Achievement Scheme Workshop – Newmarket MFC @ Newmarket MFC
May 18 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

East Anglia Area

Cordially invite

All Area and Club Examiners, Instructors and potential Test Candidates

 to a

Fixed Wing ‘A’ and ‘B’ Instructor & Examiner Workshop

Kindly hosted by Newmarket MFC

(West Row site near RAF Mildenhall)

Saturday 19th May 2019, registration from 9 am

To reserve your place go to https://bmfa.azolve.com/workbench/public/events?ref=66D5919F010529F249935D2C569B36D0C52E8CB6

Directions to the site will be sent to all attendees nearer the time.  Please book-in early as the numbers will be limited to about 20.

The Workshop is being held in support of the BMFA Achievement Scheme and is designed to help Instructors & Examiners to improve consistency.  25 pilots attended the last workshop and rated the usefulness and enjoyment of the day at 97%!  Over 70% had all their questions about the tests answered on the day.

The purpose is to allow Pilots, Instructors and Examiners the opportunity to gain experience, share information and discuss the requirements of the Fixed Wing ‘A’ and ‘B’ tests in a relaxed and informal environment.  Delegates will be asked to ‘score’ the aspects of the mock tests, being pre-flight checks, from the pits to the take-off point, all of the elements of the flight, the retrieval and the post-flight checks – note:  the demo flights will have various deliberate errors incorporated.

 

Following this, there will be a group critique of the test in which the Demonstration Pilot will participate.  At the conclusion of each section, the Demonstration Pilot will fly the schedule to the required standards.

 

Refreshments and barbecue will be running from about 10.30 until we run out of food.

For further details, contact the Event Organiser, Phil Gutteridge, East Anglia Achievement Scheme Co-Ordinator on phil@phisquaredservices.co.uk or 07810 547 406
