Notes from the last club meeting
Discussion was heard on a
couple of safety matters. Firstly, it was suggested that racetrack
drivers should appoint a spotter, if the racetrack is in use
while aircraft are in the air.
Landing approaches from the
left hand end of the field were also discussed. A point was
made that landing approaches should always be confined to the
correct side of the flight line. Aircraft should not be flying
behind the flight line at any time.
Lastly, discussion was heard
concerning vertical maneuvers close to the flight line. It was
decided that all maneuvers which include vertical movement (i.e
loops, torque rolls etc.) should be limited to a distance no closer
to the flight line than the windsock is.
Discussion was heard on the
possibility of getting a drink machine at the field.
Discussion was heard
concerning the family fun fly. No dates have been set as yet.
