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.

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.
