If it is within 5k of the end of a runway then it will be affected.

Re: 2019 Air Navigation order Update - Potentially Important!

Basically only affects anyone less than 5km from the ends of runways of these airports Rob? Detailed information about civil licensed aerodromes published in the UK AIP (including RAF Northolt).

Re: Steam Fair Show 2020

Just a thought here- as this is Spring Bank Holiday, could caravans be allowed to stay on site for the week? Many people love the idea of Cornwall but the thought of the holiday traffic puts many off. Going there just for the Saturday and Sunday would be prohibitive for many. Including those dates i...

Re: Spraying camouflage

One way is to cut card shapes to the camo lines, then glue some strips of scrap balsa to the bottom, hold over the join, and spray. The gap formed by the balsa gives a soft edge.

Re: Head Office

You obviously have a beef with the BMFA, Alan, none of my business, I just think both organisations are working for the good of the hobby, and I'm glad they are.

Re: Head Office

Then that club can not be affiliated, Alan, which is a shame for them, as there are distinct advantages.

Re: Head Office

Yes, I'm sure you are right Steve. This has been discussed in the past. Our club is affiliated and it give various benefits for the club, we had a break in and they covered everything. For the cost of LMA insurance its hardly worth making a fuss, you will pay more for a broken prop these days.

Re: More content at shows

The free membership is a very nice gesture for flyers who to a show and risk their models. As you say, £20 is not much, but consider the cost involved in going to a show to fly? Last time I went to East Kirkby I had to go each day due to circumstances, and not camp. That resulted in £50 worth of die...

Re: Flypast
