Welcome to OCMA

Field is OPEN!

James Events Parks are CLOSED to the public until further notice.The SANTIAGO Gate is to remain CLOSED. Please close it behind you when entering or leaving the field!

Thank you all for being patient with reopening the field. We are able to return to our normal hours of operation, sunrise until sunset, effective immediately. Over time we’ve naturally chosen times at the field to fly that are less crowded and the field naturally lends itself to social distancing by design.

We are still required to follow Social Distancing Guidelines. The following temporary restrictions are still in place:

Temporary Field Restrictions to honor local Social Distancing Guidelines (revised)


Limited number of Pilots
Fixed Wing: 20 pilots at any one time, assuming 1 pilot/family per pit space
Rotary Wing: 6 Pilots/Family Units, one per defined pit space

Face Masks are Strongly Suggested
Local city Guidelines for Social Distancing outside is “Masks are strongly suggested”
Please show your consideration for your fellow OCMA members and wear a mask at the field. The majority of our membership is in the High Risk category.

Field Gate Warning!
The field gate is a single point of contact for everyone entering and leaving the field. The field gate must remain closed or physically manned at all times. We do not have the manpower to man the gate during hours of operation. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU BRING WHATEVER IS NECCESSAY TO WASH or DISINFECT YOUR HANDS
Hand washing station at the fixed wing pit/restroom area
No events, BBQ’s or other Social Gatherings.
Any congregating under canopies MUST respect 6’ separation.
Pilot Stations are sufficiently spaced at 10’ and greater; all 5 pilot stations may be used.

OCMA BoD

 

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.
