2020 BMFA FREE FLIGHT COMPETITIONS UPDATE

Free Flight Corona Virus Actions

 As a result of the Corona Virus the FFTC are obliged to take action to re-organise the Free Flight contest calendar.  It is a fast-moving situation and things could and will change.  Based upon what we know at the moment, and to fit with the Government guide lines, the following actions have been agreed by the FFTC. 

  •        The Free Flight Nationals has been cancelled. 
  •        All BMFA FFTC contests are suspended until the end of May these being the 3rd Area, Northern and London Galas, F1ABC team selection, F1E and Space Modelling contests. 
  •        The Plugge Cup and Free Flight Overall Championships are suspended. 
  •        There will be a rebate for holders of the season contest entry tickets.  The amounts will be calculated when the situation returns to normal. 
  •        Test flying on Salisbury Plain Area 8 is allowed.  Remember the Government guide lines. 
  •        We have been advised by St Georges Barracks that North Luffenham is out of bounds until further notice.

 The FFTC will monitor the situation and keep all advised. The FFTC regrets this action but we must do this in order to comply with government guidelines.

 We will keep you posted as the situation develops. The FFTC will restart the competition calendar as soon as the situation allows.

 The BMFA Contest & Events Calendar (ConEvCal) will be updated noting the cancelled competitions.  The BMFA Competition Secretary has said that the BMFA ConEvCal is the primary source for competition information.
