  3. So following on from the BBC's terribly irresponsible reporting regarding 1 Air Lingus pilot and an "unconfirmed sighting of an object" outside of the Gatwick Exclusion Zone, here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-48086013 I decided that enough is enough and wrote to the BBC to ask 2 questions: Q1. Who wrote and titled the article, or at the very least was responsible for it being published? Q2. What facts do you have to prove the 1 pilot had seen a drone? Well, in true BS fashion, the reply I got from the BBC South East edior today was this: Basically he just wrote back repeating what the article had said and avoided my question completely! So I replied back to him reminding him that I knew what the article states, and that he had completely ignored my 2 questions, and could he please answer the questions. Please do feel free to let Mr Gibbs (https://twitter.com/leegibbs_) know if you are dissatisfied with the reporting of Gatwick events as it seems to be his department that keeps inserting the words "Drone" into everything that moves anywhere in the South East! I will continue to keep on his case until he provides satisfactory evidence that backs up the BBC's use of the word "Drone" and failig that I'll be asking them to re-word there articles to stick to only what they can actually prove.

  10. This came in by email last night: Dear BMFA Club. The following was published on the BMFA website on the 15th June. Please pass on to your members. I think you will agree this is good news for us all and a big thanks to Dave Phipps. The latest meeting between the Department for Transport (DfT), Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and representatives from the UK Model Flying Associations took place this afternoon (Friday 15th June) at the DfT offices in London. The most urgent matter to address was the recent change to the Air Navigation Order (ANO) which introduced (in Article 94A) a 400ft height limit on the operation of all Small Unmanned Aircraft (SUA) which will come into effect on the 30th July 2018. Whilst the changes to the ANO are primarily aimed at regulating ‘drones’, the 400ft restriction will also apply to model aircraft below 7Kg. However, we are pleased to report that agreement was reached that the Model Flying Associations will collectively apply for an exemption from Article 94A to allow their members to continue operating model aircraft below 7Kg above 400ft as they do under the current ANO. The DfT and CAA were supportive of this course of action and did not foresee any reason why the exemption would not be in place in time for the 30th July. Negotiations on the other changes introduced in the ANO (operator registration and online testing for pilots) remain ongoing, but for now it is business as usual for members of the BMFA, LMA, SAA & FPVUK. Happy flying! https://bmfa.org/News/News-Page/ArticleID/2528/Update-on-changes-to-UK-Regulations-and-the-400ft-height-limit Stuart Willis. Area chairman

  12. This was a really interesting watch...
  13. Lots of changes to things these last 10 days, forum software upgraded, main website upgraded and some significant improvements made to site speed and server software it runs on. In English, it should be quicker, stays secure and is coming into-line with GDPR because you now ALL need to login and give the club permission to send you newsletters. If you don't, you will not get them.
