Treasurer’s Report:

Treasurer absent

Old Business:

•Commercial tandems are not allowed at Fort Funston
•Propose change to rules to either incorporate tandem rules into regular rules or to specifically allow suspension of flying privileges.

Landing on Launch
• Don’t pass too closely to pedestrians.
• We can suspend pilots for landing within 25 feet
• What about landing closely to other pilots?
• How do we judge 25 feet?
• Discussion:
o 25 feet should be up to the observers’ judgement
o Other pilots shouldn’t count
o 25 feet should be obvious, especially including the reaction of the impactee

Art’s Suspension
• Steve recounted the story of Art doing 2-3 loops in the launch window, in front of the deck
• Art completely disregarded safety, the rules and, when confronted, any admission of his having done anything wrong.
• Steve recommends a longer suspension, no less than 30 days. Art to be informed that subsequent violation would be at least 6 months.
• Let him know ahead of the next meeting. We can give him a longer suspension at the next meeting. If he does it again we would suspend him for a year.
