Frosty Fingers 2017

It Was a Cold Morning and Snow Covered the Ground
by Duane Barrett

There was no way anyone was going to beat Mike McIntyre to the first flight of the new year. He was waiting at the field, his airplane staged and ready, when Robert Westcot showed up at three minutes before midnight with his helicopter. While Robert was getting his light-equipped heli ready to fly, midnight hit and Mike was off...

Learn to Fly - Free!

Free RC Flying Lessons

     The Introductory Pilot Program is free to the trainee. It gives the beginning pilot an opportunity to learn how to fly using a club-supplied airplane and transmitter.
     The instructor's transmitter has full control of the aircraft but at any time, with the flip of a switch, allows the trainee to pilot the airplane with a second transmitter.
     It's a great way to learn about model airplanes while getting hands-on flying experience.
     For more information, contact the Head Flight Instructor.
