    The enlarged Elings Park runway is now big enough for almost everyone to land on! (5-28-20)

At this time, the COVID-19 issues continues in California. However flying at Elings is up to your discretion. It's outside, and by maintaining the 6 feet separation, wearing masks, and hand cleanliness, flying is your choice. Now is a good time to get out that plane may require a bit of tender loving care or start a build of a new plane for the summer..... Let's call it "Shelter in the Shop".(7/22/20)

Elings Park Flying

The South Elings Park field is open from 7AM to 5 PM. Most flyers come Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 7:15AM.   Evening flying starts about 5:00pm until closing. Our runway is just below where the paragliders land.

Learn to Fly

At our morning flying activity at Elings, we demonstrate and teach RC airplanes to adults and youth.   We can give you suggestions on buying, flying, and maintaining an airplane.  We also can let you experience flying a model airplane. We use our airplane and our two transmitters, one for you and one for the instructor.  We give you control and take it back if you have difficulty. Introductory lesson is free.  After the introductory session,  an Elings Park membership is required. Contact us for information and to make a reservation at the field.

Float Flying

We fly airplanes on Lake Cachuma, Mohawk Shores several times a year.  Dates for 2021 have been selected and are  confirmed and are published on the club calendar. Contact us for information and questions.
