Bill Martin Field
The Millis Model Aircraft Club RC flying field is located on the grounds of the Charles River Reservation in Medfield, MA. Bill Martin Field is shared by MMAC with the Charles River Radio Controllers. All types of R/C aircraft may be flown here, although it’s best suited for powered fixed wing aircraft.
Facilities include a well maintained grass runway, transmitter impound and frequency control board, four pilot stations protected by side fences, a spacious pit area and parking. There are no bathroom facilities.
Entrance to the field is restricted by a gate which remains locked at all times. Keys are provided to members and are rotated each year. Visitors are welcome but should first contact a club member or instructor and make arrangements for them to get their vehicle past the gate – or alternatively you could walk the 1/4 mile roadway to arrive at the runway to ask that a member open the gate. Do not drive along the railroad tracks.
Field Incident Report Form
We are required by the state to submit an Incident Report Form if any accidents, serious injury or conflicts with the law occur at Bill Martin Airfield.
What is a reportable incident? An accident resulting in personal property damage or injury to the pilot or other person is considered an incident. If police, fire department or local authority inform you that you are doing something in conflict with law or local ordinances…that is considered an incident. Minor personal injury (i.e. a small cut) minor damage to trees and turf are excluded. A noise complaint from a neighbor or a complaint from another pilot is not an incident.
There’s a federal law that describes how, when, and where you can fly drones for recreational purposes. You are considered a recreational user if you fly your drone for fun. It is important to know when and where you can fly and how to register your drone.
Following these rules will keep you and your drone safe and will help keep the airspace available to everyone.
Visit the Federal Aviation Association (FAA) Drone Zone website for more information.
