900' Dawn to Dusk; 2000' with Notification
After years of hard work and negotiations with the FAA culminating in a 4-day-long “Safety Risk Mitigation (SRM)” meeting, we finally have an official Letter of Agreement with the FAA and the Southern California Terminal Radar Approach Control (SoCal TRACON) granting our airfield a 900’ altitude limit dawn to dusk every day, and a 2000’ altitude limit with 24 hr notice to the FAA and SoCal TRACON. Our club is one of only a handful of RC airfields in the US to receive such an exception.
We recently lost our wonderful club secretary, webmaster, inveterate volunteer and great friend Rich Wilabee. The flight stand from which he presided as airboss for so many events is now named in his honor.
We also lost longtime club member Joe Scuro. Joe was the youth ambassador for the club, reaching out to local schools, clubs and at the Palm Springs Air Museum. Joe was a very accomplished control line pilot and loved sharing his passion with young pilots.
