Call range control at 765-2287 before you fly!
If a member wants access to the Ft. Lee field for ANY purpose at anytime, they are to call Range Control BEFORE entering the gate. If there is no answer (usually after 5 PM on weekdays, weekends or holidays), then the member may enter the field. The member’s name, the date and remarks must be entered on the board at the mower shed.
If any member sees a vehicle enter through the gate we use and it does not come directly to the flying site, they are to call Range Control during normal duty hours or the Military Police (734-7400) if there is no answer at Range Control and report the information.
All guests must depart before the last member and that member will lock the gate.
