SAA statement from 12th March 2021


Due to the slight easing of COVID restrictions by the Scottish Government, the SAA are delighted to announce that as from Friday 12th March, R/C flying in groups of no more than 15 many recommence on the proviso that the below document entitled: COVID Sports Specific Guidelines for the Scottish Aeromodellers Association Rev 7-dd446 is fully adhered to. This is in draft form at the moment but I am happy that if the guidelines detailed in the document are followed, then we will be good to go. Any further relaxation of the restrictions will be communicated in the same way.


Enjoy and Happy Landings
