Hi Everyone, This is a reminder that the gate combo will be changed on 19 Feb. If you haven’t, now’s the time to renew your membership to prevent any problems in gaining access to the field. Thanks. KC

Sunnyslope Road Closure Update   (photo)   (map)

Kitsap County Public Works has announced a long term closure of Sunnyslope Road. A pipe south of the airfield washed out on December 5th requiring them to close the road at Cynthia and at Lake Flora. Due to potential environmental impacts, the original estimate of early January for repair has been moved out until the 'end of summer'. You cannot access the field approaching from the South on Sunnyslope Road. Please use the Northern section of Sunnyslope Road until further notice.

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.
