15. MODEL FLYING DISPLAYS
If you or your club intend to hold a public model flying display it is essential that you obtain the BMFA Model Flying Display Handbook (Appendix A to the Members’ Handbook) and apply to the BMFA for a Display Permit (as a condition of our Article 16 Authorisation).
Full details of the proposed display (and a copy of the risk assessment and other supporting documentation) must be submitted to the BMFA to obtain a BMFA Display Permit (the CAA no longer issue permissions for model flying displays and have delegated the responsibility to the BMFA). Applications may be submitted via the BMFA website (https://rcc.bmfa.uk/) or the Leicester Office.
Display feature aircraft with MTOM’s greater than 25Kg will also require a LMA Display Permit too.
Guidance and templates for conducting a risk assessment are also available at https://rcc.bmfa.uk/.
