Canopy Donations

We will be replacing the fabric canopy that was destroyed by last winter's snow storm with a steel metal shed.

Anyone who wishs to make a voluntary donation for the new structure should make out a check to "Kitsap ARCS" and mailed it to the address below:
     Kitsap ARCS
     907 Shorecliff Road

Checks may also be given to any club officer at any club meeting or event.

Donations may also be made online at the Electronic Donations Page.

Work Party

On Saturday, April 27, starting at 9 am, we're looking to have a field maintenance working party. We're going to be bringing in a tractor and dump trailer to get dirt and fill in many of the sink holes, low spots and try to level some of the field on the Southwest corner of the rough area. This will also be an opportunity to put away the canvas covers from the collapsed structure, trim up some of the trees and scotch broom. Estimate the time to be between 3 - 4 hours, then plenty of open flying.

Build Challenge 2019

The 2019 Build Challenge will have entrants constructing a "new" airplane, documenting their progress with pictures on the club web site or Facebook page. All the aircraft will be flown for the first time on the same day. See Build Challenge 2019 for details.

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.
