Flying Times

WHEN CAN I FLY?

1 Electric models that do not require a noise sticker (see the section on Noise Control,) and other silent flight models (gliders) may be flown at any time during daylight hours up to 9.00 pm, or dusk, whichever is the soonest. As an exception, on Sundays, all flying must cease at 3.00 pm.

2 i.c. powered models may not be flown on Mondays and Fridays unless the day happens to be a Bank Holiday –in which case Sunday flying times apply

3 On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, i.c. powered models may be flown between the hours of 10.00 am and 8.00 pm, or dusk, whichever is the soonest.

4 On Sundays and Bank Holidays, i.c. models may be flown between the hours of 10.00 am and 3.00 pm.

5 No i.c. model may be flown unless it carries a valid sound test sticker.

6 Normally, it is expected that pilots will fly in turn without any need for formal organization. On rare occasions when the field is very busy, it may be necessary to organize a “running order” list. This will be done by any committee member who is at the field at the time.

7 No flying is permitted whilst the field is being mown.

8 For safety reasons, never fly alone.
