Hio John,
For the SAMAA BLOG please:
This is probably focussed on full size activities as the 50Nm affects them far more during the entire WC, than our 5 Nm RC ban around stadiums only on match days!

Update from Percy on World Cup flying restrictions

I received a message during the weekend to request a meeting in this week with General Mark Hankel of Criminal Intelligence to make sure that we are aware of the seriousness of complying with their guidelines.

The message is that they will take whatever action they deem fit in respect of model pilots that ignore the security guidelines and in respect to the models involved in such a breach.

I referred him to Colonel De Villiers and to our Web site.


Note: you can find here details of what clubs are affected and when.
