National Aviation Day is August 17th.
We are planning our local event for that Saturday 8am-1pm. Contests, Exhibition Flying, Food & Fun. At least 12 volunteers are needed for the event. 2 for the grill, 3-6 for contests (three contests) 2 for 50/50 and raffle, 2 for parking coordination, 2 to set up flight simulators. People are also needed to help set up the runway for events. Also need pilots for the 3D exhibition flying. Contact Doug to sign up to help our Event Coordinator Johnny Feaster.
We are a group of RC aviation hobbyists. Our members are of all ages and levels of expertise. On any day you can watch model airplanes, gliders, helicopters and drones. We can help you get a successful start in the hobby by providing advice and flight training instructors so you can learn with support from our experienced pilots. The club has several trainer planes to allow you to try some hands-on flying before you get your own plane.
Our flying field is located in Dyer Park. Our Club, through membership dues and generous donations provide a paved runway, a grass runway, a separate heli/drone area, 6 gas engine run-up areas, 12 covered workbenches and 8 covered picnic tables with a great view.
