10/11/17 - Our 2017 Fun Fly was September 23, 2017 and although it was extremely hot a good time was had by all. We had 3 different flying areas going on at the same time. On the main runway we had aircraft from small micro planes up to 120" giant scale aircraft. On the south end of the field we had the 815 FPV Club setup a MultiGP drone racing course. They did races and demos for interested people. On the north end of the field we had helicopter flying and aerobatic demos. Already looking forward to next year!!
