We are disappointed to report that we have received confirmation that RAF Barkston Heath will be unavailable to us in 2023 for either the Free Flight Nationals in May or the Power Nationals in August.
Alternative arrangements are being made for both events, with the FF Nats being relocated to Salisbury Plain and North Luffenham over consecutive weekends and the Power Nationals being ‘dispersed’ as in previous recent years. It is anticipated that a number of disciplines will use existing dates already on the calendar at BMFA Buckminster to hold their individual Nationals.
We hope to hold further discussions with the RAF regarding the use of RAF Barkston Heath in future years.
