Welcome to OCMA
Updated January 21, 2022

Field is Open!

 

Hello everyone!

Unfortunately our pandemic experience isn’t quite over and many of you have voiced your concern for large gatherings which is why the safety meetings were postponed.
With that the OCMA BoD has revisited the process and will go with the “Drive Thru” key exchange and waiver signing just like last year.

Session 1: Sunday, February 6 2022 from 9:00AM till 11:00AM
Session 2: Saturday, February 12, 2022 from 9:00AM till 11:00AM

You’ll be given 2022 Waiver (Identical to the 2021 waiver) and if you didn’t bring one, a new pen, you may keep the pen. Only the waiver handed to you when you enter will be accepted once signed and verified. At the second station you will hand in your 2022 badge, signed 2022 Waiver and 2021 Gate Key. All will be verified on the spot at which time your 2022 Membership Badge, with 2022 sticker and your 2022 gate key will be returned to you. At this time your 2022 membership has been formally accepted and the field is open to you. With only a couple of exceptions all 2022 badges have been mailed out as your 2022 applications started processing. We will not complete this process without your 2022 badge, please make sure you bring it with you on that day. A properly completed waiver and 2022 badge is required to obtain the 2022 key.

Once through the process, the field is open and you are welcome to fly.

We will have the 2021 and 2022 locks on both the Santiago and Airfield gates until the conclusion of the second session on Saturday February 12 so no one will be locked out.

There will be a make-up session scheduled for those who cannot make either of these dates.

Thank you for your continued support!

What is required to fly at OCMA 2021 and beyond:

Safety Officers, Field Marshals and BoD Officers have the authority to verify. Aircraft not displaying the proper FAA number will not be allowed to fly until they do. We are assuming you all have your AMA information inside your aircraft which has always been required by AMA.

Air space boundaries!

It is extremely important that we all fly within our defined airspace AT ALL TIMES. There have been a number of occasions recently that our aircraft have been observed well outside our boundaries. By that I mean over the river to the north and up the valley well past our eastern boundary. If you have difficulty judging this, please use a spotter. Fly within the tree line to the west and east, use the oak tree across the field as your northern boundary. Using this as your guide, you will be flying inside our agreed airspace. A map of our airspace ison the bulletin board at the field and at the link below.
