Palomar RC Flyers is not accepting new memberships, guest visitors, or conducting flight training at this time due to COVID-19 issues.
The Board of Directors of Palomar RC Flyers strongly recommends not flying at Johnson Field for the duration of the Coronavirus pandemic.
YOU RUN THE RISK OF CONTRACTING THE VIRUS AND POTENTIAL DEATH FOR YOURSELF, FRIENDS, CO-WORKERS, OR FAMILY MEMBERS IF YOU CHOOSE TO FLY IN THE PRESENCE OF OTHER MEMBERS WHO MIGHT UNKNOWINGLY ALREADY HAVE THE VIRUS EVEN THOUGH THEY DO NOT EXHIBIT ANY SYMPTOMS. YOU MIGHT HAVE THE VIRUS AND PASS IT ON TO OTHERS DESPITE THE FACT THAT YOU ARE CURRENTLY FEELING WELL.
You may cause harm to yourself and others by flying at the field during the duration of the pandemic. If you choose to fly despite these warnings, you do so at your own risk and agree to hold harmless Palomar Radio Control Flyers, Inc. the Officers and Board Members of the club and the employees and owners of Pappas Investments.
Only current members may fly. No guests will be allowed. Your family members may NOT visit the field unless they are a member. No pets will be allowed.
All pilots must follow CDC, State of California, and San Diego County guidelines for gatherings by wearing masks, social distancing, hand sanitizing and personal hygiene
Every pilot must bring masks, hand sanitizer or wipes to the field. If you don’t have it, don’t come. Palomar Radio Control Flyers does not provide hand washing or sanitizing equipment or products
Do not use adjoining tables
Club provided chairs will be removed. You may bring a chair from home to use while flying
Keep maintaining your social distancing. If you come within six feet of another member, be sure to don your mask. You must have a mask with you at all times when you are anywhere within the boundaries of Johnson Field. Wearing your mask is really a “gift” to the other members. The people that know indicate that wearing a mask may not prevent you from contracting the disease, but will likely prevent others from contracting it should you be a carrier
If you are on the flight line, you are not required to wear your mask during your flight, but, must carry it with you in the event that you encounter another member within 6 feet
We are increasing the number of members that may be inside the pit areas. Now, 12 members may be inside the fence at the Fixed Wing Field and 7 members may be inside the pit area at the helicopter field
No more than three pilots at a time at the fixed wing field flight line
The Porta Potties are now open at both locations. Please continue to bring your own hand sanitizer, but, we have procured some sanitizer that will be inside the Potties. Please use the sanitizer after you have “finished your business” and put a little dab of it on the handles when you leave.
