News FlashCAP 1763
As you will all hopefully be aware CAP 1763 published last Wednesday has left very little time before it's implementation date of 13th March for clubs with flying fields within, or very close to, Flight Restriction Zones to obtain formal written permission to fly models within such zones.
Please find attached, hot off the press a guidance document that Peter Willis, Dave Phipps and Andy Symons have pulled together to assist clubs who may find themselves in this situation. This document will be going live on the BMFA website very shortly but given the urgency for any clubs impacted by the new regulation thought it would be useful to share PDQ.
