Noise tests

We monitor noise emissions from models to test they fall within BMFA guidelines of 82dBA @ 7m, and some results are listed here for guidance. Naturally some fail and they may not fly at a noise sensitive site until brought within these limits. A pass certificate is issued and a model MAY NOT be flown at the Rushwick site without it. It is the pilot's responsibility to arrange that test with the clubs noise meter and a committee member. No exceptions.
