AMA Club # 575
welcome visiting pilots
We are very fortunate to be located in the renowned Valley Forge National Historical Park and we maintain a close relationship with park management. Part of that relationship entails courteous behavior and following a set of regulations developed in cooperation with, and adopted by the park.
The Valley Forge Signal Seekers is a charter club of the Academy of Model Aeronautics. As such, all club members and visitors must be familiar with, and adhere to the Academy of Model Aeronautics National Model Aircraft Safety Code. All pilots must also abide bythe park and club rules and regulations posted on the bulletin board. Copies of these can be downloaded by clicking on the appropriate link in the box on the right.
All visiting pilots must be current AMA members & FAA regestered, and must obtain a day pass from a club officer, instructor or BOG member at the field. Park rules prevent visiting pilots from flying without a day pass. Violators are subject to fines by the park rangers.
