Attention BARKS Members

From AMA Government Relations.  As of 12/12/2017, President Trump has signed a bill making UAS (most model aircraft) registration a federal requirement again, including for AMA members. For more information and frequently asked questions, please visit the AMA federal registration page here....

Flight safety issues occurred during this past summer which the BARKS officers have addressed by imposing new flight restrictions on all model aircraft.  A copy has been attached to each of the three field shelters and it is also available on the BARKS website by clicking Club Info\Documents\BARKS Rules and Regulations\BARKS Flight Patterns.  These new regulations are effective immediately.

The following rule remains in effect indefinitely:
Models with internal combustion engines are not to be flown before 10:30 AM on Sunday mornings
