The GBRCAA is the specialist body appointed by the BMFA, to organise precision aerobatic competitions (F3A & F3P) to the international rules of the FAI.
The First objective of the GBRCAA is:
“To promote & encourage the building & safe flying of aerobatic radio-controlled powered model aircraft”.
The GBRCAA caters for all fliers interested in precision aerobatics, using a series of schedules which can be flown by pilots of all abilities. There are 5 published schedules: Clubman, Intermediate, Masters, FAI Preliminary & FAI Finals.
Domestic competitions cater from the raw beginner to the most proficient pilots amongst us. Whatever the level, we try to make competitions very friendly, where we can all enjoy our flying being judged (by keen & well-trained eyes) & where help & advice is always freely available.
The entry level Clubman schedule can be flown with almost any model that can do a loop & a roll, thus allowing you to enter a competition & get the feel of proceedings at an early stage. Currently you only need a BMFA A certificate (or national equivalent) to enter GBRCAA Clubman & Intermediate competitions.
There are various introductory events run throughout the year, by both the GBRCAA & the BMFA. We look forward to meeting new & prospective members at any event.
