Aero Linx: British Model Flying Association The BMFA is the National Governing Body for the sport of model flying. Its aims are to promote, protect, organise and encourage model flying within the UK. Typically there are around 780 affiliated clubs and a combined membership of over 36,000 members, all of whom have entered a partnership to ensure that model fliers have a voice and their rights are recognised by the authorities. The mandate for the BMFA to do this comes from the Royal Aero Club, dating back to 1922, the Civil Aviation Authority and the UK Sports councils. The BMFA also represents the UK in the international forum through its recognition by the Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI) and its model flying sub committee, Commission Internationale d'Aeromodelisme (CIAM).

Aero-News: Quote of the Day (07.12.20)

"We regret having this decision to make and believe that with safety as our focus in all matters of our sport, to continue without knowing what mid-September will bring in terms of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic would be irresponsible. The “go/no go” date was moved ahead because we believe that IAC members deserve to know as early as possible so that they can make other plans with family, business, and school..." Source: IAC President, Robert Armstrong, commenting as the IAC Board of Directors met by teleconference on Friday, 10 July 2020, to discuss the 2020 U.S. National Aerobatic Championships scheduled to be held in Salina, Kansas, 20-24 September 2020. After much research, debate, and discussion with City of Salina officials and EAA leadership, the IAC Board of Directors has determined that it will be in the best interest of the safety of all who attend the U.S. Nationals that this premier event is cancelled for 2020.

Classic Aero-TV: Avilution at Oshkosh 2019-Innovating Next-Gen Avionics Strategy

From 2019: Company Partners With Multiple Aircraft Manufactures For OEM Avionics

Avilution is re-thinking the way avionics panels are presented using an innovative software-driven system to display information that is configurable by the pilot. Company founder and CEO Mark Spencer told Aero-TV at AirVenture 2019 that Avilution approaches avionics as a software problem rather than as a hardware problem, which gives them a lot of flexibility and allows them to bring products to market more quickly than a more traditional approach. Avilution came to the notice of many in the industry a few years ago with their unconventional ‘UnPanel’ that made its debut in the Zenith CH750 Super Duty STOL airplane.
