Field Setup

Field Setup Instructions
All members should make themselves familiar with these field setup instructions, particularly in relation to prohibited areas and ‘No-Fly’ zones.
For safety reasons, flying is not permitted until the field has been setup.
This field layout is part of our Code of Conduct. It shows no-fly zones (outlined by dotted red lines) and is a guide for members laying out the field on flying days. The locations of cone perimeter markers, signs and the windsock etc are all indicated.

There is also a catapult for launching models which lack an undercarriage and can’t be hand-launched. Instructions on its location and usage are available from any senior member.

Please note: The no fly zones for our field (outlined by dotted red lines above) must be adhered to at all times. Members should familiarise themselves with MAAA Manual of Procedures Rule 14 (MOP014) regarding the no fly zones and the 30 meter rule. These are on the MAAA web site.
