11/26/2013 - New President Pro Temp Appointed - Rolando (Roly) Hernandez
The Board of Directors is very honored to announce the appointed of Rolando (Roly) Hernandez as AMPS President Pro Temp. Please help us express our gratitude to Roly for accepting to take over the position. Roly will serve in this position until December when official elections will be held to formally elect a President.

A reminder from the Board of Directors - Guest pilots at the field
Guest fliers must be pre-registered in order to fly at our field. If you want to bring a guest pilot to the field, you must contact one of the board members (Roly, Butch, Chris or Mauricio) and make sure that your guest is registered. Failure to do so will result in a field rules violation and could jeopardize your membership. As always, your guest MUST be AMA member and you MUST be present while they are flying.

Guest List

Special message from the Board of Directors - Courtesy to field workers
There will be no flying of model aircraft while the runways are being mowed. When you see the mower on the runway, all flying is to stop. The person doing the mowing should not have to ask any pilot to stop flying in order to mow. The mowing personnel has been instructed to fill out grievance forms against any person who does not cooperate.
