Silent Flight British National Championships @ BMFA Buckminster
Aug 24 all-day

N.B. Provisional date and location.
Further details will be posted once confirmed.

Silent Flight at the Nationals.

Although model flyers now have an almost unlimited number of radio frequencies available, it is impossible to fly all classes together on one site  at the Main Nationals, as the available airspace would be far too crowded for safety. For this reason, the Silent Flight Nationals has for many years been run at a second site during the Bank Holiday weekend. This years Silent Flight Nationals are to be provisionally held at BMFA Buckminster the National Centre for model flying, at Sewstern NG33 5RW, about 25 mins from RAF Barkston Heath. Visitors are welcome to watch the various Silent Flight competitions which will be taking place over the 3 days of the holiday weekend.

“Silent Flight” is a term which covers competitions where, although an electric motor is used to gain height in most categories, the vast majority of the flight is done in gliding mode and is therefore silent. Originally model gliders were towed aloft using a line, very much like a kite, then released to fly as a glider and while “towline glider” as a class still exists, most models are electric launched. Recent improvements in battery and motor technology have resulted in models as large as 4 metres wingspan being launched to 200 metres by a motor/battery/controller package weighing as little as 250gm.

The contests themselves take place on the same 3 days as the Main Nationals and comprise some 7 events. Usually 2 per day, flown simultaneously so there should always be something to watch and talk to the competitors about.
