Some of you have been busy over the winter. Mr.Collis’s latest is a Huge Kingfisher

So here we are, most of the winter behind us and fair flying days ahead. Some of the modelers have been very busy with projects. A visit to Mr Collis’s reveals quite a few updates to his stable. The Kingfisher, Aeromaster with a very large radial, a near ready Cub on floats and a Hawker Typhoon nearly ready to go. Looks like some interesting action to look forward to at the field and the lake. Good one Dave.

Now is a good time to cycle those batteries to ensure they are up to snuff. Check all your servos are screwed down well and your hinges haven’t succumbed to UV rot. They do get brittle..Best take a nice slow gentle flyer out for your first of the year or you could be scattering bits around the field. Some ventured out a few days ago getting a taste of Mission. Oh they just spread some fresh barn flooring. Sweet. Anyway take extra care, fly safe and we shall see you out there.IMG_0802 IMG_0800 IMG_0799

Very Sad News I’m afraid.

JAKE LARSEN was admitted to surrey memorial hospital two or three days ago and we are very sorry to tell you that he passed away on Sunday night 23rd August. Jake had been battling cancer for quite a while and it was not long ago that he made it to the field and flew his models with the help of some of our club members. We shall miss Jake at the field always with his happy cheerful demeanor. He will not be forgotten.

Transport Canada notice via MAAC

** Le texte français suit l’anglais. **

Transport Canada issued a Civil Aviation Safety Alert to remind all persons operating unmanned aircraft (model aircraft and unmanned air vehicles or UAVs), for any purpose, about the safety impacts and consequences of interfering with manned aircraft operations, including firefighting aircraft.

This summer, a number of incidents occurred in British Columbia where manned aircraft fighting forest fires were grounded due to interference from unmanned aircraft. The Canadian Aviation Regulations state that no unauthorized person shall operate an aircraft within 5 nautical miles (9 km) of a forest fire or within any associated restricted airspace.

The Civil Aviation Safety Alert is also a reminder of the consequences of contravening regulations pertaining to the use of unmanned aircraft.

Please distribute the Alert or this message where appropriate.

Thank you,

Bonjour,

Transports Canada a diffusé une Alerte à la sécurité de l’Aviation civile qui vise à rappeler à toutes les personnes qui utilisent des aéronefs non habités (modèles réduits d’aéronefs et véhicules aériens non habités ou UAV), dans quelque but que ce soit, les incidences sur la sécurité et les conséquences qu’il y a à interférer avec les opérations des aéronefs habités, y compris les aéronefs de lutte contre les incendies.

Cet été, un nombre d’incidents s’est produit en Colombie-Britannique où des aéronefs habités engagés dans la lutte contre les incendies de forêt ont été cloués au sol à cause d’interférence de la part d’aéronefs non habités. Le Règlement de l’aviation canadien stipule qu’il est interdit d’utiliser un aéronef à moins de 5 milles marins (9 km) d’un incendie de forêt ou dans les limites de tout espace aérien réglementé qui y est associé.

L’Alerte constitue aussi un rappel des conséquences des infractions à la réglementation liées à l’utilisation des aéronefs non habités.

Veuillez distribuer l’Alerte ou ce message si approprié.

Merci,

Government of Canada | Gouvernement du Canada

IMG_0643Hi folks, Jake came to the field today and was able to fly his plane very well for 3 flights. It was great to see him have a good time again. A very special thanks to Bill Pottage who brought out 2 “old timers” for Jake to fly. We all had a go and it was a load of fun. A big thanks also to Wayne & Pat, Rick, Bob, Iain, Peter Ken & Larry
