BMFA Model Engine and Aircraft Auction 2 – coming soon to a computer near you.

Following on from the huge success of the recent Model Engine and Aircraft auction we have decided to stage a further auction early in the New Year in order to make the most effective use of the software licence.

The second auction will be taking place on Saturday the 7th of January and will be an on-line event only.

We are currently accepting lots for inclusion and the closing date for last submission of items for lotting is December the 16th.

Terms and conditions will be the same as for the previous auction and can be viewed at https://nationalcentre.bmfa.org/auction/terms  along with the full catalogue.

Auction proceedings will again be administered under the hammer of Bruce Collinson.

There will be no general viewing day, however, catalogue descriptions and images will be expanded to ensure appropriate information is provided, additionally, there will be limited opportunities to book appointments to view specific lots at the National Centre.

As previously we are able to store purchased items at the Centre and can also arrange postage/carriage of items (other than airframes/complete aircraft) to winning bidders.

Welcome

Introducing BMFA Buckminster

BMFA Buckminster is located on the Leicestershire/Lincolnshire border close to the towns of Melton Mowbray and Grantham and is the National Visitor Centre and Model Flying site of the British Model Flying Association (BMFA). See here for exact location and directions

The site occupies 43 acres of open and largely unobstructed countryside set within a traditional farming estate and presents an ideal location for the sport of model flying to take place.

The location represents an important facility for many of the model flying disciplines in the UK and will host an annual programme of events and competitions as well as the opportunity to just turn up and fly.

Additionally the location provides facilities for education through model aircraft and the opportunity for those who are thinking of trying model flying to participate in a “trial lesson experience”.

Facilities at BMFA Buckminster are continually evolving, take a look around this website to find information on the various activities and opportunities and for information on visiting the National Visitor Centre for Model Flying.  

We look forward to welcoming you at BMFA Buckminster.
