VISITING FLIERS MUST:
Please consider, when operating your model aircraft, that this club was established to promote and assist those interested in the hobby. Texas Wings membership has invested a great deal of time and money in the flying field. Please insure that your actions will in no instance jeopardize your own, or other club members’, right to fly at our facility.
We have been allowed to use the land which comprises our flying field solely at the discretion of the Texas State Facilities Commission. This right can be withdrawn at any time should your actions, or those of any other member or guest, create a situation which prompts the Commission to do so. In this regard, strict adherence to our Field-use Bylaws & personal behavior standards is vital—as well as a maintaining a courteous and positive relationship with our neighbors and visitors. If in doubt, ask a Club Officer for clarification, or assistance. Club Officers should be immediately notified of any actions, or issues, which may jeopardize Texas Wings’ continued use of our Flying Field, to ensure prompt and appropriate corrective-actions may be implemented.
A critical aspect of model aircraft flying that should receive every club member's continued attention is Safety. The accident record of the Texas Wings Flying Club has been very good, but the very nature of the sport requires continued vigilance if we are to maintain this record. In all cases, the operation of an aircraft should be dictated by a concern for the safety of your self, other pilots and spectators. The Club Safety Officer should be immediately notified of any Safety issues, or violations, which may jeopardize the Safety of members, visitors, or our facilities; to ensure appropriate corrective-actions may implemented.
When there is any doubt about safety: DO NOT FLY.
