PANDAS BMFA Flying Site Permit to Fly over 7.5kgs Aircraft above 400 feet (up to 1400 feet).

I have successfully applied for and obtained a permanent flying site permit to allow aircraft weighing over 7.5kgs and up to 25kgs to fly above 400 feet at the PANDAS flying field (up to 1400 feet). The permit is issued by the BMFA under the terms of the new Article 16 legislation. Permit link below:

The permit has to be reviewed annually and I am responsible for ensuring the club complies with the permit conditions.

Aircraft weighing between 7.5kgs and 25kgs can fly up to 1400 feet, 7 days a week between the hours of 0900 to 2100.

As an interim measure until the site is permanently notified on Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP), we also have a NOTAM in place.

You can check the NOTAM on the below website link. If you untick all the boxes on the NOTAM details section (to the right) apart from the top one ‘Show navigation warnings’ and then zoom in, it easier to find the NOTAM.

Please remember that to fly any aircraft weighing over 7.5kgs or any turbine aircraft at the PANDAS flying site, you must hold a BMFA ‘B’ certificate and have a competent observer whilst flying.
