A season ticket is a positive way of supporting the BMFA National Flying Site and Visitor Centre Project as well as attracting those who are intending to be regular users of BMFA Buckminster.
The initial rates also reflect the fact that the site will open part way through the year and the early months will see reduced facilities until the runway seeding becomes established.
The season ticked should be considered as a ‘midweek flyers ticket’, The price for 2017 is based on the equivalent of 10 weekday permits (at £6.00 each) however there will be a small number of additional weekends that will be listed as general sport-flying weekends, these will also be available to season ticket holders, the season ticket also includes evening permits (usual price £4.00).
Season ticket holders will also be entitled to half price entry to the BMFA Buckminster Summer Air Display and Trade Show (July 29th/30th).
In addition to this it is likely that a small number of midweek days that will be unavailable due to pre booked events, these will be notified through the website as part of the continuous ‘status update’
