The CAA and The BMFA have now introduced their online test . They differ slightly in content and are not difficult by any means .
If you do NOT have a BMFA achievement scheme A ,B or C certificate then you MUST take the test on or before the 30th of November 2019 if you wish to continue flying . This test last for three years and The certificate your issued should be carried with you at all times when flying your models as you may be asked to produce it.
Those of you who only fly indoor models DO NOT have to take any test nor are you required to register.
As members of the BMFA you will not have to register until you renew your membership in January as the BMFA have negotiated an exemption. Once registered you will be issued a ID number that you will have to affix to your models . This number will probably be issued in February . The number can be fixed inside the model provided that no special tools are needed to get to the number . (a screw driver is not classed as a special tool ) This number will be sent to you shortly after registering .
On renewal with the club you will also have have to pay the £9 registration fee in addition to the Club subs and BMFA subs unless you have done your BMFA independently . The £9 CAA fee is an Annual Charge . NB By paying the £9 Charge you agree to the BMFA sharing your details IE Name, Address ,DOB and e-mail address with the CAA.
