This month’s agenda:
FRIA and Remote ID
Brian Kelly will be discussing MARC’s FRIA approval, the new rules for flying outside our area using Remote ID along with a Q&A
Mark you calendar for Thursday September 21st. The club meeting will be held at the Redmond Community Center in room 124 from 6-8pm. The room is located on the first floor which is different than our usual room (202) I encourage everyone to bring a show and tell item. It can be a current project your working on, a favorite tool or technique you use. Keep an eye out for an update on this months topic.
If you've been reading the articles in your Model Aviation magazine about the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements for Remote ID, you will be happy to hear that our application for a FRIA at Marymoor RC has been approved.
The FAA treats all RC planes, helicopters, sailplanes, and drones etc. as Unmanned Aerial Systems, or UAS.
Sorry, the field will be closed on Wed September 6, from 8 til 11 am while the park does some mowing of areas around the runway as well as off into the bush.
-- Brian Kelly (BK1) and Rob Smith
If you weren't there, we're sorry we missed you. The annual FFFaBBQ, Family Fun Fly and BBQ (pronounced FaB Q?) was a hit! Perfect weather, great attendance, delicious food, thrills, spills, and togetherness.
Special thanks to the parents of the Youth for enabling the kids to fly and learn. This year the Youth organized and executed several of the events, and everything ran so smoothly! They are our future, and it's looking bright. We love events that mix up youth and adults. Youth benefit from mentoring, and adults are reminded how much FUN the hobby can be.
Mark your calendar for September 9th! The Marymoor R/C club will be having an end of summer Swap Meet.
