We are happy to announce that we expect Lorton field to open on Saturday, May 6 approximately 9 AM. This is contingent upon the weather and field conditions. But we are very hopeful. We have provided the link for the field rules. Please read them carefully. You can send your application and Lorton dues (check or via PayPal) to Bob Freas . Submission of the application and dues is a prerequisite to flying at Lorton (we owe the County a list of “Lorton Members” before we open for operation per our MOA with the County).
Please do not visit the field until May 6.
Remember to sign in and out at the main administration building in the NVRC binder and you must wear a reflective vest while on site at all times. If you are the first member to arrive at the field, you must call Ft. Belvoir Flight Tower to advise them we are flying that day (the phone number will be in the NVRC sign-in/out binder). Vests are available on Amazon for about seven dollars. We look forward to this new exciting chapter for NVRC and hope you can join us.
You will receive an additional band for your transmitter permitting you to fly at Lorton/Burnett.
Please send a stamped, self-addressed envelope and the application form with remittance to:
8006 Chippenham Ct
Fairfax Station, VA 22039
