Mike,
Did you get the last copy of the LMA journal just before Christmas?

Re: Buckminster fly in

Flyins are not ‘normal outdoor flying activities', they are specifically organised to get a group of people together to do a bit of flying and mainly socialise for several days/a week at a time. Many of our flyin attendees are in the ‘at risk’ group who are being advised to self-isolate for the next...

Re: CAA Operator I.D...what did we pay for

If anyone has NOT received an email from the CAA, but they did ask the LMA to register them with the CA, please let me know.

Re: Flyer ID

after june you will only be legal to fly if you do the test online. No that is not correct. After June we will be flying under an 'Article 16' operating authorisation that will also cover remote pilot competency. That will not include everyone having to do the CAA online test. The last issue of the...

They are the dates when you'll be able to say that you are actually coming, what models, download passes and so on. They aren't the actual show dates!

If you selected the option on the renewal form at the AGM to request CAA registration, you don'...

Re: 2020 Renewals

Online renewals are now available, in the members area as usual.
