5th Graders Learn to Fly
Sunday, 15 June 2008

On June 9th, the 5th graders at Douglas Whited Elementary School in Santa Rosa received a visit by the Wine Country Flyers, and each student had a chance to fly a model airplane. After a lesson in aerodynamics from club member Jeff Penner the previous week, the students were able to spend some time flying T-28’s on buddy boxes, and enjoy demonstrations by club members. For most students, this was their first experience flying a model airplane. They were very excited to participate, and the experience was both gratifying and educational. Adam Clement, Sid Maxwell, Jon Stychno, and Merle McGregor guided students through the sky with the T-28’s, while Bob Rose and Jeff Penner assisted on the ground. Ray Petersen was also on hand to take pictures. After many flights were logged, the students were treated to aerial demonstrations by Jeff Penner with his helicopter, followed by Sid, Adam, Merle, and Jon with various airplanes. The many oooo’s and aaaaa’s shouted by the students sure put a smile on the club members faces! The club had a lot of fun sharing the hobby, and have already been invited back for another “Learn to Fly Day” next year. If your school or organization would like to have a visit from the Wine Country Flyers, follow this contact us link.
 
Flying site open, for electric powered aircraft only.
Wednesday, 23 April 2008
The Healdsburg flying site reopened on Wednesday, the 21st of May, for members who have signed the "electric only agreement". Once signed, members will receive a key to unlock the gate. The gate must remain closed and locked at all times. This will prevent any unauthorized flying of aircraft other than those powered by electric motors. The agreement will be available to sign at the monthly general meeting on Tuesday, the 17th of June. The only way this lease was possible was agree to allow electric aircraft only to be flown at the field. The club will still be able to have a place to fly, and store our equipment while steps are being taken to develop a new flying site on Meacham Rd. in Cotati.
