Welcome to OCMA
Updated September 23, 2022

The field is OPEN

Hey everyone,

There is a terrain run tomorrow at James Events . It is the “Mud Girl” run. They will be using the flats for parking, not the airfield.

There will be additional traffic on Haul Rd Saturday, the field will be OPEN!

Please mind the western boundary.

Have a great weekend!

IT”S RATTLESNAKE SEASON!

Rattlers have been spotted along the piping on the entry road. Watch your step especially along the pit fencing, picnic tables, railroad ties and black pipes. Be aware! Rattlesnakes like to hang out in and around the Porta Potties. Especially be aware and careful recovering you aircraft from the field, even if it’s still inbounds. For Emergencies dial 911, they all know where the airfield is. With the drought California has an exploding population of rattlers this year and we are smack in the middle of protected habitat (rattlesnake country).

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.
