Affective May 24th 2019 the FAA suspended operations at the Apollo Field pending review of the local airspace and operating procedures.
The club, Department of Recreations, AMA and the FAA are working together to resolve this matter. Please do not fly UAS (drones, model airplanes or Helicopters) until this matter is resolved.
Failure to comply could jeopardize our ability to reopen the field.
To check other alltitude restrictions in your area go here:
Valley Flyers, Circle Burners, Public Flyers- thank you!
I feel the same sour taste in my mouth as all of you do and I am truly sorry. Please understand we (Valley Flyers board) are working very hard not to get changes made to club guidelines.
Some of these guidelines will become the law. In my opinion we will see changes.
It will also be under the club’s agreement, that with the support of District 6 Recreation and Parks (City of Los Angeles), the Van Nuys tower and Valley Flyers club, all communicate.
All of you will be responsible for Apollo XI Flying Field.
Washington D.C. all knows about the San Fernando Valley Radio Control Flyers Clubs situation.
Please continue being patient. Be happy for the time when we can fly at our flying field again.
Board of Directors Request of Zero (0) feet altitude, has NOT been lifted - please keep it on the ground!
We will keep you posted of any changes.
Thank you for your support but please STOP the phone calls to the Valley Flyers board of directors, AMA,and Van Nuys Airport/ Tower. The board is currently hard at work trying to get the field open. Please be patient.
Letter from the FAA
to Jason Masfield-President of the Valley Flyers
Jason, thank you for talking with me.
We are diligently working on the Letter of Agreement (LOA) between you and VNY ATCT.
(Van Nuys Air Traffic Control Tower)
This is a process that traditionally can take as long as 6 months to complete. We are expediting your LOA and hope to have it completed soon.
Until an LOA is signed and in place, no person(s) have authorization to fly at that location. It is inside of Controlled Airspace, and according to the laws and regulations, an airspace authorization is required to operate an sUAS aircraft including RC Model Aircraft.
I hope this helps and I will keep you updated on the status of the LOA.
