BMFA renewals

Hi,

I'm  not entirely sure if this question is allowed and/or relevant due to it being BMFA business and not BARCS.
I have sent an inquiry to the BMFA and I'm awaiting their response.

What I'd like to know is if there is any way I can add my CAA registration to my renewal.
I don't see an option to add my Operator ID or Flyer ID.

Hi SP

Just add it to your personal details on your BMFA account...the BMFA should already have done that :thumbsup:

If you mean here on the BARCS forum, just add it to where your BMFA number currently is - or substitute it.......:yes:

I have received my B M F A renewal till 31st December 2020, and now registered with CAA, but the reg number for the CAA, is not there. It would appear that this is going to be issued til New Year.

Find it strange that your BMFA number could not have been used for the CAA registration.

Your CAA ID should be sent to you via email.

I have both mine. Thanks PB, I’ll look into the “Personal Details” part of BMFA :)

My understanding having spoken (well emailed) with Dave Phipps, is that because of the exemption all BMFA members have till January 31st the CAA will be issuing the operator ID numbers in early Feb (to those who registered through the BMFA).  Also the number will be temporary (ie for 1 year only).  After the EASA regs are issued and CAA falls into line with them in June/July 2020 then the new ID number issued at the end of 2020 for 2021 season that new number will then stay with you each renewal thereafter.  So don't make this year's number too permanent on your models, as it will need to be changed for 2021 - but then will become permanently yours like your BMFA or driving licence number.

Hi SP

Goto BMFA  website  homepage- sign in

Goto Join/renewal

read the instructions there to get to https:/bmfa.azolve, com

You'll find your current details there, including your drone test pass certificate, if you've passed the BMFA drone test, of course

Hi SP

You can do either

Why not just change your BMFA number to your registration number?

I think we’re talking at cross purposes...

I'm wanting my CAA ID on my BMFA profile but can’t see where to put it.

I would take the BMFA test, wouldn't that be another £9 though?

I would like to take my "A" but I'm not in a club. Can't afford that either :(

BMFA online test is free no additional £9. I think you can take the A test at the BMFA centre and apart from paying for the day as a visitor flying I think you can take the test for free. You'd need to arrange I guess.  Not 100% sure on the latter but I think they run weekend workshops on certain dates were you can take the test.

Hi SP and all

My understanding was that the BMFA "A" test was designed primarily for powered fixed-wing aircraft

The BMFA used to have a glider test/qualification but it didn't flourish

Neither of the BMFA qualifications were aimed specifically at drones though

BARCS used to have a gliding proficiency award (Silver/Gold Hawk) but I don't know anyone that actually has that award

So, as I understand it, the CAA test is the only specific test for qualification and the BMFA "A" is an alternative, and not an essential test

But I’d like to. Then they know I don’t need to pass the BMFA test.

But I'm still puzzled about this.....why do you think the "the authorities" need to know you don't need to pass the BMFA test? By definition you must have taken the CAA test to not need to pass the BMFA test.....

I understand you want to put these numbers on your BMFA details but don't understand why you think it's necessary to do this:no:

Sorry to be a nuisance, but this intrigues me now

I have a Silent Flight 'B' which is a consequence of my holding the BARCS/BMFA Gold gliding achievement awards when the BMFA Achievement Scheme started.

PB,

I like to keep my ship in order. I would like to inform the BMFA (my governing body when I fly models) that I have passed a test and I'm legal to fly.

I'd like to do this just for my peace of mind.

I don't think that they care what your OP or FLY numbers are. 

You have registered directly with the CAA. You have done the CAA test. You don't need to bother with the exemptions. All that you have to do is put your OP number on your toys and go fly.
