Flight Proficiency Check
Beginning with the 2012 membership year, MAR/C requires Proficiency Check Flights for all new members. A “New Member” is defined as someone who has not been a member for at least FIVE calendar years immediately preceding the year of application.
Airfield Operating Rules
Flight operations are governed by the Airfield Operating Rules which are posted on the King County signs at the field. Of particular importance is that all flyers identify themselves with their proper card in the frequency rack, and that all flyers keep their models inside the Flying Area defined on the Airfield Map, to avoid upsetting our neighbors.
AMA Safety Code
Flight operations are also governed by the AMA Safety Code that applies at all AMA flying sites. This code specifies the actions that each flyer agrees to do, or not to do, concerning the safe operation of a model aircraft. This code requires that first person view (FPV) operations comply with AMA document 550. All flyers must comply with this code.
General Safety Rules
These rules address safety concerns that are in addition to those associated with the operation of the model aircraft. They apply to all persons at the airfield.
Sound Abatement Program
All model aircraft must not produce a sound level greater than 90 dBA measured at 25 feet over grass as defined by MAR/C Policy 2012-1.
