The BMFA has announced that the Midland Area has a new website, www.midland.bmfa.org to which WMF members can subscribe and receive news automatically.

The club has produced it’s Privacy Notice to explain how it will handle member’s data.  This has been necessary in order to comply with new legislation due to come into effect in May.  The Policy Notice can be found in the Club Information section of these web pages.

For those that have not seen it, the BMFA have produced an excellent booklet on LiPo batteries.  It is well worth reading even for those who are (or think they are) familiar with these batteries. Click here to open.

If you are interested in learning to fly or receiving some training or some help setting up your Transmitter / receiver / AS3X / plane then click on this link and complete the form to help us understand your needs.  There is also a training page and training etiquette page in the Flying Information section.  Please note: this is only available to Club members.  Non-members should apply to join first.

If you provide me with pictures of your planes I will produce your own page / add them to your existing page.  Photos and dates of maiden flights are also welcomed.  Please send them to me for inclusion.  Ideally the original unedited photos should be sent.  Some basic information about the plane is also required (see other existing pages for typical info)
