What's New

news The 2021 AGM will be held at 8 pm on Tuesday 7th Dec at the Aviator Hotel, Sywell.

Indoor flying restarting - see the "Indoor Flying" page for details

The IC Fun-Fly was held on Sunday 19th Sept. The overall winner was Bob Nicholson. Full results on the comps page and pics in the gallery.


The committe has decided that from August the field will be open as normal and the track and trace (signing in and out) is no longer required. Other Covid 19 precautions are at the discression of the individual member


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

* The code to the flying field gate was changed on 1st January every year. The new code is on the membership card. The code to the electric forest gate (when it's working) or a combination lock when fitted, remains unchanged. Any questions contact a member of the committee or click here to e-mail.


Only those that have indicated that they would like to be on our mailing list will receive update e-mails from NVA - contact the webmaster if you have any questions.

*A privacy policy has been incorporated into the club's constitution in order to comply with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) legislation. This policy can be found on the "Rules" page and scrolling down to Section 5.

*Para 3.16 has been added to the constitution/rules document. This notes that members must comply with the CAA registration requirements. This addition was passed unanimously by member vote at the 2019 AGM *Reminder - Only paid-up members and those registered as operators with the CAA are insured.

The 2021 membership form can be downloaded here.

* No member (fixed wing or helicopter) should fly unsupervised unless they hold at least a BMFA "A" certificate . Members wishing to take the relevant test should contact Andy Hibbert or Dave Harbour to arrange a suitable time with an examiner.
