Sound Level and Model Airplanes - Both of our flying sites are leased from city or county governments. We have agreed to limit sound levels at both sites and are bound by lease agreements to follow these rules. To minimize impact on our hobby and keep our flying sites, Randy Ling has prepared a document to help explain how we can attain sound levels at or below the limits. Please take the time to read Sound at the Field and contact Randy if you have any questions. All new or modified gas/fuel models must have a madatory sound level check before flying. Please contact Randy Ling or Steve Ashmore.
If you have a new or modified gas or glow engine model aircraft, please contact Steve Ashmore to set up a time to test your aircraft at the field. If you have any questions about how to reduce noise level Steve or Randy would be happy to help.
