New Field Rule – Attention All Pilots!

This is a rerun of the notice that appeared in last month’s newsletter:

With the dramatic increase in campers at the Lums Pond campground and the close proximity of the Lums Pond Flying Field to the campground, complaints about aircraft noise have been on the increase. In a proactive move to retain the superb flying field that has served us so well for over thirty years, the Park management and the Club Board have jointly agreed to the following new park rule:

Effective May 1, 2003, all model aircraft flying at Lums Pond State Park R/C Flying Field is restricted to:

1) electric power ONLY (internal combustion engines prohibited) after 6 P.M. on Fridays, Saturdays, and the nights before major holidays.

2) during the electric-only restricted periods, flight patterns that do not extend South of the North/South runway, or over the tree line from the midpoint of the North/South runway and to the South of that midpoint.

Questions should be addressed to the Manager of Lums Pond State Park and to the Officers of the Delaware R/C Club.

Park rangers will be directed to enforce this new rule, and to also enforce park permit and flying insurance (AMA membership) requirements.
