Flight Times and Restrictions

The agreement we now have with the farmer requires that we abide strictly with the new conditions. These come into effect immediately on receipt of this notice. Any member flouting the rules will be subject to exclusion from the club. Any breach will activate the notice to quit and the whole club will be barred from flying at this site.

1. All models will have to comply with the BMFA/DoE noise guidelines. The club committee members will be carrying out spot checks, marking tested aircraft and making a record of the results. It is expected that some models will have to be modified; for example by changing propeller or fitting an after-silencer.

2. Avoid flying far to the north of the runway as this brings aircraft into view and earshot of the cottages.

3. Time restrictions apply to non-silent models (including some electrics):

a) Weekdays 9:00 am to 7:00 pm

b) Weekends & bank holidays 10:00 am to 5:00 pm

c) Christmas day no flying
