Insect Repellent at the Airfield!
With all the rain we have had this summer, mosquitos and gnats are becoming a nuisance during the morning and evening hours. To help combat the pests we have added insect repellent to the wash station! Just a reminder, our wash station has regular hand soap, heavy duty hand soap with pumice and hand sanitizer. Also, additional paper towel rolls are located in the storage area.

New FAA Requirement for all Flyers: TRUST Test!
(The Recreational UAS Safety Test)
TRUST (The Recreational UAS Safety Test) is a collaboration between the FAA and industry to provide TRUST and educational safety material to Recreational Flyers who fly unmanned aircraft. Currently there is no deadline to complete this test, however, the test is free to take and easy to pass! The test takes about 30 minutes to complete and can be done anytime. Click on the link below to go to the test, via the AMA website. After completing the test, a certificate will be issued that you can printout and keep with you whenever you fly.
New FPV Assignment Board at the Flying Field!
There is a new video frequency assignment board at the field for pilots who fly with First Person View (FPV) equipped aircraft. Pegs are no longer required to mark your frequency, just print your name by your frequency with the grease pencil provided. If possible, try to use a frequency as far as possible from other frequencies already taken. Thanks to Jimmy Gaona for creating the new board!
Additional Lawnmower Repairs!
Last month the riding mower had a catastrophic failure. The mower gearbox, belt pulley and drivebelt were damaged due to excessive vibration in the drive shaft! Leland Turnbow repaired the gearbox and refurbished the pulley. Gabriel Perez also looked at the lawnmower and found missing bolts on the PTO shaft rear bearing quill and a missing shearing pin on the U joint. Bubba Brotherton and Gary Jones assisted in removing and reinstalling the parts into the mower. Also, thanks to our lawnmowers, Gary Jones, Tom Ungard and Jimmy Gaona who keep the outdoor field looking great.
Leland Turnbow has helped with past repairs on the lawnmower that has saved us from spending hundreds of dollars on new parts. Please support his business, West Texas Game Feeders, at 3312 N. Chadbourne St in San Angelo or visit their website (www.westtexasgamefeeders.com).
Field Day prior to the Outdoor Fly-In, Oct 2nd!
As usual, we will be having a Field Day the weekend prior to the Outdoor Fly-In on Saturday, October 2nd at 9am to prepare the field for our annual event. Please bring your weedeater, hoes and rakes to help dig up the many weeds on the runway and pilot areas. Additionally we will be cleaning the covered areas and making repairs to the safety fencing. Usually the maintenance takes about 2 hours. Free drinks will be available to the volunteers!
(In case of inclement weather, alternate date is Sunday Oct 3rd at noon)
