    JMA BRUNTINGTHORPE - APRIL 22/23

    Posted by Jamie on 2017-01-25 19:53:25 UTC

    A meeting at Bruntingthorpe airfield in Leicester (LE17 5QS) has been arranged for the weekend of April 22/23 2017. Bruntingthorpe is famous for its Cold war jets days which see legendary British heavy metal of the cold war era blasting down the runway to the delight of the public. The JMA is very grateful to Ian Wilde for his help in getting this meeting off the ground and Roger Kilbey for visiting the site to discuss our requirements with the airfield manager.

    More details regarding this meeting will be released as we receive them. For those wishing to attend, please book in with JMA Secretary Roger Kilbey (roger.kilbey@btinternet.com). There will be no entry on the day due to the security requirements of the airfield, you will need to pre book with Roger.

    JMA SCULTHORPE - SEPTEMBER 30/OCTOBER 1 - PROVISIONAL DATE ONLY

    Posted by Jamie on 2017-01-23 21:58:19 UTC


    THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO ALL JET FLYERS, NOT JUST JMA MEMBERS.

    Last year the JMA revisited MOD Sculthorpe (NR21 7RF) in Norfolk, this was quite a short notice event due to the nature of the booking process for this airfield. Last years event was open to all jet flyers, this years event will also be open to all. BMFA insurance, or equivalent will be required as usual.

    The JMA is planning a return to Sculthorpe in 2017 and a provisional date of September 30/October 1 has been requested. This date will not be confirmed until a few weeks before the event, with this in mind the committee has taken the decision to release this date so that those that would like to attend can plan accordingly. The date is not expected to be changed, but given that it is a provisional date only, it would be better for those booking accommodation to make a 'flexi' booking to enable cancellation if required.

    As soon as we have more details they will be posted here and on the JMA Facebook page and website 'Jet only events' forum board.

    JMA TOP GUN - MAY 20/21 2017

    Posted by Jamie on 2017-01-12 22:06:10 UTC

    Pat Barnes and Pete Disney have again arranged the date for JMA TOPGUN, it will take place over the weekend of May 20/21 2017. For those who are thinking of attending but have not been before, the event is organised by the JMA and the Royal Navy Model Aircraft Association and is held at Royal Naval Air Station Merryfield which is situated in the heart of the Somerset countryside, it is a satellite airfield to the main air station at nearby RNAS Yeovilton.

    It is a perfect venue for a jet meeting as anyone who has attended previous events would testify. It is an aviation training area for the resident squadrons at Yeovilton as well as many visiting aircraft. The only major building on the site is the control tower which is in the no fly zone anyway, the only obstacle you have to avoid is the deck! There is plenty of camping, hotels/B&B's in the area so accomodation will not be a problem if you are wanting to come for the whole weekend. The airfield is easily accessible and is only 10 miles from junction 25 of the M5 and a stones throw from the A303. Bookings for this event will not be taken after Friday May 5 to satisfy the security requirements stipulated by the MOD guard service.

    The Topgun part of the weekend will be held on the Sunday only, as before this will not impact on the flying as there will be no slots or static judging and is a flying only event. As before a donation will be made to Royal Naval Benevolent trust
