Field Rules

Chollas RC Flyers Field Rules

These rules are enforced to promote safe flying and courteous treatment of all flying equipment and discourage aggressive behavior and/or flying.

The privilege of flying at the club’s field may be revoked at the decision of the Safety Officer or two or more club officers on a temporary basis until the issue can be discussed by the majority of the club’s officers.

Violation of rules can lead to membership suspension or expulsion by the Executive Committee.
