By now we should all have a valid competency certificate, either from the CAA or BMFA. If we are registering for an operators license via the BMFA, we have an exemption until the end of January to enable the BMFA to process our data and pass on the £9 registration fee. This process will be initiated by our member secretary John as part of renewing our BMFA membership and insurance.
In the December BMFA News that recently arrived, there is an A5 sized pamphlet explaining various exemptions including the delayed registration date for BMFA members. This pamphlet also says that we should carry this, our competency certificate and BMFA membership detail when we go flying.
