A talk on dealing with accidents and medical emergencies at the flying field

@David - I think you have hit the nail on the head and it hurts so I'll sit down and wait for help to arrive! Joking aside, the club I fly with has a rule that we must, at all time, on any of our 3 flying sites, have a spotter in attendance. The spotter doesn't have to be a fellow flier so could be the wife (!!!). So from my point of view, most of my flying takes place with others in attendance and this proved vital last year when one of the guys chopped a finger off putting it through the arc of a prop. The other fliers present were able to call for help (but took a while for the location to be understood by the emergency team, which is where Echo112 would have helped) and more to the point were able to stop said fingerless flier from driving himself to the hospital! I do also fly alone but this is carried out in a field adjacent to my cottage and I only fly leccy powered models there.
Regarding the point that you raised in your post TWS:
