Lake Cachuma Rangers have notified us that the August Float Fly is cancelled, lets hope for October! (7-22-20)
The August Fun Fly was held on Saturday, the 15th with 5 pilots completing the three event schedule (we had seven starting). It was perfect weather with light winds coming from all directions at the same time. Our accountants are tallying up the results which will be posted here soon!(8-15-20)
The The enlarged Elings Park Field 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)

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. Email "firstname.lastname@example.org" for information and to make a reservation at the field.
We fly airplanes on Lake Cachuma, Mohawk Shores several times a year. Three remaining dates for 2020 have been confirmed and are published on the club calendar. Contact Glenn Dorfman email@example.com, or Peter Nickel firstname.lastname@example.org for information and questions.
