FIELD RULES AND LAYOUT:
The starting benches are now placed between the fence at the blacktop and the pit line at the impound stand behind each of the five flight stations. The procedure is to use the stands for starting only and when finished flying, your plane and should be placed on the ground behind the pit line and your equipment, fuel, starter, etc. should be removed from the stand so that another flyer may use it. A sixth stand has been placed back near the split rail wood fence to be used for engine tuning, etc.
For helicopter flying, a line has been burned into the grass from the North West corner of the blacktop back to the splitrail fence. This is the flight line for heli flying which is to be done West of that line. Heli flying is not permitted on the East side of the field. (Big Bird Area) Heli flyers are not required to use the yellow pins.
A new sign with rules and layout will be placed at the impound stand in the near future.
