CSMS Airfield Closed
for
Water Line Maintenance

On January 2, 2022 the CSMS Airfield will be closed until further notice. The entrance gate lock combination will be changed as of tonight. Please do not jimmy the lock to gain access. I will send out an email when the field is released for use as notified by the water company. I will also post the opening on our WEB site www.csms-rc.org and on Facebook.

Charlotte Radio Control Society on Washington Loop Road is making their flying field available to our 2022 CSMS Members while our field is closed. You can contact any of the officers or board members for the electric gate code for access to their field. If you have not renewed you membership for 2022 please do so before going the their field. Also please follow the AMA Safety Code and CRCS's Safety Rules while visiting. Remember you are guests.
CRCS Rules: 
Only electrics can be flown before 9:00 AM, no glow plugs or gas.
Do not fly beyond the road on the right and on the left of the field or beyond the second fence past the windsock.
Members must display their club membership cards and AMA cards.
Only pilots and assistance are allowed on the safety line.
Deliberate flying behind the safety line is prohibited.
Taxiing is not allowed in the pit area.
Thursday is mowing day if needed and you may or may not be allowed to fly while the mowers are working.
It's a great field but limited battery charging and there is no coffee or water at the field.

Cape Coral R/Sea Hawks are also offering use of their field during January. You must be a current AMA Member. When you get there ask for a Flight Instructor to give you a flight check.

Thank you,
Eddie D. Mattingly - President
