Fees For SWRCS Membership 2024
(Now Due)

This year the BMFA has raised its fees by £5.  The committee has decided that SWRCS fees should also be increased by £3. An application form can be found HERE.

Please note that for seniors there is an extra £10 charge for CAA registration. This is now the responsibility of each member to pay (See below).

The BMFA will no longer accept the CAA Operator fee if there is more than 28 days to expiry. It is now the members responsibility to register for and to pay at the appropriate time. Your registration details can be found on the CAA website where you can also pay your renewal or register if you are new to the hobby: https://register-drones.caa.co.uk/my-registration You can also pay via the BMFA Portal: https://bmfa.justgo.com/Account.mvc/login

Don’t forget that you are not insured after the 31st of December until we receive your membership fee.  Also, don’t forget you get a £5 discount (£3 for juniors) if I receive the fee before the 10th of January.  (As shown on the the renewal form.)

*NB Amounts marked * include a discount given only if the fee is received by the membership secretary by the 10th of January 2024.

Please also note that your 2024 insurance is not effective until the club receives your payment.

Please take careful note of the club rules, especially the noise limit and the areas you are not allowed to fly, most importantly near the main road, THE HOUSE, the industrial estate and over the go-kart track.

With flying hours back to normal, please keep noise to a minimum. Remember: One complaint can be all it takes to close a flying site. Noise measurements will be made from time to time during the year to check how the club is progressing in its aim to be as 'green' as possible..
