11 Juin/juin 2021: SEE MEMBERSHIP LIMITATION REMOVED/ LIMITATION D'ADHÉSION ENLEVÉ

----------------------------
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.
Dans l'état actuel des choses, notre terrain extérieur actuel POURRAIT ne plus être disponible dans le futur. 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 . (Pour membres: ICI)

Règles de champ/Field Rules
Jan 10, 2007 - 12:08 AM - by xed
Appel
Dans un souci de sécurité, veuillez prendre le temps d'annoncer votre intention d'aller sur le terrain. Voler seul peut être dangereux et est déconseillé dans notre club.

Procédures d'accès aux champs
La porte doit être fermée en tout temps en raison du fait que des gens ont déversé sur la propriété derrière le parking et la ville oblige l'école à payer pour le nettoyage. Par conséquent, fermez la porte après votre entrée et après votre départ.

Élimination des déchets
Vous êtes responsable de tous les déchets que vous apportez sur le terrain. Veuillez ne laisser aucun désordre derrière pour que les autres s'en occupent.

Coupe de pelouse
Tous les avions doivent être immobilisés pendant que la pelouse est coupée et ne faites pas attendre le gars jusqu'à ce que vous ayez terminé de voler. Il n'est pas payé à l'heure. S'il perd son temps, cela pourrait entraîner des frais de coupe plus élevés pour le club. Cela devrait être évident, mais ce n'est apparemment pas le cas.
_______________________
Roll Call
In the interests of safety, please take the time to announce your intentions to go to the field. Flying alone can be dangerous and is discouraged at our club.

Field Access Procedures
The gate is to be kept closed at all times due to the fact that people have been dumping on the property behind the parking lot and the city is forcing the school to pay for the clean-up. Therefore, close the gate after you come in as well as after you... [Read More]

Membership/Reservation limits relaxed - 11 June 2021
May 19, 2021 - 10:42 PM - by Michael O'Bree
Original post title: Membership and reservations limits: May 2020

In view of the increasing use of the field, particularly at weekends, and because we are still operating under pandemic restrictions, the WIMAC Directors have decided to:
- limit the total number of members at the club to 95 members (excluding applications for juniors and children related to current members).
Between now and May 31, only 2020 members will be permitted to renew. If the maximum of 95 has not been reached by that date, other renewals or new members will be accepted until the limit has been reached.
- increase the total number of plane pilot reservations allowed at one time from 4 to 5 (the limit for heli/drone pilots remains at 2).
Please note that as soon as pandemic restrictions allow, the Directors will eliminate club membership and reservation restrictions.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Compte tenu de l’utilisation croissante du terrain, en particulier les fins de semaine, et parce que nous fonctionnons toujours sous des restrictions pandémiques, les directeurs de WIMAC ont décidé de:
- limiter le nombre total de membres du club à 95 membres (hors candidatures juniors et enfants liées aux membres actuels).
D'ici au 31 mai, seuls les membres 2020 seront autorisés à renouveler. Si le maximum de 95 n'a pas été atteint à cette date, d'autres renouvellements ou de nouveaux membres seront acceptés jusqu'à ce que la limite soit atteinte.
- augmenter le nombre total de réservations de pilotes d'avion autorisées en même temps de 4 à 5 (la limite pour les pilotes d'hélicoptère / drone reste à 2).
Veuillez noter que dès que les restrictions en cas de pandémie le permettront, les administrateurs élimineront les restrictions d'adhésion et... [Read More]

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.
======================================
WIMAC FPV Rules

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.
