Welcome to the SWRCS Web Site.

We hope you find our site to be a useful, informative and interesting. We also hope that Club members will use the site as a first point of call for Club news, events, contacts and information.

There's also a special 'Members Area' where paid up SWRCS Members can access more Club information. This is a protected area and all members will be issued with Log In details when they join. Current members will receive log in details via our usual methods, e-mail etc.

We welcome SWRCS Members comments about the web site. Any suggestions for additions, changes or improvements you'd like to see would be appreciated so we can continue to develop the web site for the benefit of members.

Following limited lifting of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions the BMFA has now advised that we can return to flying in Wales from 1st June, BUT with strick conditions attached. To see the conditions we have put in place please CLICK HERE

May 2020
Please note that both the BMFA and the Welsh Government are still asking people in Wales to stay at home and not to make non-essential journeys. As soon as the Welsh Government start lifting restrictions we will endevour to reopen the flying field, but with any recommended social distancing requirements.

March 2020
Please note that both the BMFA and the Government are telling people to stay at home and not make non-essential journeys .Please follow these restrictions for the safety of you and others.

Members should continue to keep themselves updated on current government and NHS advice.  Please see https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response for the latest information.

Members are advised to follow the precautions provided by the NHS at all times details of which you can find here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

The CAA Drone & Model Aircraft Registration and Education Scheme (DMARES)
BMFA members with a BMFA achievement will automatically receive CAA Operator/Flyer IDs if the £9 registration fee is paid along with their BMFA renewal fee. Most members already pay the BMFA via the SWRCS and I presume they will pay the CAA fee through the club as well.  There will be a period of exemption (until the 31st of January) to allow for the time taken for administration. Note that the CAA will email your ID numbers to you so please make sure that your email address is showing on your membership details on the BMFA web site at: https://bmfa.azolve.com/Account.mvc/LogIn.

However, from the 30th November, those without a recognised BMFA Achievement should take the BMFA’s Registration Competency Certificate test at https://rcc.bmfa.uk/rcc before they fly.

April 2019
On Friday 25th April the CAA published a consultation (CAP1775) on their proposed charges for the registration of all operators of all unmanned aircraft between 250gm and 20 Kg– which includes the vast majority of our members - and also mandates online competency testing and age restrictions. The fee the CAA is proposing for registration is £16.50 per annum which we consider to be excessive and a barrier to participation.

Following our AGM the Committee has now changed a little. See HERE (Members Only)

We now have are own Face Book page. Click on the link on the left to find and follow us.
