Wirral Radio Control Flying Society is a BMFA affiliated club No 0268.
BMFA membership is a requirement for all WRCFS members.
As from30th November 2019 a legal requirement is needed to operate unmanned aircraft and drones.
- Members will be exempted from registering as Operators on the 30th November and can register instead as part of the BMFA’s membership renewal process (ideally by the end of January 2020).
- Registering as an Operator through the BMFA will be a specific ‘opt-in’ for members and the CAA will only receive information for those members who have given consent by ‘opting in’ and paid the CAA fee.
