New Flying Field




       Keith, I would like your input on how to tell electric flyers about an alternate electric field (outdoors) in the Bluffs.  The YMCA has a soccer complex with a big piece of poured concrete adjoining it, just north and a couple of blocks east of Hurrahs' Casino on that main drag that goes east and west to the Casinos and the Mac.  


        I just found out about it today.  It seems that quite a few of the electric flyers fly there on most nice flying days, generally in the mornings around 9:00 to noon, and many of them are retired guys.   It is open and if you crash you don't have a monumental task of finding and retrieving your airplane like you do at the Omahawks field, not easy for Seniors to find and retrieve their planes.   The YMCA has no problem with flying there as long as there isn't any activities of theirs going on. 


        Just thought I would note it to you  and try to get the word around for electric flyers who would like a free  alternate field to fly out of and generally some company as well..  There is also grass if pilots would prefer that but it is short.

        Mucho Gracious....I have joined the guys there and probably some of the guys from Omaha  close to IA might also find it a nice place to fly.  I also forgot to mention, that you don't have to look into the sun in the mornings, as you can fly to the North or West if you want. 


        Thanks again,





      I publish Metro Area R/C Flying to make a central web site for all the area R/C clubs, not to replace individual club sites, but to tie all of them together and promote growth and interaction between clubs. The most important service of the web site is to post the Metro Area Schedule. The schedule lists all the events for all the clubs in one location so that R/C flyers can see what events are available in the area and plan ahead. I believe it will also help the area clubs to work out their schedules so that a club event, will not conflict, with another club's event. The next most important service is to provide a Page that has maps to all the events, meetings, dinners and parties. Right after that comes the Newsletter Page which lists club newsletters. Reading other club newsletters lets members see what others are offering in the area that they are interested in and promotes interaction between clubs.  This is your web site, if you would like to show-off your newest plane, or share an experience, you can E-Mail pictures and articles to me at:  There’s an Email Link on every page.
