Safety and Training
« on: May 09, 2019, 08:20:26 AM »

Just a reminder that No, repeat NO  new students or students in training without his wings are to fly alone without the assistance of an Instructor.

Just ask around if an instructor is available

Simple rule, easy to understand and safe for all

Good point Rene,

Flying alone when a member has not successfully completed their wings training also has consequences beyond being a club/MAAC rule and can impact our Club's  MAAC status and insurance coverage. Please keep this in mind. We ask all members who have not received their wings to participate in the flight training program and to work with our Instructors to gain proficiency.

KRCM By-Laws – Appendix A

KRCM Flying Requirements

To fly at the KRCM Field you must have your current MAAC or AMA Membership card
with you. If we allow anyone to fly without MAAC (or AMA), our field's insurance
coverage is void!

To fly solo (fixed-wing) you must be listed as "Pilot" on the KRCM Roster or be flying under
the supervision of a KRCM Member who is a Pilot or Instructor.

Check the Club Roster at If your flight status seems to be incorrectly
recorded, please contact any one of the Club Executive or any Instructor so that we may
correct the situation.

KRCM welcomes guest Pilots. If you are a guest, or if you have moved here from another
club, or were previously a Member of KRCM, please talk to one of our experienced Pilots,
preferably an Instructor, regarding Safety and operations at our field. You may be asked to
demonstrate basic piloting skills and knowledge of the MAAC and KRCM requirements
before flying solo.

To fly helicopters, please check with an Instructor to receive some orientation and discuss the
Field Rules, etc.

Running of engines or flying is not allowed before 8 a.m. Monday through Friday inclusive
and not prior to 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, with the exception of special events which
shall start no earlier than 8 a.m. Low-noise, electric-powered aircraft are not subject to this

Any Member of KRCM who is not already listed as a "Pilot" should register with the
Chief Flying Instructor so that they may be checked out or enter into the KRCM Flight
Training Program.

Turbine-powered aircraft are not allowed to fly at this field, due to fire hazard.

Safety is everybody's responsibility!
My purpose in Life is to serve as a Warning to others

Just to add to Garry listing of safety points, There is nothing wrong by asking somebody that you dont know to show the maac card before they are allowed to fly
