Basic Club Rules

Sunday flying is restricted to electric powered or glider type aircraft.
The area used by the club is to be kept clean at all times.

Special Regulations

  1. Members must have a current and valid NVRCFC and MAAC membership and must be able to show proof of these memberships.
  2. The frequency board must be used at all times. Members must provide their own frequency pins suitably identified by name.
  3. A maximum of two gas powered aircraft may be flying or with engines running at any given time. Additionally two electric planes/gliders may also fly.
  4. All flying is subject to the approval of the NVRCFC. No flying will occur when other scheduled games, soccer, baseball or other sports activity booked for the field. No flying is permitted when NVD personnel are working on the field.
  5. Permitted flying hours vary during the year to accommodate other field users. Current permitted hours will be posted on the frequency board.

MAAC Regulations

  1. All aircraft using our field must meet the MAAC noise guidelines of 90 dBA taken at 9 feet. Any aircraft exceeding this level will not be permitted to fly until brought into compliance and verified by an official of the club.
  2. MAAC safety rules shall be observed at all times.

It is everyone's responsibility to keep our field safe and incident free!

As we are fortunate to have a flying field in a semi-residential area, our field rules and regulations are strictly enforced.


Anonymous Safety Tips

Kill the throttle as soon as you cross the line on the edge of the field, entering the pitts area! A recent incident caused a pilot to lose control, crashing into a parked plane - due to not closing the throttle in time!

When your plane is no the bench, and you accidently bump the throttle stick to full throttle, don't reach through the propeller to stop your plane.

Not a safety tip, but when flying a nitro or gas plane, using partial throttle and flying your plane over the fenced area at lower altitude can lower noise outputs from our neighbours' perspectives.
