Learn to Fly

At these morning flying meets at Elings we demonstrate and teach RC airplanes to adults and youth.   We can advise you on buying, flying, and maintaining an airplane.  Or, we often use our airplane and our two transmitters, one for you and one for the instructor.  We give you control and take it back if you have difficulty.  Introductory lesson is free.  To continue, an Elings Park membership is required.  Email for a reservation.

Float Flying

We fly airplanes on Lake Cachuma, Mohawk Shores several times a year. Dates for 2020 will be published when confirmed with the Park Service.  Contact Glenn Dorfman, or Peter Nickel
