The BMFA members handbook is an essential reference book for all model fliers. Not only does it give details on the British Model Flying Association, it includes a comprehensive safety code drawn up from the legal obligations all model fliers have to meet, such as Air Navigation Order Articles 55 and 56, Civil Air Procedure 658, the DOE Noise Code and the Environment Act. It also includes measures and advice on accident prevention and how to avoid the many pitfalls that can befall model aircraft fliers.

The independent model press have stated it to be essential reading and should be read from cover to cover.

The Members' Handbook is issued individually to every member and is reviewed annually, with addendum sheets being issued if required. It is re-issued approximately every 3 years. Click on the Handbook below to download the 2010 members handbook.
