Briefly, Planning consent has been granted by the New Forest National Park Authority for flying, “Electric powered silent flight model aircraft & gliders & for no other use purposes, whatsoever”. We are allowed parking for 10 vehicles in the designated area & no more than 4 planes in the air at any one time. The disciplines & site usage will be very “Sensitive” especially in the initial period. We are likely to be closely observed for breach of consent. Noise & No Flying Zones are of paramount importance. Models should be as silent as possible which means that large helicopters, ducted fan planes & some ‘pusher’ models will not be allowed. Noise may be generated many ways, such as propellers out of balance, etc, which can be easily corrected.
The “No Fly Zones” are behind the flying field fence towards the road and above the fence, trees & the overhead electric power cables to the South East marked in purple on the Site Diagram, displayed in the white Registration Box, Register book & on the Club web site.
Care to be taken when flying over the adjacent field to the North containing horses. This Field cannot be entered to recover planes accidently landed in this area without the consent of the owners.
The Pits Area is designated by the posts marked with white paint.
We have the permission of the Landowner for use of his land providing it does not conflict with any of his other uses, i.e. car boot sales, caravans, other events. Members will be notified of any such restrictions. Present restriction is the Car Boot Sales held on Sunday mornings, field is available for flying from 3.00pm when the site has been cleared.
It is essential we have to be self-policing policy in Club’s & neighbour’s interests. All members have a personal responsibility to maintain standards by advising other pilots, in a pleasant inoffensive manner, if levels are considered to be excessive, particularly if a plane is straying over a No Fly Zone. Any consistent excesses or problems should be reported to a committee member.
