New Committee Members

by Thomas Greer

We are pleased to announce the addition of four supporting committee members;

  • Richard, richard@bfpvra.org – ‘I am joining to help the hobby progress and help with the league table’
  • Warren, warrenj@bfpvra.org – ‘I am joining to help improve the sports growth in the UK. We have some of the world’s best pilots and should support their growth, and support new pilots to come into the sport’
  • Andrew, andrew@bfpvra.org – ‘I am joining to support the community and help the great atmosphere grow with everything else’
  • Craig, craig@bfpvra.org – ‘I am joining to help the UK pilots be the best they can be, from novice to pro. Being part of the BFPVRA I can help unify the UK FPV pilots and make sure that they will always the strongest and fastest FPV pilots in the world.’

These supporting committee members will be working alongside our core committee council. Rather than the clear roles of the core council, the supporting members will be more flexible; able to volunteer time and fill in where required. This will help us engage with clubs, members, authorities and the world at large to a higher standard than could be expected from the volunteered spare time of the four council members alone.
