HMAC “Runway BACK IN ACTION”

Report update: 14 August 2017

Thanks to all those that managed to make the “short notice” HMAC Working Bee at the Club Flying field on Sunday.  The worst of the holes in the runway caused by stock damage were filled and some grass seed sown. The runway has been rolled and hopefully it will get rolled again soon. So the field is now usable again for most Aircraft, although something with bigger wheels would be a wise option. Remember, we are still accessing the field via the neighboring farm track, so please exercise due care.

BACKGROUND HISTORY:……..

Report dated: 25 June 2017

Unfortunately, due to farm stock gaining access onto the Clubs Flying Field Runway over night this weekend, there has been considerable damage to the Runway Surface.

The field would currently be classed as un-flyable to any Aircraft requiring a smooth takeoff or landing surface.

You are still welcome to fly anything you consider appropriate, eg Glider, electric or hand launch models and possibly very light fun fly models. (Just something without wheels!)

We intend to have the field rolled and worked on as soon as possible, but this will be totally weather dependent. We will likely be calling on members help with a working Bee at some point as well. Look back here for future updates

HMAC Committee.
