CLUB RULES AND REGULATIONS

There is no restriction on membership based on race, sex, age or creed.
Application for membership will be made by correct completion of the Membership
Application form. The applicant must ensure that their membership form is signed by 1
member and 1 committee member.

These rules are strictly enforced. Violations of these rules will result in the revocation of flying
privileges at the CMMFC field . Disciplinary action will be taken against a member in whom the
Committee feels is in contravention of these rules. A serious breach of safety or conduct may
result in the member being expelled from the club.

1. Cato Manor Model Flying Club membership plus SAAMA membership is required.

2. No one shall fly or be in the pit area if under the influence of alcohol. Use of non-prescription controlled substances on Club property is prohibited.

3. All transmitters must be switched off and antenna in when not in use.

4. A frequency may be blocked for a maximum of 15 minutes. This is to allow others the opportunity to fly. The time is determined from the moment you place your peg on the board until the time you remove it, regardless of whether the plane got into the air or not.

5. No flying over or behind the flight line.

6. No noisy engines are allowed to be operated at the field. (a DB meter will be arranged for testing purposes if an engine is thought to be noisy.) Max. 93db

7. A fire extinguisher is required when using jet engines.

8. Running engines in pit area must have the aircraft pointed towards the field; it should be either securely tethered with a restraint in the ground or held by a third party.

9. The line of flight and the direction of pattern will be determined by wind direction and members present at the field. [Arrow above peg board]

10. Pilots, while flying, will stand at the provided flight line. (Between the orange cones.)

11. All new, repaired or altered aircraft must be safety inspected before flight by an instructor or other competent pilot.

12. All pilots shall secure the assistance of a more advanced flyer when attempting to fly an aircraft that stretches the limit of their ability. Place safety above ego.

13. It is the responsibility of all members to stop the flight of unsafe aircraft or pilots and to enforce all of the above rules.

14. Spectators are not permitted in the pits or on the flying field unless accompanied by a member.

15. When more than one plane is in the air at the same time, try to go with the general traffic pattern. You will still have much room for your own style of flying. Going with the flow lessens stress for everybody and reduces chances for close calls.

16. Courtesy will be shown to all pilots, especially new pilots. Allow them the air space they may require.

17. Make certain the runway is clear before starting to take off or land.

18. Announce when you experience radio or flying problems and don’t hesitate to ask for help if you need it!

19. Flyers shall warn bystanders not to stand in line with rotating props.

20. Do not fly in any manner that could be hazardous to anyone at the field.

21. Avoid low altitude passes and close in aerobatics when the field is congested.

22. A maximum of five aircraft under power are allowed to be airborne at one time.

23. Members are responsible for the safety of children and guests they bring to the field.

24. If you see a safety rule violation, do the person a favor and mention it to him, as it could prevent a serious injury to him or others.

25. No member or guest will be allowed to fly until he or she has joined SAMAA .

26. Dead stick landings have priority over all other traffic.

27. Prolonged engine operation is not allowed in the pit or pilot area.

28. Aircraft with obvious defects or problems should not be flown until the aircraft is fully air worthy.

29. ALL CRASH DEBRIS MUST BE THOROUGHLY REMOVED FROM THE CRASH SITE. Please keep the field and outer areas clean and free of trash. (Take all trash home with you.)

30. When landing, call out “Landing” to alert other flyers of your intentions. When your aircraft has cleared the runway, call out “Runway Clear” or “Clear”, letting other pilots know it is safe for them to land their aircraft.

31. Let other pilots know your intentions. If your aircraft is on the runway and you must retrieve it, call out, “On the runway”. After you have retrieved your aircraft and are cleared of the runway, call out, “Runway Clear.” Clear the runway as soon as possible!

32. All flyers must switch off their aircraft at the cut off zone. [one orange cone area]

33. All flyers must keep 1,5m gap between each other in the pits area. Please don’t push in between other flyers. First come, first space.

35. Hovering in the flight path cannot take place unless you are the sole pilot on the flight line.

36. Low flying electric planes (foamies etc) cannot fly over the runway when other airplanes are flying in the conventional flight pattern. Electric planes flying normal circuits are fine.

37. No hovering of helicopters over the runway or right next to the flight line where pilots are standing. Helicopters can fly circuits with other aircraft and some hover is expected over the runway when landing is called.

38. Pilots of electric powered aircraft should only “plug in “the power battery when they are at the cut off zone. [first orange cone]

If in doubt, rather than jeopardize the safety of others, direct your plane into the ground away from others and the no-fly zones.
