This application process may be used to apply for a permit for a model flying display. This may include permission to operate model aircraft (excluding multi-rotor aircraft) weighing more than 7.5Kg at heights above 400ft as part of ‘one off’ public displays.
All model aircraft displays must be notified to other airspace users via a NOTAM, unless they are taking place on a permanently notified site covered by a BMFA Site Permit (and an LMA Permit if operating over 25Kg aircraft).
All flying must be conducted within the terms of the BMFA’s Article 16 Authorisation. Permit requests for displays featuring aircraft with MTOM’s exceeding 25Kg will be referred to the LMA, as a LMA Display Permit will also be required. Over 25Kg aircraft must have an individual operational authorisation and be operated in compliance with the LMA’s Article 16 Authorisation.
