Late Payment - Membership renewal after 30th December will be allowed at the Committee’s discretion, if there are extenuating circumstances. If no such circumstances exist, the member will have forfeited his/her membership and will have to re-apply for membership under the terms for a new member.

BMFA, SAA or LMA Insurance is mandatory for our Club. BMFA or SAA insurance can be obtained through CVFMAC. Please note that insurance from any other organisation is not sufficient, you must be a member of the BMFA, SAA or LMA. This is a condition of our club's affiliation.
It is also necessary for any person who flies at the site as a guest to have BMFA, SAA or LMA insurance, again any other insurance is not acceptable.
In addition, all rates are discounted towards the end of the year to reflect the reduced BMFA, SAA or LMA rates.
