It's more than a hobby, it's a career path !
We are a youth oriented club. We love to teach kids (young and old) how to fly, and in the process we teach a bit of flight physics, electronics, chemistry, and even meteorology. Come on out and enjoy the company and mentoring of our highly experienced membership and learn how to fly.

Our normal entrance off Naranja Drive is CLOSED.
During construction in the park we have been asked to use the temporary
NORTH entrance off TANGERINE RD.
Take Tangerine Rd to N. Musette Drive, go 200 feet and squeeze between the barriers and
drive down the dirt road to the north end of the field.
