Membership Rates Explaination

Aim of this page

This page aims to explain how the new membership rates are set for the membership year starting in October 2013.

Why the changes?

Following a presentation at the BBAC AGM in March 2012, the membership present at the meeting voted for an increase in the membership fees to enable the club to continue to perform its role supporting balloonists in the UK, in Europe and worldwide. You can see what you get and don't get as a member in this document.

What are the new rates?

Follow the next sections through to find out the rate at which you should be joining.

I'm Not A Pilot or Pilot Under Training

...but I live at the same address as someone else who is a Full member of the club, or am just joining to use the BBAC insurance deal

  • Join at the Non-Pilot Associate Rate (£5)
  • You'll need to know the BBAC membership number of a "Full" member
  • You won't receive your own copy of Aerostat

...and I don't live with someone else who is a Full member of the club

  • Join at the Non-Pilot Full Rate (£35)

I'm joining during April, May, June or July

  • There is a reduction available to new, Full members during these months, as some copies of Aerostat will have been missed
  • This doesn't apply if you've been a member in the last five years.
  • You'll need to renew your membership at the relevant rate in September.
  • There's no reduction for Associate members joining during these months (Pilot or Non-Pilot)

I'm joining anew during August and September

  • You'll be a member until 30th September the next year, getting up to two months of free membership on top of the full twelve months of membership!

I've been a member in the last five years but my membership has lapsed. Can I get the reduced (half-year) rate?

  • No, sorry. You will need to join at the full yearly rate.
