What is the BMAA?
The British Microlight Aircraft Association looks after the interests of microlight pilots and enthusiasts in the UK. It is an organisation approved by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Its aims are to further the sport of microlight aviation, keep flying costs down to a minimum for its members and to represent them in national and international matters relating to our sport.
The BMAA is the Royal Aero Club's nominated delegate in all matters related to microlight aviation to the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) which controls all aviation sporting activities worldwide and to Europe Airsports which defends the interests of sport aviation in Europe
A permanent staff, headed by a Chief Executive and based in Deddington in Oxfordshire, take care of the day to day running of the association. Its activities are steered by a voluntary Council, members of which are elected for three year terms at Annual General Meetings.
The BMAA publishes Microlight Flying, a monthly magazine covering most of the important aspects of flying and operating microlights, including competition news, flight reports, technical articles, and a classified section where members can advertise. A National Championship series of competitions is organised every year by the association; many pilots participate simply for the fun of it and to improve their pilot skills at the same time; top performing pilots are selected to represent the UK in European and World Championships.
Over the last 10 years the UK team has been remarkably successful at the highest level. You can read of some of our successes in our History of Microlight Aviation section. There are a large number of BMAA recognised clubs throughout the UK which organise both national and local flying and social events, helping to keep everyone in touch with their favourite pastime - Flying Microlights! The best way to find out more about the sport is to call the secretary of your local club and go along to their next meeting. Who knows, someone might offer you a ride!
