Welcome to OCMA

The Field is OPEN!

I should have checked the weather forecast. The weatherman is calling for rain tomorrow morning. So the make-up safety meeting has been rescheduled for NEXT Saturday.

For those that were unable to attend the safety meetings in January, the Make-Up safety meeting will be NEXT Saturday, February 29 @ 9:00AM. The meeting will take approximately 1 hour.

Be there BEFORE 9:00AM!

 

What is required to fly at OCMA 2020 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.
