BMFA Buckminster opens Monday 8th May!!

The new National Visitor Centre and Model Flying site opens at 9am on Monday 8th May for model aircraft flying.

See the National Centre website at for further details.

Check the status box on the front page of the website for the proposed activity over the coming three days (continuous update).

But the aim is to run sport R/C as the primary activity for the first three days with control line circles also in operation and to accommodate season ticket holders as well as day tickets.

Limits for R/C will be electric and I/C aircraft up to 7kg and I/C models limited to 82DBa at 7 metres as per the DOE noise code.

Free flight will be accommodated as a secondary activity on these dates but there will be some days coming up where FF is the primary activity.

The site will be open from 9.00am on Monday so why not drop in for a coffee and a fly (tea/coffee will be available initially on a self service basis)

Park in the stoned area and call in at reception when you arrive.
