SRQ FIELD RENOVATION

Fellow SRQ’ers:
On behalf of the Board, I want to thank the membership for its overwhelming affirmation of the renovation proposal. Now the hard work begins. Alden is working on the construction plans as some items need immediate attention. We are now on to the fundraising. We need to complete this within the next 30 days. Doing so will allow us the most flexibility in getting the schedule we want with the runway contractor. Please recall that the work needs to be completed before the return of the rainy season early next year, so there is some urgency in obtaining the necessary funds. I will be updating you weekly with progress and reminders to get you contributions in person, by mail or by PayPal. As we are soliciting voluntary contributions, the Board would like to acknowledge everyone’s participation at one of the levels as follows:
                $100 - $400        Patron
                $401 - $700        Silver level
                $701 and above Gold level
 Additionally, contributions of $5000 or more (Platinum level) will entitle the donor to SRQ Lifetime membership. Individual amounts contributed will not be visible to other members unless you so desire. We will simply list the total number of Patron, Silver and Gold contributors, respectively.
Thanks to everyone in advance for making this worthwhile endeavor possible.
 
Anthony Lassiter
SRQ President

SRQ RC Squadron is pleased to announce a new "FPV pilot program" trial as a new and exciting way to fly RC model aircraft at our Club. Flying fixed wing model aircraft via FPV (First Person View) is an emerging aspect of the future of remote-control model aviation. It combines the tradition of flying fixed wing model aircraft with the immersive experience of being able to put yourself "in the cockpit". This method of flying is a great entry way into our hobby for new pilots and aviation enthusiasts and is a great alternative to flying via Line of Sight (LOS). To participate in SRQ RC Squadron's FPV pilot program, pilots must strictly adhere at all times to AMA guidelines and SRQ RC Squadron's field rules and regulations.
 
- FPV pilots must follow AMA rules and regulations as outlined in the AMA 550 documentation found here:
https://www.modelaircraftorg/sites/default/files/550.pdf
- FPV pilots must remain within the existing flight box at all times.
https://tinyurl.com/y2klw75y
- FPV will be allowed for fixed wing aircraft only (electric, nitro, gas).

- New members seeking to fly via FPV at our club must be certified through orientation with a Club member and must pass a basic FPV knowledge and demonstration test.
