Industrial Fire Precaution Level

Due to the dry conditions, the Kitsap County Parks Department is taking precautions to reduce fire risk by implementing the Industrial Fire Protection Level (IFPL) under the auspices of the Washington Department of Natural Resources. Club members are responsible for being aware of the current IFPL & observing the restrictions specified by the County Parks Dept.

The current Kitsap (Zone 654) IFPL can also be viewed here.

IFPL 1 & 2: Normal airfield flight activities are permitted.
IFPL 3: All airfield activities are prohibited from 1:00 pm until 8:00 pm.
Other times require a 1-hour fire-watch after the last activity.

Learn to Fly - Free!

Free RC Flying Lessons

     The Introductory Pilot Program is free to the trainee. It gives the beginning pilot an opportunity to learn how to fly using a club-supplied airplane and transmitter.
     The instructor's transmitter has full control of the aircraft but at any time, with the flip of a switch, allows the trainee to pilot the airplane with a second transmitter.
     It's a great way to learn about model airplanes while getting hands-on flying experience.
     For more information, contact the Head Flight Instructor.
