Update – What happens next – Midland area RMFC event

UPDATE – With 12 days to go before our talk pie and pea budget has had to be increased !!!


It’s been a great days flying when suddenly there’s a thud followed by a scream


Panic takes over but should it?

How bad is it?

What do you do next?

Has your club been proactive for such a situation?

First aid pack available?

BMFA suggest don’t fly on your own so help could be available


This talk is about a having a plan for any situation that may occur on the field and what members can do to help. Our speaker  retired Dr.Richard Wilkins ( Retford member ) will cover how a club can help members with knowledge of what to do next ,basic first aid and what to do if someone has a cardiac arrest, in both cases time is a key factor. Andy Simonds will be on handed to answer any BMFA related questions after the talk.

The BMFA news has covered articles on a number of serious incidents involving both electric and powered aircraft.

“The initiative being run by the Midland area with Retford Model Flying Club to provide a Basic Field First Aid course for members is a great example of how clubs and the BMFA Areas can support members.


The club are in a fortunate position in having a retired doctor within the membership who is running the course, also the offer idea of providing a free supper is a good incentive to get members together.

Hopefully other clubs will pick up on the idea and do something similar.

Well done to the Retford MFC Committee.”
