IMAC TRAINING WEEKEND. moved.

Postby Mal Green on Sat Feb 15, 2014 12:57 pm

With the agreement of BMFA who have helpfully facilitated this with the RAF, a two day introductory and training session for Pilots and Judges will be held at Barkston Aerodrome. The event is scheduled to take place on Easter weekend, the 19th to 20th of April. The event is open to all pilots holding at a minimum the BMFA “A” fixed wing certificate and will include demonstration flights including IMAC sequences in various classes and expert training for experienced pilots who may have an interest in taking up judging at IMAC competitions in the UK. It is hoped that from the many experienced pilots around England Scotland Wales and Ireland, North and South, experienced pilots will come along. Further information and possible updates to this and all other IMAC activities can be found on our website.
Bmfa insurance is required.
Hi, I will be the CD for this event, we can fly from 10.00 / 17.00, l will be at the main gate for 9.00am Sat.for entry at 9.30

Regards Mal.

Hope it goes well, sure it will from all the good things I've heard. I was hoping to come, but no way I'll get a pass-to-fly on Easter weekend - going to be hunting Cadbury's Cream Eggs with the kids :) Is it always on Easter weekend, or does it vary...?

Lost my BMFA certificates decades ago.

Would you take a French FFAM QPDD instead? kinda similar to a BMFA B, simple aerobatics, airspace control and safe model handling test , two examiners. It qualifies the pilot to fly at public demonstrations and is used as a competency test when flying at other clubs.

£195 for 2 nights is a little on the steep side, almost worth buying a tent and everything to go in it as it wouldn't cost much more, lol ;) Will have to see what else we can find :D
