Our President Angelo Tata;

I have been running, guiding, and now maintaining the Club for the last 25 years I am an avid builder and flyer of all types of Radio Control Aircraft. I am an Intro Pilot with the Academy of Model Aeronautics and I enjoy the camaraderie of our Club members. I work hard in my retirement keeping the peace and caring for our exceptional flying field. We welcome you to visit and join our fine organization.

Please feel free to contact me below
with any questions or complaints.

Welcome Members:

Meeting Minutes from Saturday, April 15th 2023

The FAA and AMA have had clubs across the country jumping through hoops to legally fly model airplanes. How crazy is that. All the AMA chartered clubs are awaiting FRIA approval for their respective flying sites. We are no different.

Please be diligent in respect to following the safety guidelines established by AMA, the ones we have abided by since the clubs inception.

We have an agreement with N.E. Phila. Airport dating back to 2016 when Aleksey and I visited the FAA tower boss. In the agreement it indicates a 400’ a.g.l. and 2000’ radius from center of Benjamin Rush State Park. This agreement was included with our application for FRIA status. I’m not sure if it is still in force.

One of our problems has been losing airplane outside our permitted area. Please fly in closer to help prevent this from occurring in the first place. Utilize a spotter to assist in re-orienting yourself to the attitude of the model? Excursions outside the flying area can jeopardize the agreement to fly in the park. Bear in mind that we can be ordered to leave at any time.

Skip Chernoff has served as safety coordinator. During his absence we need someone to step in and assume the role. I would like to see at least 2 members fill this position. Ideally, we are all responsible for the day-to-day safety of each other and the preservation of the agreement to fly here. Please share the field and communicate with each other and most of all have fun!

Field maintenance: Same as last year. Most of the field prep is done on a Thursday morning. If the weather is a factor it could be Wednesday or Friday. In extreme case Saturday. With the regular crew it takes about 1-1/2 hours to complete the task. Our equipment is in very good condition relative to its age.

Please acknowledge the efforts that these dedicated members make to keep this field in the condition it’s in.

Let’s all work together to have a great season!

Saturdays cleanup was helpful, repaired some of the fencing, put flag and windsock up, moved coral wall back for more room, thanks to members that came out and helped with these projects.

Sincerely your Club Officers
