you can take the test through the CAA website or through the BMFA one but please note the 30 November deadline.

Our membership secretary Keith Malcomson (07770 - 036200) is very willing to guide you through the process and encouragingly, several of our members have already passed the test.
