Dear BMFA Member

CAA Registration

CAA Operator ID registration numbers for those who register with the CAA through the BMFA will be emailed directly from the CAA early in February. You are exempt from the requirement to have one up to that point as a BMFA member. Your CAA registration will last for 12 months from when your Operator ID arrives, your Operator ID is the number you should display on your aircraft.
