Miramar R/C Flyers will be hosting their Third annual helicopter fun fly "Rotors Over Miramar" July 9th and 10th 2011.

This will be an AMA sanctioned event so AMA membership will be required to fly.

The club is located onboard MCAS Miramar and for that reason much of the SoCal heli community has not had a chance to experience our club. For the 2 day event our gates will be open for fun, flying and friends. Don't miss out on this chance to fly at Miramar San Diego.

All pilots from novice to factory pilots are welcome. Factory demos will be arranged on as needed basis. Fun events are in the planning such as auto contest. Sport, 3D, scale and turbine flying are all welcome. The main purpose of the event is to open the gates and let the SoCal heli community get together for some fun. Out of town quests are also welcome and encouraged.

Food and local Hobby vendors will be on site.

The gate will be open at 7:30am
Pilot registration will begin at 8:00am
Registration fee is $20 and will cover you for both days. $25 will get you an event t-shirt included.
Open flying will begin after pilots meeting and go until about 5pm

I will continue to add information to this event thread as the details get worked out. If you have any questions about the event please email me at darren@miramarrcflyers.com, Post questions to this thread or stop by our website for more information.

Rotors Over Miramar Event Rules and Info
Sorry this took so long, we've been working with the base to allow us some firsts and just got the ok(s).

Flying Site:
1. The MRCF field is located on an active military reserve and is subject to all of the base rules and regulations.
2. Smoking, alcohol consumption and illegal drug use are strictly prohibited at all times on the base. This is not negotiable!
3. The flying field is situated within a nature preserve and all animals and vegetation on the site are protected.
4. Access to undeveloped areas is prohibited. Please do not “hike” out into the brushed areas. Large rattlesnakes are living around our field and we don’t want anyone getting bitten.
5. Do not disturb the wildlife. If you encounter a snake or other animal, back away and leave it alone.
6. All other MRCF club rules will be in effect. Those rules can be found at:
http://www.miramarrcflyers.com/inde...id=43&Itemid=69

Site Access:
1. The Miramar RC Flyers field is only accessible by way of a locked gate. Entry and exit are strictly controlled and everyone must be escorted to and from the field by a club member.
2. The entry gate will be open from 0700 until 1000 each morning of the event and then periodically throughout the day and again in the evening for those who wish to go get some dinner off-site.
3. If you arrive and the gate is locked, dial the number on the white board at the gate and tell the person that answers you’ve come for the fun fly. Someone will be sent down to let you in.
4. If you need to leave the field you will need to get a club member to escort you to the gate. Please be thoughtful of the club.

AMA Regulations:
1. The AMA National Model Aircraft Safety Code will be strictly enforced.
2. Valid AMA cards are *REQUIRED* for ALL pilots and must be shown at pilot registry.
3. Frequency control is in effect for anyone operating in the 72MHz bands. All 72 MHz band pilots will be required to place their AMA card in the appropriate frequency slot in the channel board and display the corresponding frequency pin in a visible location.

Flight Line:
1. All pilots *MUST* have a spotter.
2. The spotter is responsible for informing the pilot of “traffic” encroaching upon his defined airspace.
3. *ONE* photographer may stand with the pilot/spotter with the pilot’s permission.
4. No one is permitted past the pit fence other than the pilot, spotter and photographer as stated above.
5. Pilots waiting for a flight station may stage their aircraft and support gear in the pit area while they wait.
6. All spectators will be prohibited from entering the zone between the pits and the flight stations.

Night Flying:
This is a first for the Miramar RC Flyers club and as such there will be limitations:
1. All helicopters must be self-illuminated. Sorry, no spotlight flying. Maybe next time.
2. There will be pilot station available and only *ONE* helicopter will be allowed in the air at a time.

Turbine Aircraft:
1. All Turbine operators will be required to produce a current AMA turbine waiver at registration
2. All turbine operations will be subject to the AMA's Turbine Safety Regulations which can be found at: http://www.modelaircraft.org/PDF-files/510-A.pdf
3. All Turbine operations are subject to National Weather Service Fire Weather Planning Forecasts (FWZ), National Weather Service Red Flag Warnings and Fire Weather Watches for California. Red Flag = no fly. No exceptions.

Camping:
1. There will be limited space available for overnight camping in RVs or campers - there will be no tent camping allowed.
2. Please contact Darren Hauptman or Kevin Spousta in advance of the event to check on availability.
3. The field will be open for camper arrivals starting Friday, July 8th after 4pm.
4. Club members will be on site to help with positioning your rig.
5. All RVs must be gone by 5:30 PM on Sunday the 10th.
6. There are no hookups and no potable water available. Fill up before you show up.
7. No dumping of any RV tanks – not even fresh water. Find a dump station on your way home.
8. Absolutely *NO* open fires. That includes gas barbecues. The club has a permit for its gas grill and its use will be available for overnight guests. Please provide your own BBQ tools.
9. The club has no trash pickup services so please police your own areas and take your own trash with you when you go.
10. Generator use is ok provided your generator is equipped with a spark arrestor and muffler. All generators must be shut down at 11:00pm.

Hotels:
There are two hotels across the freeway from the field -

1. Holiday Inn (http://www.holidayinn.com/hotels/us...nmm/hoteldetail)
2. Best Western Plus. (http://www.bestwesternmiramar.com/)

Remember, we are all guests of the US Marine Corp while at the field. Please act accordingly.

Based on the phone calls and e-mails I've received over the past two months, it sounds like there will be a pretty decent turnout.

We've got Bangin' Burgers cooking lunch for us on Saturday and the club will be doing lunch on Sunday.

If you're coming out in an RV, Darren and I will be on-site Friday the 8th at 4:00pm to get you in and situated.

We will be doing a little flying until dusk as well..

See you guys this weekend!

-Kevin
