HMAC REEKERS FLYING FIELD
UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE IN RESPONSE TO THE
COVID 19 VIRUS LEVEL 3 STATUS
You may have read that CAA are allowing a controlled return to Model Flying activities under Level 3. At this time MFNZ are leaving it to individual clubs to manage re-opening their facilities. At this point HMAC have not made the decision to re-open until we can effectively manage large volumes of fliers (unlike some smaller clubs) and comply with the few guidelines that have been suggested. We take your health seriously and therefore appreciate your co-operation whilst we investigate what it is we as a membership and a flying facility need to do to ensure your safety.
Please keep an eye on the Website and individual emails from the club for further information.
And as stated below under Level 4, most of these points remain valid….
It’s not so much that you may come across someone else and spread/pickup the virus through contact, but more that if you were to have a serious harm accident whilst there, you are on your own. Likewise, if someone else is there, they shouldn’t be put in the position of having to take care of you. Also, any emergency response and care required takes away from those that may need it under Covid19.
Furthermore, consider the possibility of spreading the virus by opening gates, holding on to gate handles, removing the Electric fence handles and lowering fence standards around the field. All of these actions hold the potential to transmit the virus through contact with surfaces.
Play it safe, stay at home, head to the workshop and build 🙂
