You may well say that turbine helicopters are covered, but the policy doesn't say that, it does say no jets
Maybe the policy should read:
ALL forms of helicopter irrespective of power plant, under 20 kilos Then I would be happy.
Insurance companies if they have got an out they will take it.

earlier you said no fast jets are allowed! so please do tell what is the discription of a fast jet , because last time i looked im sure my turbine was going fast
and perhaps i missed it, what are the advantages over the bmfa?
and prideing yourself on concentrating on being a heli specific organization would it not send out a better signal and be a better investment if your insurance did not cover fixed wing flying and put the funds that covered that section towards covering helis over 20kg??

I'm very much aware that many heli pilots also fly fixed wing hence the cover required must cover both disciplines within reason upto 20kg is enough and no need to cover rockets and jets would have cost more than was warranted.

Listen as I've said its a choice that people can have - I'll happily let others make there choice.

Regardless if you think its not warranted or necessary to have the RCHA we are here and open - I've made my choice and others are making there's so lets respect the obvious fact that your not a fan of the RCHA - I've had plenty of resistance to it and I'm happy to keep on going with it that's my choice to continue the journey.

time will tell i supose.

As its time to get new insurance i thought i would get the cheapest !!! ( can't be any worse than my house insurance) .

but, i fly at several sites and not one of them will allow anything but BMFA.

maybe in the future it will work but for now its not an option for me.

Good luck with this but I do feel you have missed the boat as all insurances are due on Jan 1st. When and where are you going to answer the questions posed? people will get ticked off with waiting. There is precious little on here and even less information on your website. Come on and get moving get the information out there and let people know what they can expect for their money, it's not just about insurance.

rcha/staurt did say contact us here (at the rcha website which was free advertising) (when he says us i think he meant him?) but when you go there to ask a question you have to leave all your details which to be honest i shouldnt have to give. i think he just came on the forum to have a snap, he hasnt answered any questions or been of help, for someone thats setting up an organization if he cant answer simple question directly how do you expect him/them to help deal with things in the real world like helping clubs with legal matters and planning permission.

We have more information coming out soon - we have been working daily on the handbook and schools programme.

I understand peoples need for info and to save me having to trawl the net all over its easier for four simple fields to be completed and enabling at the same time to make a FAQ.

If your especially desperate for information then please feel free to visit another uk forum.

As an example we confirmed yesterday that cover does inc ROI (Republic of Ireland). Yes its not all about the insurance - but timing meant people wanted this first and foremost, but we have other things to do at the same time. Rome wasn't built in a day.......

or it would be a lot more simpler if you copied and pasted my question from above rather than me haveing to give out my details.
and plus this is a forum questions asked on here should have the answers posted on here thats how forums work.
If your especially desperate for information then please feel free to visit another uk forum.
you mean a forum where your the admin? this forum is good enough for me, youve joined it and posted on it, if you can reply to questions on that forum then surely you can reply to questions on this forum, if you cant reply to questions on this forum perhaps you shouldlnt of posted here in the first place. perhaps you should ask mark to remove your user name and stop posting as rcha

I've already as stated Darren said that turbine helicopters are covered upto 20kg. If you have any further questions then feel free to use the form - I only posted as I had made a comparison chart to help people understand.

Now your on some kind of personal attack mode.....if I've offended you as I said I apologies but I have a mountain of things to do with the help of a few others and as usual not enough hours in the day - so a simple form helps to make it easier.

but as turbinmaster stated
You may well say that turbine helicopters are covered, but the policy doesn't say that, it does say no jets
the policy says no fast jets but does not define what a fast jet is, if i made a claim im sure the insurance company would turn round and say your not covered. what the policy says and how you interprit the policy may be two difrent things.
and no this isnt personal im asking questions which you obviosly are avoiding as you manage to reply to post just not answer questions?

Notice to event organisers and club officials – RCHA insurance

Following the recent formation of the Radio Control Helicopter Association we have been contacted by a number of BMFA club committees and event organisers enquiring whether they should accept RCHA membership for insurance purposes at their club or event.

Following investigation into this matter we advise that at this time RCHA insurance is not recognised due to the level and scope of cover provided under the terms of the policy.

Should a member of the RCHA wish to fly at your event or club site then it is recommended that they become either full or temporary members of the BMFA for insurance purposes.

5th February 2010

Just got from BMFA website
