HELP! “Share Our Field” for Presidential TFR’s in Delaware

HELP! “Share Our Field” for Presidential TFR’s in Delaware

Dear AMA Modeler- As most of you are aware, the change in administration in Washington, D.C., will result in President Joe Biden traveling to his home in Wilmington DE, and his beach home in Rehoboth Beach DE, primarily on weekends. Whenever the President travels, Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs) are imposed, preventing the flying of any full-scale aircraft, model airplane, or drone inside a 30 nautical mile (NM) range of the President. These TFRs will impact AMA members and clubs in portions of AMA District II, District III, and District IV. In a joint effort of the three affected AMA districts, we are launching the “Share Our Field” program to help ease the effects of Presidential TFRs on AMA members. The three AMA districts are jointly asking clubs outside the TFRs 30NM range, and up to 75NM from the TFR center, to voluntarily invite those AMA club members inside the TFRs to come out to enjoy flying at unaffected club fields. This is a wonderful opportunity for our fliers to not only help one another, but also build club and member camaraderie, expand your connections with fellow modelers, enjoy flying together, and perhaps gain another club member or two. The following link is a map that depicts all of the clubs within 75NM from the TFR centers: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=1pFrHM3UUuj3lZ8wpzNj0zzTYHmaiPcTg&usp=sharing. If yours is missing please let us know. You will notice in the above linked map and this PDF listing, there are a lot of clubs that can help with this program. We ask that if your club is able to share and invite AMA members to your field, to you please...

Warbirds over Delaware Open for Business

I just spent the day enjoying wonderful weather, great friendly people and some pretty spectacular airplanes.  Anybody in range should drop whatever they are doing and get to Lums Pond to see this event.  This is a family friendly environment with good food provided by a local Scout Troup.  Wanted to share some photos to share the feel of what is going on- biplanes, triplanes, 3 scale warthog jets flying together- something for everyone.
