OFMC - Field Closing Notice for Runway Repairs
Please take note that the OFMC flying field runway and
flying area north of the pavilion and entry road will be closed for all
activities on Thursday July 7th and Friday July 8th and reopen for normal
operations on Saturday July 9th. This is necessary as the runway will be
resealed and re striped by a commercial contractor and there must be a
sufficient drying time afterward.
The helicopter/glider field on the south side will
remain available for permitted operations provided that there is absolutely no
transgression across the dirt entry road to the north.
NOTE: THERE MAY BE PERIODS WHERE NO WORKERS ARE
PRESENT DURING THE 7th and 8th. THIS DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE PERMITTED TO
USE THE MAIN FLYING FIELD AS DRYING TIMES ARE REQUIRED.
A list of flight instrustors is available in the Members Only
THE MAY 8, 2016 ISSUE OF THE 2016 MOWING SCHEDULE IS IN THE MEMBERS ONLY
The May 15th, 2016 Membership Roster is available in the Members Only Section

membership card. Your yellow membership card is no longer valid.
