A Few Rules

  1. There is an engine size limitation at the field.  No NITRO or GAS engines larger than 1.8 cubic inch/30 cc are allowed.  This limitation is waived during AMA sanctioned events, such as IMAC or NSRCA, both precision flying contests.  Also, no TURBINE engines are allowed due to the type material used for the runway as the fabric material would be burned by the extreme heat of the exhaust.
  2. Guests of members, family members, or visitors who hold current AMA membership will be allowed to fly at SLMAC at no charge during their first visit. Subsequent flying will require joining the club.
  3. Throttle Cut must be programmed for all your models – especially large electric models or helicopters. And, of course, its best to arm models in the pit area, not on the prep tables.
  4. Oh… and we all must abide by the AMA Safety Rules so our insurance works. Here is a link to several AMA Safety Documents that apply to our field. We are after all, very  proudly AMA Club #1601. (Remember? we all promised we would follow the rules when we joined the AMA or MAAC.)
  5. In addition, by joining SLMAC, all members agree to abide the Club By-Laws dtd 7 January 2022,  and the SLMAC 2022 Safety and Flying Guidelines dtd 14 Sept 2021.
