You must have a current AMA Membership and a current FAA (UAS) Registration to fly at the Dayton Wingmasters Flying Field and you should always have your AMA card on you when you show up to fly and all your aircraft must have your FAA number on them.

No matter how BIG or SMALL your aircraft is you must have a Current AMA and anything over .55 pounds (250 grams) you must have the FAA (UAS) Registration number to fly at the Dayton Wingmaster's Flying Field.

There are no exceptions, this rule this is the Agreement the Dayton Wingmaster have had in place with the City of Dayton Parks Department for many many years and is the only reason we are allowed to fly there to this day.
