Flying Before Hurricane Ian: 09/27/22

With Hurricane Ian approaching the gulf coast of Florida, five members and two guests decided to take advantage of the low winds and cool temperatures to meet for a day of flying.

As usual, many flights were performed by those present, but the highlight of the day, as always, was getting a student into the air for the first time. Today, under the supervision of instructor Peter Fynn, Mike Kirkpatrick flew for the first time. Mike did really well and performed five flights with Peter's Turbo Timber Evolution. We hope that Mike will become a club member and continue to fly with us.

Due to very low winds and moderate temperatures, five club members got together on short notice to enjoy a perfect day for flying at our field.

2022 National Aviation Day: 08/19/22

Nine of our club members set up a display of model aircraft for visitors at the 2022 National Aviation Day at the county's regional airport in Manteo. This event is hosted annually by the First Flight Society to celebrate Orville Wright's birthday and included a collection of full-size aircraft and displays by various aviation-related organizations.

Dare County Radio Control Flyers participated by educating the public about the club, the Academy of Model Aeronautics, and the hobby through a static display of model aircraft and a number of flight demonstrations.

2022 National Model Aviation Day: 08/13/22

Eight club members and two guests met at our flying field to celebrate the AMA's annual National Model Aviation Day.

Flight operations were a bit limited due to high wind gusts, however our members used their time at the field to paint our new storage shed and move our windsock to its new location on the western side of the field. Following these efforts, attendees were treated to a lunch consisting of soft drinks, chips, and hot dogs that were prepared using the club's new grill.

Pilot's Breakfast: 07/30/22

Philip Garey, Grant Dick, Robert Yanacek, Stephen Yanacek, Rusty Kennedy, Charlie Doss, and Jim Davis met for breakfast today at the Jolly Roger restaurant in Kill Devil Hills. Of special note is that one of our members, Rusty Kennedy, came down from Poquoson, Virginia to discuses his role at the Academy of Model Aeronautics, and as chairman at the Academy of Model Aeronautics Foundation.


Freedom Fly: 07/04/22

Although wind conditions were not ideal, Jim Davis, Robert Yanacek, Richard Boyd, Stephen Yanacek, and Peter Fynn met at our field for a few hours of flying to celebrate Independence Day.

A number of flights were flown by Jim Davis with his Mini Pulse, Stephen Yanacek with his AeroScout S, and Richard Boyd with his Apprentice S before heading home looking forward to better flying conditions next weekend.

Club Fly: 06/25/22

With temperatures in the mid-70s, Robert Yanacek, Stephen Yanacek, Richard Boyd, Peter Fynn, and Philip Garey met at our field to fly and enjoy the beautiful day. They were also joined at the field by Steve Musil, who came to give radio control model aviation a try.

Flight operations included many sorties by all including Richard Boyd conducting a maiden flight with his new Carbon Z-Cub SS and Peter Fynn thrilling everyone with a maiden flight of his gas-powered Stampe-Vertongen SV.4 biplane. Peter's second flight with his biplane was even more exciting when he performed a textbook "dead-stick" landing after his fuel became exhausted.

The highlight of everyone's day was, of course, letting our guest perform his first flight. Under Stephen Yanacek's instruction, Steve Musil performed two flights with Philip Garey's AeroScout S and successfully landed both times! We hope to see him back at our field in the near future.
