20. MODEL FLYING DISPLAYS

If you or your club intend to hold a model flying display it is essential that you obtain both the Display Organiser’s Handbook 2016 and the Public Display Form 2016.  This latter form is so that your insurance can be upgraded to allow for a Public Display. Both these documents can be obtained from the Leicester Office or downloaded from the BMFA web site.

The Handbook has been prepared to give guidance to organisers of, and participants in, public displays which include model flying as part of a demonstration or entertainment. It contains a wealth of information that will assist the organisers in meeting their direct responsibility for the safety of spectators and nearby persons and property.

It does not apply to

(a)   competitive model flying events where spectators attend in the knowledge that model aircraft will be taking part in contest flying; for these events specific safety rules are included in the appropriate competition rules; or

(b)   general model flying, the safety requirements for which are covered in the BMFA Safety Code for General Flying.
