New BMFA Fixed Wing Flight Training Manual.

The Achievement Scheme Review Committee is pleased to announce the launch of the new BMFA RC Flight Training Manual, 'A Flying Start'.

This new manual has been developed by the ASRC, as a modern user-friendly replacement for the old training manual 'Up & Away'.

'A Flying Start' utilises a modular format, which for the first time includes colour photographs and diagrams, as well as providing details of the prior knowledge & experience required at the start of each module. Importantly, it also covers electric as well as i.c. powered aircraft. A template training log is also included.

The new manual will be the definitive reference for all BMFA instructors, who are after all, the unsung heroes of our hobby. They work tirelessly to help newcomers make the best and safest start they can, and ultimately help individuals prepare for achievement scheme tests.


Copies of ‘A Flying Start’ are available as a free download from the BMFA website by clicking here alternatively hardcopies are available be sending a cheque for £3.00 (includes p&p) made out to "BMFA" to the office.

The new manual will be reviewed by the ASRC on an annual basis, in order to ensure that it remains current. Any comments on this or any other achievement scheme docuements, should be made to the ASRC, via the BMFA Leicester office.
