Message from the BMFA Northern Area Achievement Scheme Co-Ordinator
I would like to introduce myself as the newly appointed BMFA Northern Area Achievement Scheme Co-Ordinator. My name is Charles Lee, Charlie to my friends and I’ve been a member of the KADMAC (Keighley & District Model Flying Club) for about 10 years where I hold the position of Treasurer and Club Examiner/Trainer. The days will be run informally, following on from the success of the Achievement Scheme Workshops which are run at Buckminster. Please contact me (details below) if you are able to help out or if you have any questions regarding the events. Charlie Lee.
We hope to provide food on the day, but again this will be subject to any coronavirus restrictions & guidelines.
These events will be held at the Pontefract & District Aeromodellers (PANDAS) club flying site situated within the grounds of Pontefract race course (thanks to the PANDAS members and committee for allowing the use of their field & facilities to host the events).

Charlie will be looking for other sites to host further events in the future. If you think your club can assist, please let Charlie know.
The idea of the days is that members who are interested in either taking a test or need any advice or tuition can come along. Examiners and instructors will be on site to help and assist.
If you are a club instructor or examiner and would be available to assist on either of these days, please click the link below to register your details and availability:
Please make sure you have the following with you if you are attending on either day: BMFA Membership Certificate. Proof of Competence under Article 16. A suitable aircraft to take any test or practice with.
The events will commence at 1000 each day with the flying site access gates open from 0930 onwards.
To assist with catering and numbers you need to register to attend (click the links below for registration forms).
It is strongly recommended, that even if you hold another form of competency under Article 16, that you take and pass the current 40 question BMFA Recognised Competency Certificate (RCC) – link below.
This certificate lasts for 5 years from the date you take and pass it. It brings you up to date with the current rules and regulations. It also exempts you from having to answer the mandatory question part of any BMFA Achievement scheme test.
