You may be aware that the BMFA and other model organisations have been in negotiations with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and Department for Transport (DfT) about the flying of model aircraft. This has led to the CAA issuing a 'Joint ‘Permission' that allows BMFA members (and other defined organisation members) to continue operating ‘conventional’ model aircraft (excluding multi-rotors) weighing less than 7Kg at heights in excess of 400ft. Also an exemption’ has been given to BMFA members to operate ‘conventional’ model aircraft (excluding multi-rotors) weighing less than 3.5Kg at heights up to 1000ft using First Person View.
