Industrial Fire Precaution Level   

(Updated September 13, 2018)
The Kitsap County Fire Marshall has lifted the Burn Ban on recreational fires as of 9/6/18, however the Burn Ban is still in effect. We can work in the parks past 1:00 p.m., operate power equipment and drive in the park. Bring and use a fire extinguisher if you have one; just error on the side of caution. If we get the cooler weather and rains as expected, the K.C. Fire Marshall may lift the ban 100% in the coming weeks.

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.
