Due to a NATO meeting being held in Newport Wales on 3rd to 5th September, NATS has placed a flying restriction over a wide area that encompasses our flying site on Crook Peak. The BMFA have confirmed this flying restriction includes model flying. Click on this link to read the BMFA notification.

The link to the PDF document detailing the restriction on BMFA, BBC, ITV, etc. is broken. However if you click on this link: NATS Aeronautical Information Service website, a list of flight restrictions can be viewed. Look for the title: “North Atlantic Treaty Organisation Summit, Newport, Gwent – 3rd to 5th September 2014.
