Club Membership

HOW TO BECOME A 2017 MEMBER OF THE
SILENT ELECTRIC FLYERS of SAN DIEGO

 

PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE FILLING OUT THE APPROPRIATE FORM AND PAYING DUES

 

 

SEFSD MEMBERSHIP:

 

Membership for SEFSD costs $45 for the calendar year (January 1st through December 31st). Additional family members in the same household pay $10 each for the same calendar year.

 

AMA MEMBERSHIP:

 

To join the SEFSD flying club, you must be a current member of the ACADEMY OF MODEL AERONAUTICS Join AMA Button.  AMA Membership provides you and our club important liability insurance coverage. We do not accept the Park Pilot AMA or 3 month free trial membership as it does not provide the amount of liability insurance coverage needed for SEFSD. You must have your 2017 AMA Membership completed before proceeding.

 

There are many members whose AMA membership expires December 31, 2016. When you renew your AMA membership, it will not expire until December 31, 2017 and your 2017 SEFSD Membership badge is good for the entire year.

 

---Important Note for New AMA Members (whose AMA membership does not expire on December 31st)

 

Unlike the SEFSD, AMA starts their annual membership the month that you sign up. Consequently, you will have two expiration dates in any given year, one for SEFSD and one for the AMA. You will be issued two separate SEFSD membership cards corresponding to those dates. For those new AMA members it can be a bit confusing. Your AMA membership validation is checked monthly by the SEFSD Membership Coordinator. You will not be able to fly if your AMA membership has expired. For example: if your AMA membership expires August 31st, you may not fly starting in September until you renew with AMA. If you do not renew your AMA membership until September 15, you will have no liability coverage and consequently you are not allowed to fly with SEFSD from September 1st through September 14th. If you renew with no lapse in AMA membership, a new badge will be sent with your new AMA expiration date. Your membership coordinator will also send you an email the month your AMA membership expires so you can avoid any lapse in AMA coverage. The names of those who have let their membership with AMA expire will be given to the SEFSD Board of Directors.

I ACKNOWLEDGE that flying radio-controlled aircraft is a dangerous activity and fully realize the dangers of participating in the SILENT ELECTRIC FLYERS OF SAN DIEGO RADIO CONTROLLED AIRCRAFT FLIGHT ACTIVITY (“Flight Activity”) and preparation for such Flight Activity.

I FULLY ASSUME THE RISKS associated with my participation in the Flight Activity, any negligence of The City of San Diego and its elected officials, officers, representatives, agents and employees (collectively and individually, the “City”), and the possibility of serious physical and/or mental trauma, injury, permanent paralysis or death associated with my participation in the Flight Activity. As consideration for permission to use the City’s property, facilities, and services related to the Flight Activity, I, FOR MYSELF, MY HEIRS, EXECUTORS, ADMINISTRATORS, LEGAL REPRESENATIVE, ASSIGNEES, AND SUCCESSORS IN INTEREST AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING:

1. Waiver. I do hereby release, waive, and discharge the City from all liability, and covenant not to sue the City for any and a1l claims relating in any way to any negligence of the City resulting directly or indirectly in personal injury, accident or illness (including death), and property damage or loss arising from, but not limited to, my participation in the Flight Activity and use of the City’s property, facilities, or services.

2. Indemnification and Hold Harmless. I shall protect, defend, indemnify, and hold the City, its elected officials, officers, representatives, agents and employees, harmless from and against any and all claims asserted or liability established which arise out of or are in any manner directly or indirectly related to my participation in the Flight Activity, and use of the City’s property, facilities or services, and all costs and expenses of investigating and defending against same, including without limitation attorney fees and costs; provided, however, that my duty to indemnify and hold harmless shall not include any claims or liability arising from the established sole willful misconduct of the City, its elected officials, officers, representatives, agents and employees. The City may, at its election, conduct the defense or participate in the defense of any claim related in any way to this indemnification. If the City chooses at its own election to conduct its own defense, participate in its own defense, or obtain independent legal counsel in defense of any claim related to this indemnification, I shall pay all of the costs related thereto, including without limitation reasonable attorney fees and costs.

3. Severability. I further expressly agree that this City of San Diego Waiver Of Liability Assumption of Risk, And Indemnity Agreement (“Agreement”) is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the law of the State of California and that if any portion hereof is held to be invalid, it is agreed that the balance of this Agreement shall, notwithstanding such partial invalidity, continue in full legal force and effect.

4. Acknowledgement of Understanding.
  I HAVE READ THIS AGREEMENT, FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS TERMS, AND UNDERSTAND THAT I AM GIVING UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING MY RIGHT TO SUE. I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I AM SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY AND INTEND BY MY SIGNATURE THAT IT BE A COMPLETE AND UNCONDITIONAL RELEASE OF ALL LIABILITY TO THE GREATEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW.
