About Us



 

Early on, it was decided that the club would be 100% electric for multiple reasons, but mainly to keep the issue of noise pollution to a minimum in a ecologically sensitive area because of the nesting birds of prey and other animal life contained in and around the immediate area.

Members are comprised of all ages and all levels of flying proficiency from beginner to awesome.  Most of our members fly a multitude of airplane designs from gliders to high performance aerobatic models.  Many members prefer to fly on the site lake well others enjoy our landing strip.  Many of our members like to do both.  We are very lucky to be one of the few sites in Canada that have both land and lake flying at the same location.  Many of the aircraft flown at our site are scale or semi-scale in design.  We encourage members to flex their creativity in their designs.

Our club decide in 2015 to give members both new and old the ability to fly helicopters, 3D aircraft and Platform machines in a area totally dedicated to the pilots who enjoy these type of aircraft called the "Upper Meadow".  This area has lots of room for all of these kinds of rotary wing & 3D aircraft and does not conflict with the main flying area.  A small sub committee will be appointed to oversee safety procedures and day to day operations of this area.

 The lake at our site is beautiful, pristine and is approximately 2 million square feet of flying fun and with no impediments.

Our land based runway was recently updated from 60 ft x 223 ft to a runway that is 60 ft x 425 ft to accommodate models that require a longer strip to land on.  This length of runway will be capable to handle all but the largest of models.  The original strip was comprised of dirt and fine gravel and seeded grass.  Our new strip will be covered with turf and should make a gorgeous finished product.

We would like to thank all of our flying friends & buddies, fellow club members and Corporate Sponsors for their generous donations to make this all possible......A big shout out to Rich & Jason !

THANK YOU

As noted on the images above, our site also boasts a open air structure known as the 'Pavilion' to provide pilots a place to get out of the sun or the odd rain shower that we tend to get in B.C. once in a while.
