Taildraggers RC Club / Field Rules

  1. The field is located on private property and we are guests of the property owner. He has been extremely gracious in allowing us to use a portion of his property for a flying site. ALL conduct should reflect the courtesy and respect due our host at ALL times.
  2. All flyers must be current members of the AMA, except for those under the pilot intro initiation program.
  3. Everyone must comply with the AMA safety code as it is written at all times.
  4. No flying before noon on Sundays.
  5. No alcoholic beverages of any kind are allowed on the premises of the Club Field, either by members, or their guests.
  6. Act in a civil manner towards your fellow members and guests. It is considered a privilege to use the club's facilities, and it is not your right.
  7. Non-members are not permitted to fly without a signed "Visitors License" and be accompanied by the member host.
  8. You may not attempt solo flight until an instructor issues you an "Open Pilots" license.
  9. You must stop flying if an officer deems your aircraft, or skill level to be below the standards of safe flight.
  10. Because the vast majority of RC pilots are using 2.4 Ghz equipment today, if you are flying on 72Mhz or HAM frequencies, you must use proper frequency control. This is your responsibility and if you shoot someone down you just bought a plane. Before turning on your 72Mhz transmitter, flyers shall obtain the correct frequency pin from the frequency board and return the frequency pin when flying on that frequency is completed.
  11. At no time is flying permitted behind the zero line. An aircraft should never fly over or past the flight line on the pilot's side of the runway. Aerobatic flight directly over the runway or in close proximity to other pilots is prohibited.
  12. On occasion, there are full scale aircraft being flown from the runway to the south of RC flying site. When there is a full scale aircraft operating in the area, LAND IMMEDIATLY, DO NOT FLY!
  13. The last person to leave the field is responsible for closing and locking the gate at the entrance.
  14. Memberships must be renewed no later than March 15th and AMA Membership must be current at all times.
  15. Membership Dues are $100.00 per year. Any new member signing up after September 1st will automatically renewed through the following March 15th.
