With the elimination of Shannon Park from our field options, we have revamped the HEFA rules as attached. There are a few key changes:
- As noted, references to SP have been eliminated.
- More consistent general rules and fewer site-specific rules.
- There is renewed emphasis on signage from MAAC. These will be required to be posted at LT and PL. We are still working through the logistics of purchasing signs and how these might be made available to our members, but in general all access points to the pilot stations / flying areas need to be clearly identified to the public who might be accessing these sites. We will require three signs at each of the sites at major access points.
- Clear requirement that we are NOT to fly within 30m of the public (ie. those not participating in the hobby).
While a public forum can be a great venue, it would be preferred to please reach out to us directly via EMAIL with any comments on these rules. The best email is HalifaxElectricFlyers@outlook.com.
Thank you everyone for your patience.
