Industrial Fire Precaution Level   3

Due to the dry conditions, the Kitsap County Parks Department is taking steps to reduce fire risk by implementing the Industrial Fire Precaution Level (IFPL) under the auspices of the Washington Department of Natural Resources. Club members are responsible for being aware of the current IFPL & observing the restrictions specified by the County Parks Dept.

The current Kitsap (Zone 654) IFPL can also be viewed here.

IFPL 1&2: Normal airfield flight activities are permitted.
IFPL 3: Pilots must use extra vigilance in all flight operations. If an aircraft crashes, it is important to locate it and insure no fire results from fuel or battery failure. Be sure to drive vehicles only on approved roads. The use of power tools and equipment is prohibited. Keep fire safety in mind at all times; an accident could cost us the use of the airfield.
IFPL 4: All activities at the airfield are prohibited.

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.
