On January 1, 2013 it was reported on RC Groups that a spectator had been killed at an RC soaring slope site in Germany. After a healthy exchange of posts on RCG it became apparent the issues of RC flying club safety preparation and insurance awareness were in need of help.
From this discussion I decided it would be a worthwhile effort to launch a project that would create a well-researched outline for an RC Flying Club Safety Plan. This work is done and available on this project website to RC clubs to use as a guide.
It's gratifying to see some clubs have already taken the outline and plan to use it to develop their own safety plan. Any questions or feedback don't hesitate to ask.
