Club Flight Line Definitions From Our Safety Officer:
In accordance with AMA Radio-control Safety Code 3, the members present
at the Sunchasers November, 2006, meeting established the
following flight line and no-fly safety zone. The flight line
is the west edge of the runway beginning at a point perpendicular
to the northern most post of the chain link fence extending
to a point perpendicular to the southern most point of the
chain link fence. The no-fly zone is from the flight line
to the west edge of Woodland Ave. Intentional flying over
this area is not allowed to help protect other pilots flying
or in the pits, visitors in the spectator area, and vehicles
in the parking area.
- Never reach over the prop to remove the glow starter.
Always walk around behind the airplane to do this.
- Walk behind the airplane and make sure that the area in front of the airplane
and in the plane of the prop is clear before running the engine up. Props
have been known to break when you run the engine up!
