BMFA Western Area Invite All current and potential Club Examiners and Instructors to a day of fun and frolics hosted by Weston Model Flying Club.
Saturday 16th September 2017 at 10:00, see http://www.wmfclub.co.uk/location.html for directions.
This is the twenty-third Western Area Examiners workshop and we hope that you will support the event. The focus of this workshop is Multi-Rotor as requested by many clubs and we’re delighted that Chris Bradbury of BMFA video fame will be our demonstration pilot. Fixed Wing tests will also be covered in detail, including demonstrations, and Helicopter tests will be discussed. The objectives are to bring current Examiners and Instructors up to date with recent Achievement Scheme changes, to develop potential Examiners and Instructors, to promote consistency across the Area, to discuss the Scheme and to share experiences. There are also a few places for ‘BPC’, ‘A’ and ‘B’ test candidates (MR, FW or H) who will be very welcome, with the possibility of taking their test after the workshop if time permits. Numbers may be limited so please contact Steve Kirby at steve_kirby@tesco.net or on 07905 093886 as soon as possible to reserve your slot.
