Safety Concerns

Recently there have been several incidences of club members not knowing, not understanding, and/or ignoring written and oral club rules resulting in aircraft coming too close to personnel, vehicles and other RC aircraft. The Board has proposed incorporating the oral rules into the written rules and modifying the existing written rules to clarify what is expected and required of club members at Little Field. Please review these documents and provide comments and/or recommendations to any Board member. The Board will be finalizing proposed club rules for discussion at the May club meeting.

Click here to review the proposed rules.

All flying club members are required to know and follow AMA and club rules. Current club rules are posted on the club website and on the bulletin board at the field. However, safety cannot be mandated by rules but must come from vigilant members, watching out for themselves, other members, and the public and full-scale aircraft. Remember: our field is near Bremerton airport and maintaining blue sky between models and full scale is a must. A spotter is highly recommended.

A number of field safety improvements are also being proposed. Click here to review them for discussion at the May meeting.

Work Party

Thanks everyone for the great turnout at the April 16th work party. We've never seen that many members at one time. Lots was done, including fertilizing, spraying, talking, runway patching, spreading gravel, eating, making trails, sweating, planning, cooking and more eating. It's great to watch the comradery and see everyone working together.

Learn to Fly - Free!

Free RC Flying Lessons

     The Introductory Pilot Program is free to the trainee. It gives the beginning pilot an opportunity to learn how to fly using a club-supplied airplane and transmitter.
     The instructor's transmitter has full control of the aircraft but at any time, with the flip of a switch, allows the trainee to pilot the airplane with a second transmitter.
     It's a great way to learn about model airplanes while getting hands-on flying experience.
     For more information, contact the Head Flight Instructor.
