FIELD SAFETY NOTE FOR MEMBERS AND VISITORS
Please stop and wait for a signal to proceed before crossing the runway to reach the pits and parking area – there may be traffic either on the runway or on short final for a landing.
Safety at our field is our paramount concern. Most safe practices are common sense, so we ask our pilots (and visitors) to consider safety first, by (for example):
- Not flying behind the flight line, and not walking (or riding) in front of it
- Using the pilot stations
- Not taxiing aircraft in the pits
- Not walking on the runway without checking with pilots when aircraft are either in the air or on the runway
As a MAAC-affiliated club, we follow MAAC’s policies, rules, and suggestions. MAAC’s collection of safety-related documents are located here. Click on the Safety Committee link for the list.
