DDMAC 2018 Easter Fly-In – CANCELLED

This event is cancelled. The weather for Easter Monday is not looking good. The forecast is for heavy rain and sleet accompanied by strong winds. I have therefore decided there is little prospect, of being able to hold this event.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

DDMAC Membership Secretary.

On Monday 2nd April 2018 (Easter Monday), we are holding an informal Fly-In down at the DDMAC flying field.
The event will commence at 11.00am (gates open from 10.30am).

Time Until This Event

You are welcome to come along and fly any type aircraft (fixed wing, helicopter or multi rotor) and enjoy the day.
We will also hold our ETA event (details below) and a few other ad hoc events during the day.

ETA Fixed Wing, Helicopters & Multi Rotor
Draw a time from a hat (can be anything from 90 to 150 seconds). Flyer has to take off and land, trying to land in a time, as near as possible to the time drawn from the hat. Winner is the pilot who lands the nearest to their time. Time starts from when the wheels or skids (helicopters / multi rotor) leave the ground and ends when they wheels/skids touch back down (no transmitter timers or watches allowed).

All pilots will be briefed, as they arrive regarding the flying field rules and transmitter control. If you have any questions, please ask. The safety of everyone is paramount.

Tea & Coffee will be available in the club cabin throughout the day.
We will be looking to serve bacon and sausage sandwiches around mid-day.
There will be a charity donation jar on the prize table. Any donations will be gratefully received and will go to the clubs nominated charity for the year, Kirkwood Hospice.

Local BMFA Northern area club members, are welcome to join us for the day.

We do have a limit of no models over 7 Kilograms and a noise limit of no models over 82 decibels measured at 7 metres.

If you require any more information or details, please contact
