Competitions usually start at 9am.
Note: Most clubs dont fly at all on days of total fire ban
When visiting other clubs as an individual
wanting to fly there, introduce yourself, preferably to a committee
member. You will need to show your FAI card to prove you have insurance,
your valid Heavy Model Permit if applicable, and be signed into the
Visitors Book. Enquire what the local rules are before flying and obey
them, especially any that relate to frequency control.
At competition events, the Contest Director
usually takes charge of these matters, and explains the details at a
pilots briefing before the event starts. Above all, treat the host club
and its’ members with respect, and feel privileged that you may be
allowed to fly at their field.
