WIMAC est une organisation située dans l'ouest de l'île de Montréal qui a pour seul but de donner à ses membres les moyens de profiter du passe-temps passionnant qui consiste à piloter tous les types de modèles d'aéronefs, y compris les avions, hélicoptères, drones et planeurs téléguidés. De plus, piloter avec FirstPersonView est de plus en plus populaire.
Nous tiendrons nos séances de vol intérieur hebdomadaires habituelles les mardi soirs au Collège Charlemagne de janvier à mars 2020 (voir les détails ici). Cependant, dans l'état actuel des choses, notre terrain extérieur actuel POURRAIT ne plus être disponible après décembre 2019. Nous envisageons toutes les options, y compris parler à la ville de Montréal pour rester sur notre terrain existant. Pour les mises à jour en cours, pour les non-membres, voir CE FIL DU FORUM .

WIMAC is an organization located on the West Island of Montreal that exists solely to provide its members the means to enjoy the exciting hobby of flying all types of model aircraft, including radio-controlled airplanes, helicopters, drones and sailplanes. Also, flying using FirstPersonView is becoming more popular.
We will be holding our usual weekly indoor sessions on Tuesday evenings at College Charlemagne from January to March 2020 (see details here). However, as things stand, our current outdoor field MAY no longer be available after December 2019. We are looking at all options, including talking to the City of Montreal to stay at our existing field. For ongoing updates see THIS FORUM THREAD .

With all the changes that City has imposed on parks and gathering it’s in the best interest of the club that we close it until further notice.

The combination has been changed.

Respectant les directives de la ville pour les parcs le terrain de vol demeurera fermé jusqu’à nouvel ordre.

La combinaison a été modifiée.

Nous prévoyons de distribuer des badges avec notre logo, etc. à tous les membres et supporters de WIMAC afin que nous puissions être visibles - malheureusement, nous n'avons pas eu suffisamment de temps pour produire des t-shirts ou des casquettes.
Pour ceux d'entre nous qui peuvent arriver tôt, nous prévoyons de nous rencontrer sur le parking à 16 h 45 pour assurer la disponibilité du stationnement, distribuer les badges et pour Michael Jenkins d'expliquer la stratégie avant le début de la réunion.

D'autres peuvent obtenir leur badge auprès de Michael O'Bree lorsqu'ils se joignent à la réunion. Il n'y aura aucun nom sur les cartes - il s'agit uniquement d'une carte de visite WIMAC générique avec le logo du Club.

Regardez cet espace pour d'autres détails.

We plan to hand out badges with our logo, etc to all WIMAC members and supporters so we can be visible - unfortunately there was insufficient time to have t-shirts or caps produced.
For those of us who can arrive early, we plan to meet in the parking lot at 4:45pm to ensure parking availability, hand out the badges and for Michael Jenkins to explain strategy before the meeting starts.

Others can get their badges from Michael O'Bree when they join the meeting. There will be no names on the cards - it is only a generic WIMAC business card with the Club logo.

WIMAC FPV flying rules.
Jan 06, 2014 - 10:57 AM - by beto9
Version Francaise en bas.

A group of FPV flyers composed by Andrew, Tarek and Peter got together to draw the rules regulating FPV flying. They have been approved by the Directors.

1. General
1. The following rules govern all First Person View (FPV) flight operations at WIMAC.
2. FPV is defined to mean any flight in which the pilot controls the aircraft (airplane, helicopter, multi-rotor, or other) through other than direct view of the aircraft from the ground. Typically this means that an image from an on-board camera is viewed on a monitor or through a helmet mounted display (HMD).

2. MAAC FPV Rules
1. All FPV pilots should become aware of the MAAC FPV rules (available on the MAAC web site). Note that these rules are part of the MAAC safety code, adherence to which is mandatory.
2. WIMAC rules supplement the MAAC rules, and explain how they are implemented in the WIMAC environment.

3. FPV Qualifications
1. All FPV flyers shall adhere to these rules and demonstrate their flying proficiency in order to be qualified for FPV flight by a WIMAC-approved authority.
2. Separate qualifications are required for airplane, multirotor, and heli FPV.
3. Airplane pilots must be qualified “Solo” flyers.

4. No-fly Zones and Pilot Stations
1. All pilots shall ensure that they remain clear of any houses or people, even if the area is within visual range.
2. All WIMAC rules regarding airplane and heli pilot stations, flying areas and no-fly areas shall be respected.

5. Spotter
1. As required by the MAAC FPV rules, all pilots flying FPV shall be accompanied by a spotter at all times, and the spotter must maintain direct visual contact at all times. No flying beyond visual range is permitted.
