BMAA Spamfield is back on the agenda for 2015
with a move back to its traditional timing of June.
For those of you who know and love Spamfield,
the traditional elements will all be there: the huge, friendly airfield , over
water flights, its trademark social atmosphere, flights around the Island, easy
access to Sandown and the beach, and Mogas and supplies in the supermarket only

Show and Tell
Show and Tell is an event designed to introduce fliers to
the concept of microlight competition flying but in a non-competitive
environment. Show and Tell 2015 will take place on the Saturday of Spamfield
(weather permitting of course) and will include an overview of the BMAA
National Championships and what to expect if you were to enter one of the many
competition weekends. Following an interactive session in the morning with
presentations from current competition pilots, a short navex can be flown with gps
loggers to provide analysis of your flight.
In the evening there will be a demonstration of precision
landings in both Fixed & Flex wing microlights by World Champions Paul
Dewhurst and Rob Grimwood (and possibly some other experts),and if the conditions
permit, those of you interested may also be able to give it ago.
If you fancy learning a little more about what the
compers do, indicate your interest when registering for Spamfield. Closer to
the day, you will receive additional information regarding the Show and Tell
aspects of the weekend. Be quick though as interest is already very high which
means we may have to limit the navex with loggers on a first come first served
