Membership Fees

Fees for 2022

Club Subscriptions are due by 1st January of each year. Full details of current subscription costs can be found towards the bottom of this page.


BMFA Membership

As well as club membership we can facilitate the renewal of your BMFA membership (a requirement for membership). These are currently:

BMFA Fees: Seniors £40 a year, Juniors £18 a year.

BMFA Family Partners fees: £27 and Family Juniors £14


Training Costs

For those wishing to be trained using the club equipment a training equipment maintenance /replacement charge will be made – see below (Please see the learning to fly section)

It has been decided by the Committee to make no increase this year to the club membership fees.  However, the club will continue with the improvements of our facilities as planned.

The table below shows the cost of a full year’s subscription. New members joining part way through the year will receive a pro rata refund when they renew at the end of the year.

As the club is affiliated to the BMFA all members must have BMFA membership, so this cost should be added if you are not already a member.

The BMFA fees can either be paid directly to the BMFA or through the club.  The £9 CAA ‘drone’ Registration Fees, now required by law (see elsewhere on the website), can also be paid directly to the CAA or through the BMFA (directly with them or through the club) so the overall fees have several combinations.  Choose the appropriate method you wish to use for payment from the table below to determine the fees payable to the club.

Our Treasurer, Andy Harding, will be sending out emails to all current members and informing those who joined during the current year their pro-rata’d rate and giving the bank details for bank transfers

For those joining the club there is a one-off joining fee – Seniors: £25.00    Juniors: £10

Training equipment maintenance /replacement charge (for those wishing to use club equipment to learn) :-

Juniors      Year 1 £25, Year 2 £50

Seniors       Year 1 £50, Year 2 £100
