A note about the park passes and keys. WACAMA has received the new keys and will send out the new passes and keys to those that have paid once he  prints the passes. The gate will be rekeyed for both 2018 and 2019 keys when he gets the new keys and then will rekey again to only the 2019 key at the end of January.

This last week end we had a lot of people flying and a few people commented on unsafe practices. Most of us “bend” the rules, especially when we are flying by ourselves or in click groups. Please know and accept when you are not following rules and the consequences, especially around new people who think that what we are doing is per the rules. Please fly in front of the runway and never over or behind the pilots. This applies to multis being flow off of tables too. Always give way to full scale. Fly from the pilot stations or at least  away from the runway an equal distance (I know the stations are a muddy mess). Be polite. Call landings and take offs. If someone is on the runway don’t call landing. If someone has called landing don’t walk out and set your plane down.

Please remember the park is a no smoking area. If you smoke be aware others don’t like your smoke.

To fly at Waymer you need AMA and a Park Pass. There are dates and times this is waived, Wednesdays and 10-2 Sundays. You still need to know and follow the rules. To fly any R/C vehicle over 5.5lb anywhere in the U.S. (even your back yard) you are required to register with the FAA. If you registered when this first became effective three years ago it may say it’s time to renew on your card. When I went to renew mine it now says it expires 12/12/2020. Also remember those flying FPV need FCC licenses. While we have never enforced these please remember they are federal laws.

Please fly safe, please be courteous,
President- Evan Doughty

It is Park Pass and Flying Aces Club renewal time. Please be aware that there is a difference between the WACAMA Park Pass and Flying Aces R/C Club Membership. To fly at Waymer field a Park Pass is required and AMA membership is required to apply for the Park Pass. FAPA Club Membership is not required to fly at Waymer. You can join FAPA at the same time you join or renew your WACAMA Park Pass for an additional $20.
