The County Council have agreed a new club licence which gives new start times for IC powered aircraft as 9:30am (Monday to Friday) and 10:30am (Saturday and Sunday)
The club have now reached a new 3 year agreement with Newcastle Air Traffic Control (ATC).
Blyth kite festival will take place at the adjacent field to our strip (rugby pitches) from the 30th April to the 2nd May 2016. The organisers have assured us that all kite flyers will be aware of the boundaries with our club and there will be no flying of kites within our area. However, BVRMC members are reminded about our rule number 5 (not overflying other activities) and pilots should therefore ensure a good distance of separation exists between model aircraft and the kite festival. Blyth Valley Radio Model Club wish the organisers of the kite festival a very successful event.
Members should be aware that Northumberland County Council only permit flying at Meggies Burn by Members of BVRMC. In addition, the only permitted flying area authorised by the Council is the flying site currently used. The Council do not allow flying anywhere else.
A big thank you to all Members who attended subs night. Together with members paying by direct debit we have already renewed 102 members for the 2016 season.
Individual renewal letters for 2016 were emailed/posted to all members on 27th November 2015. If you have not received yours please contact us via the contact form below.
The BMFA have announced their subs for 2016. They have agreed a £1 increase on Senior and Family Partners. Junior subs have been frozen. This makes combined BVRMC and BMFA membership for 2016 as Senior £45 and Junior £17. (From 2016 BVRMC will not charge club subs for Junior members)
If you attend the monthly Churchill indoor fly-in, please note the organisers have been in touch to advise the event has been cancelled until further notice.

Members should note that the Tour of Britain cycle event will be taking place at Blyth on Wednesday 9th September 2015 (between 1pm and 4pm) It is likely that the links road will be closed during this time and access into and out of the field may not be possible.
On 16th August 2015 a member was found to be flying his model over the corn field behind the club car parking area. This was a blatant infringement of club rule number 5 and puts the tenure of our site in jeopardy for all other club members. The member in question has been spoken to regarding his actions and all members should be advised that the Club will not tolerate any further blatant infringement of rules by any member.
Many congratulations to Berry Assadian who won the draw at the May 2015 club meeting for a weeks holiday at the RC Hotel in Corfu.
