Tuition

Tuition takes place at our Newground site aims to encourage members to improve their standard of flying and safety, and to prove that standard to one of our Examiners. The scheme is run by the BMFA as a National Scheme.

The club also has a ‘Solo’ status that allows flyers to fly unassisted at the field and requires proof of competent flying to an examiner.
