The BMFA uses dates of birth, which the club does not keep, so it is awkward for us to update your details. If you contact me I can sort it for you.
The airfield now has a new owner, who wishes to keep it as it is for the foreseeable future. He is very much an aviation person, and we hope to have a long and fruitful association with him.
If you go up to Langar, please take any rubbish home with you, and pick up any you see lying around and take it too! Since the hedges have been cut back, loads of rubbish has come to light, keeping the place tidy is our major concern, as the new owner is keen to have a tidy airfield. For the last two Saturdays, teams have been picking litter and removing it.
Please note that the water is OFF at Langar until the risk of frost damage is past. This is to avoid the problems of last year when we had to do repairs and replace part of the pipework. This means the toilets have been locked and are not available.
The club has booked a Friday and Saturday fly-in at BMFA Buckminster on 12-13 July. Free for all Langar club members, there is a Midland Area Flyin on the Sunday to which we are invited, but there will be a charge for that.
Camping is available at £8 a night. This is going to be a cracking event at a fabulous venue, with close cropped grass and all facilities. More details nearer the date.
Flying at Langar continues, despite the cold! Here is Richards Spitfire.
If you have a key for the club hut, PLEASE make sure the lock is turned TWICE. This deadlocks it, we keep finding the lock only turned once. Also, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE clean up before you leave and put tops on coffee jars etc.
Jets are ok at Langar again. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A WORKING FIRE EXTINGUISHER WITH YOU.
Great weekend at the flyin!
Here is an interesting story from a US guy who visited Seagull Models factory. Bit of an eye opener, far from the sweat shop impression most of us get of far eastern model suppliers, this is a very professional organisation! Click here
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE!
A Riding for Disabled school is now operating at the far corner of the hedge at the back of the South field. Models doing reversals etc have been drifting over this area (and the road) and this has to stop. Please end all southerly circuits halfway down the field AT LEAST.
This is especially for large, fast aerobats and turbine powered models. This map shows the new NO FLY ZONE. Drifting over that area will cause problems for our neighbours and eventually the club. There is an abundance of room further North and East.
If the problem continues, we will have no choice but to move the pilots box further to the North, which inconveniences everyone, so please take notice, and also make sure anyone else flying is aware.
In order to bring us in line with the latest Data Protection laws, please read the ‘Privacy Notice’ link at the top of the page.

LANGARMAC IS FIXED WING ONLY. Gas turbine, electric, glow and petrol are all used at Langar.
