GENERAL “RULES” 1/01/22
The aim of these “rules” is to provide a safe, easygoing, welcoming field for
our members and visitors. These “rules” are more like our expectations—
directed to courteous people. They are not intended to cover every
The idea is to provide a safe, cooperative flying experience that adjusts
with the situation. We are not here to catch someone breaking a “rule”.
We'll all be better off if we're considerate of our colleagues.
GATE—When you open the gate, chain it back and lock the chain and
padlock. When last to leave, lock it. Don't give the gate code to anyone you don't know. Those who are uncomfortable flying alone at the field, day lock the gate behind you.
PARKING—Please park perpendicular to the flight line and in front of the cones and chains, leaving space to walk around the tables. Please conserve parking spaces.
ID CARDS are for identifying members and learning names. Please wear
your ID Card when you're at the field.
TIDINESS—Take all your own garbage home (incl butts). Put chairs away
under the tables.
TABLES & SMOKING—Do not sit on the tables. If you smoke, please do it
where the smoke won't bother others.
VISITORS are expected to park on the south side of the lot, keep their
animals leashed, control their kids, and treat our field as the private place it
is. Visitors are to stay south of the tables and off the pad unless specifically invited by the pilot. Please be courteous and low key when explaining rules to a visitor. Kids are not allowed to run around the pit area and flying field. This is not a playground.
FLYING SAFETY “RULES” 1/01/22
SAFETY COORDINATOR is responsible for monitoring the flying to keep
things safe. The safety coordinator may deputize other members to be a
safety presence for the SC's absences. If you see an unsafe practice,
please talk to the safety coordinator, oneof the deputies, or a club officer. If this isn't possible, please politely, privately talk to the person about the unsafe situation.
On both the runway and helicopter pad, call out “on the field”, “taking off”, “landing”, and “clear”. Make these call outs loudly so that you communicate with the rest of the pilots. Call out “heads up” if you're losing control of an aircraft
that could come close to people.
The runway is mainly for fixed wing planes, but may be used by helis and
quads. Minimize the time you tie up the runway. Get behind the flight line
and keep your aircraft flying north of the runway. Be aware of other aircraft.
The pad is for aircraft (quads, helis, DLGs, 3D planes) flown close in.
Aircraft flown from the helicopter/drone pad ideally fly to the west. If you do fly across the runway at low altitude, call out “crossing runway”.
All aircraft, regardless of altitude, shall not fly behind the red safety line. UAS departures must be from the taxiway or runway, not from the tables or pit area.
Flying over cars or behind the spools is reckless and must be avoided.
Drone pilots are encouraged to remain a safe distance and altitude when
near the Red Rock sign and people nearby.
Sailplane landings take precedence over powered aircraft. Winch pilots will sound an audible warning when taking off. All pilots must avoid entering the winch airspace when the warning is sounded to prevent mid-air collisions.
Visitors who are AMA members may fly on two visits as a guest of an
LVSC member. Those who are not AMA members must fly with an AMA
certified Introductory Pilot Instructor. The Introductory Pilot Instructor is
responsible for filling out the AMA paperwork online before flying.
