BRMFC Annual Public Display, 25 February 2018

(Ignore date below)

BRMFC stages an annual public flying display normally on the first Sunday in April (but possibly in late March if it would coincide with Easter) starting at 10.00AM and running through to around 3.30PM. (Its always best to try and get there before midday.) Grab the latest advertising flyer and pilot invitation. We try to have the latest ones available at least a couple of months before the event. (If the file date displayed in the tooltip when you hover over the links is for last year then the file is yet to be updated.)

Do yourself a favour and mark the date of our next display on your calendar. See the Events Calendar for the date of our next display.

This is where you get an opportunity to see a vast array of different types of radio controlled model aircraft. The types of models on display varies but usually includes military aircraft from WW1, WW2 and post WW2, civilian aircraft, multi engined and sometimes we manage to have helicopters.

To give the kids some extra entertainment we do two or three lolly drops during the day which has proven to be very popular. A canteen with hot food and hot/cold drinks is available all day at modest prices. (Because we sell food to the public a temporary food permit is obtained from the Moorabool Shire Council.)

We invite modelers from around the state to help the local members put on the flying display. Our members then reciprocate throughout the year to help other clubs put on their own displays.

The event is promoted to the general public throughout the Ballarat region, however our limited resources don't allow us to advertise it to the extent that we would like. We do thank the local media organizations for the coverage that they provide for community events such as ours.

We use this event to promote aeromodelling in the hope that it will attract people to the sport/hobby. It's quite a feeling of achievement to assemble or build your own model aircraft then be able to take it off fly it around and land it back on the runway. It doesn't matter how many times you do it, it still gives you a buzz.

To assist with the preparation of the event we ask pilots who intend to fly to send an email to the Display Director indicating that you intend to enter. As an incentive for other modellers to participate, we always have some give aways, prizes and/or trophies.
