The Field is open!
There is a new process to aid those wanting to attend. To receive a meeting invitation for this meeting you must register with Zoom using the link below. A meeting invitation will be sent automatically. Thank you.
We have some good news. With CDC restrictions beginning to relax, we will start to see more activity at James Events Parks in the form of vendor and maintenance crew access.
Starting tomorrow, April 13, if the Santiago gate is open please leave it open. Expect the “leave the gate as you found it” procedure to continue for the immediate future.
We are still operating the field in social distancing guidelines until further notice but now there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel. Naturally our field gate must remained closed and locked unless crews are working on the air field trailhead and fence.
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.
