The BMFA's strengths are its proven expertise and its membership. Without the backing of its clubs and members we could not have accomplished the many things that have given us national and international credibility and recognition. The sheer weight of numbers of model aircraft and drone fliers we represent has enabled us to be heard at the highest levels. Therefore, we require continuing support as without you the BMFA would not exist: your membership and club affiliation is important so that we can continue to represent the interests of model aircarft and drone flying in the UK.


United we have achieved and will continue to do so.


The promotion, protection, organisation and encouragement of safe and lawful recreational drone flying and development in all its aspects in the United Kingdom, through the medium of clubs and individual members; assistance and guidance to clubs or individuals; collaboration between members ; and co-operation on behalf of members  with the Civil Aviation Authority or other government departments and any other bodies and organisations in the United Kingdom and overseas.
