|Brighouse Model Aircraft Club|
At the last monthly committee meeting (June) issues revolving around landing and taking off, when the wind is between southerly and south westerly, were discussed. The discussion centered round safety issues involved in taking off and landing towards the flight line and pits. The conclusion was that when the wind is in that direction, both the flight line and pits should be moved. By way of explanation I have produced an image which hopefully will explain the situation in order to see it or download it click here. If you have any queries please contact a member of the committee for clarification.
A First Aid kit is now located in the bin.
If you use any items in it please let the Safety Officer know so that they can be replaced.
One of our members mentioned that in the event that he needed to call the emergency services he didn't know the exact address.
Brighouse Model Aircraft Club Location for Emergency Services
See location plan below.
Cars are normally parked in the area shown below (to the left of the gate).
Please don't drive into the field. Go directly to the parking area.
If you decide not to park on the field the
committee asks all members to act responsibly and to park on the main road (Highmoor La / Walton La) taking care NOT to block the slip road access to Jay House Lane.
We welcome non-members to watch the flying or just to talk about the hobby. Visiting B.M.F.A. members
are welcome to fly with us, but please only when a Brighouse member is present and with the members approval.
The site is open 7 days a week and although members may be present on any given day, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons
and Sundays appear to be the most popular. Dry, warm days with light winds are preferred.

We do not fly over or close i.e. 50 metres to the cottages down Jayhouse Lane and keep the revs down as much as possible.
