Well Larry its like this, Other than most of our member having some form of AMA card right now the AMA could only be a MAJOR hindrance to getting our own field. There lawyers tend to draw out projects like for years with details no one cares about. i took the other path and by passed them to get this done in under a year.

I'm not sure at this point if we will ever become a AMA club as we see so little benefit from doing that.

Well, I wasnt concerned about the AMA aspect really. I've been a member of a non-AMA club for years in addition to the AMA charter club I belong to.

I was mostly wondering why you didn't post something here about the event. Was it a club members only event or did I just not see the announcement?

I am curious about your statements about the AMA making it harder to get a flying site. The Non-AMA club I belong to decided to switch over to AMA charter earlier this year rather than stick to the private insurance we had been using. We found it - AMA club status - made getting into new flying sites and keeping our existing ones - easier rather than harder. No lawyers involved at all as far as I know.

Are you guys going with a private insurer or skipping out on that?

Both of the clubs I belong to operate on public land and we have most of our indoor flying on school or county owned property so insurance of some type is a must for us. AMA coverage worked out better over all as far as the land owners were concerned.

Anyway, congrats again and next year - make sure we know about it so we can attend as well

We Did It !!!

We got our own new field just for electric planes and have been flying for the last 2 months there. For the next few years if your a member of another club in the surrounding states and visiting this area we want you to drop by and fly here for free providing you have a valid AMA card. Just contact me before hand and let our club make your day. Head to NWEF.ORG and hit the contact info button that all comes to me. We are 354 strong and growing each day.
