BMFA Achievement scheme



The aim of the RC Achievement Scheme is to encourage RC model flyers to improve their standard of flying and safety, and to raise awareness of the legal controls relating to model aircraft flying and to prove that standard and awareness to an Examiner. The scheme is run by the BMFA as a National Scheme and it is open to all RC model flyers, including non-members.


The SMAC have participated in the BMFA achievement scheme since it’s inception, for 2017 we are having an increased emphasis on member participation in the scheme and the club now has two new examiners to help achieve this.


The BMFA provide a very good website relating to the achievement scheme and there would be little point in repeating that information here, however we will list information that is relevant to the SMAC members.
