The fly-in was open to all RC helicopter pilots, including those who are not members of Beelsby Model Flying Club (though BMFA insurance was required).

In total, 12 pilots attended the fly-in, of mixed abilities. Some marked progression was seen in a few of the pilots from last year this year. Some of the more experienced pilots freely and tactfully passed on advice and tips which is very much in the spirit of the funfly.

Rain fell from 0700 until about 1000. After that it was overcast with a few sunny spells and wind speeds of 8 to 10 mph gusting 15 mph.

Overall, the fly in was successful and positive feedback was received from those who attended. The club hopes to host another helicopter fly-in in 2020; we’ll book better weather next year!
