Safety Report for Jan/Feb 2018

Happy new year!

This year is going to be great with lots of flying ahead. I would like to start off, one of our members was cut pretty badly on his finger while landing his popwing. A gust brought it close to him and when he beached to stop it he was cut. Fortunately other members had firs aid kits on hand to help. I hope you keep one in your flight gear. Lastly mixed use space is being infringed upon between the rotorplex and the west end of the run way. Take offs and landings are the most critical time for a fixed wing aircraft. And don’t have the maneuverability during these time to dodge a midair. Please allow the space for fixed wing. And stay in the mixed area pattern. 

Thank you,

Tony Blackhurst.
