DC-RC WALT GOOD FIELD

Click here to read the FIELD & FLIGHT RULES

The agreement with Montgomery Parks under which DC Radio Control Club (DC-RC) operates Walt Good Field specifies that the Club verify the proficiency of RC pilots who will use the field unsupervised and that they have active liability insurance. The Club therefore requires that such pilots be current members of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) and pass a Pilot Proficiency Test (PPT) administered by a DC-RC Designated Pilot Proficiency Test Conductor. There are separate PPTs for airplane, helicopter and multirotor pilots.

There are important field use rules. Please make sure you read the rules and are prepared to comply with them.

The field is wonderful and we would like to keep it!
