DDMAC Easter Invite

 

 

Dewsbury and District Model Aero Club (DDMAC) are holding an informal Easter Fly In event, on Monday 2nd April 2018 (Easter Monday), starting at 11.00am at the DDMAC flying site.

 

 

 

On behalf of the Dewsbury Club Committee, I would like to extend an invitation to you and your fellow club members to join us for the day.

 

 

 

 KADMAC members are welcome to come along and fly any type aircraft (fixed wing, helicopter or multi rotor) and enjoy the day.  We will also hold our ETA event (details below) and a few other ad hoc events during the day.

 

 

 

ETA Fixed Wing, Helicopters & Multi Rotor
Draw a time from a hat (can be anything from 90 to 150 seconds). Flyer has to take off and land, trying to land in a time, as near as possible to the time drawn from the hat. Winner is the pilot who lands the nearest to their time. Time starts from when the wheels or skids (helicopters / multi rotor) leave the ground and ends when they wheels/skids touch back down (no transmitter timers or watches allowed).

 

All pilots will be briefed, as they arrive regarding the flying field rules and transmitter control. If you have any questions, please ask. The safety of everyone is paramount.

 

Tea & Coffee will be available in the club cabin throughout the day.
We will be looking to serve bacon and sausage sandwiches around mid-day.

 

There will be a charity donation jar. Any donations will be gratefully received and will go to the clubs nominated charity for the year, Kirkwood Hospice.

 

 

 

We do have a limit of no models over 7 Kilograms and a noise limit of no models over 82 decibels measured at 7 metres.

 

 

 

Any updates relating to the event will be put on the club forum, including confirmation as to whether the event is going ahead or not, in case of any adverse weather conditions.

Other venues to fly at.

A lot of our members whilst our quite happy to just fly up on Harden Moor which is quite fine, I would like to remind you that there are over venues available to you locally where you can go to test your flying skills. One of them is RAF Dishforth, a great venue with tarmac runways and loads of open space plus loads of open dates. Click Here for more information.

Also coming up is an invite from Terry Lee at Pontefract, see below.

It is just over a month to our first ‘Northern Area Fly-in’ to be held at the Pontefract clubs site (on Pontefract racecourse). All clubs in the area are invited to come along & enjoy yourselves. Its just a friendly get together & fly your models – any type except large jets (as they tend to fly outside our boundary). We may also have some night flying on the Saturday! It is to be held over two days – 22nd & 23rd July 2017 & camping is available over Saturday night (please book your pitch). A BBQ & teas/coffee will be available throughout both days.
