KDMAS has received a new CASA permit to fly at our current field.

There are new conditions and all members must comply.

Notices have been placed at the field and if you have any questions please contact the committee.

KDMAS Display day is to be held on April 28

 

 

The roll bar has been fitted to the club Fergie, it just fits into the container now.

 

 

Warnambool Flyin is on March 16/17. Five members so far intend to go.

 

 

 Feb 2019:  Weather Station has been installed in a new location north of the club house.

 

 

Nov 11. Seven KDMAS members attended the Melton Club Open Day with sport planes, tow planes and gliders.

The Car Boot sale was well attended with lots of parts and several models changing hands.

 

Sunday Sept 30 is our car boot sale. Bring along some models or parts to sell or come along and purchase a bargain.

 August 9. The runway repair has been completed with extra pegs and silastic, thanks once again to all who assisted with this work.

 

July 29. A group of 27 members today worked in cold and windy conditions to relay the wind damaged runways.  The job is not finished yet as more pegs are being sourced to secure the matting better than before.

 

July 26. Recent strong winds have dislodged the runway matting at Keilor. A working bee has been called for Sunday July 29 at 9:30 to repair the damage. The field will remain open but members must keep off the affected areas so as not to cause further damage.

 

All members should have paid their MAAA and club fees by July 1st. If you have not you are uninsured and unfinancial and are not permitted to fly at any MAAA affiliated club including KDMAS.

 

Several members have rekindled their enthusiasm for control line flying, a flying area has been  marked out for them.

 

The Club has purchased a defibrillator which has been positioned in the clubhouse on a wall bracket. Instructions for use are with the unit but it would be advisable if all members could view the demonstration video available from the club.

 

 

 Wings Rules

The rules for flying solo have recently changed and some people may have miss-understood.

The current club rules are:

If you have not gone solo you must fly under instruction and in the case of fixed wing you must use a buddy box.

From now on to be granted solo you must achieve bronze or silver wings as appropriate for your aircraft.

The club will be encouraging solo flyers without wings to work towards attaining their wings.

 

 

 

All members at the KDMAS field must display their current club membership card on their person when flying.

No card , no flying.

However, if you have forgotten your card you can sign in as a visitor and use one of the Visitor Cards.

 

Club caps  are available again contact Shane to purchase yours.

 

We now have a link, on page one, to the Stansted Model Flying Club in England.

This is the club Rod Brister  (Craig’s Dad) flys with.
