FAA's Interpetation of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft
now you all should be aware of the FAA's Interpretation of the Special
Rule for Model Aircraft released on June 23rd, 2014. Click here for the FAA document. The board has discussed this at meetings, in newsletters and the AMA has been updating everyone online.
To comply with the FAA rule change, all TCRC flying
fields and events will now be LINE OF SIGHT only. That means
that, when flying aircraft capable of FPV, the pilot must be in direct
visual sight of the aircraft. The pilot is not allowed to fly
using a buddy box, spotter, goggles or the screen of a phone,
laptop or other computing device in lieu of direct visual sight.
Goggles and the screens of phones, laptops or other computing devices
can be used by someone OTHER THAN the pilot. An example of this
would be when the pilot wanted to give another person ‘a ride’.
There are other rule changes from FAA which the board will continue to
monitor but this seems the most major change being enforced and effects
our members most significantly. AMA is questioning these changes
and we will comply with whatever the final ruling is. Please
contact Bob or other board members if you have any questions or

Reminder to all People Flying at the Jordan Field
Anybody who fly's at the Jordan field or Fairgrounds must display a
2015 AMA membership card or 2015 TCRC membership card in order to fly.
A no exceptions policy will be enforced. This is a requirement of
our AMA Club Charter and insurance policy.
We ask that current members help enforce this rule as we are all
responsible to protect our flying sites. If you witness somebody
flying without a current card please politely inform them of our policy
and ask them to stop flying until they can show proof of membership.
