DELTA HAWKS FLYING DISPLAYS 2017
The following displays are proposed and BMFA insurance cover will be obtained. All members are invited to attend. Those without Certs can have a go on the club trainer. The venues are festivals, galas together with fly-ins at our Packington Field. DHMFC flyers and their immediate families will be allowed free entry.
Either April 2nd or April 9th depending on weather
Flying takes place at our Packington site. All club members are invited to fly warbirds only. Free Barbecue and soft drinks.
MOIRA CANAL FESTIVAL
May 27th and 28th
We are flying on the football field at the above on the Saturday. There is a large house being built in the next field that we usually overfly - that area is now out of bounds. So, what we fly has to be able to stay within the boundary of the sports field. The BMFA have approved us to fly there provided the models flown suit the area that we have available.
If you have an electric fixed wing that can be flown within the area of our take-off and landing patch at Packington then that will be suitable otherwise it will be helicopters and multi-rotors. However, if you have a decent fixed wing that you would like to provide as a static display then please come along.
On Sunday there will be a national quad racing event that you can come along to if you wish.
