*****

Those wishing to renew their membership can do so by bank transfer. The 2023 fees can be found on the 2023 membership application form which can be downloaded by clicking on the moving banner above.

- The 2022 AGM was held on 6th Dec at the Aviator Hotel Sywell - 15 members attended (including the committee). The club fees for 2023 were approved - these can be found on the 2023 Membership Application Form by clicking on the moving banner above. Members renewing their membership need not send an application form unless contact details have changed.

- Provisional competition dates for 2023 have been added to the "Competitions" page. If  any members espies any "date-clashes" I have missed, please let me know. Dates will be confirmed during January 2023.

****

Please note that your new (very long) CAA opertor number must be displayed on all models but the CAA has confirmed that this new number will NOT be changed every year. The CAA regrets that this number is so long but it is regulated by an EU directive that the UK (DoT) agreed adopt since the UK formally left the EU. (if it is any consolation, the guy from the CAA also thinks the length of the number is daft)

****

- By now all members should have received their CAA operator ID number. No model should take to the air without this number on the aircraft is accordance with the CAA's requirements. These can be found here
