Winter is here and the indoor flying season has started! Keep an eye on the calendar for upcoming times and dates. There are scheduled events in Kalkaska, Traverse City and Peshawbestown.
No excuse for anyone not to get a chance to try their hand at indoor flying. There are some great beginner planes that are designed to fly only indoors. Also for the advanced pilots some of the new 3D profile planes will really test your skills. Come join us and keep your skills sharp while keeping your fingers warm.
Thank you to all our members for making the Christmas party a success. There were some great dishes brought to pass!

A huge job well done to all the members who performed various roles there especially Doug Sattler our CD for the event. Even though they forcast rain all weekend the worst we has was some early fog and early low clouds. Check the photo page for pictures from the show. Click here for more information.
