Warbirds of any era! Vintage we classify scale models from the 50’s and before. We also classify the stik a vintage RC plane for this event BUT only to include all members, Scale planes take precedence.

This event will not be advertised, nor will any fees be charged and it is classified as a “Fly-In” Neighboring club members and flying buddies can be invited in person, so please extend these invites.

Few of our members might also fly a Jet or two, please note to speak to me if you are planning to fly a jet if I have not done so before so that we can establish proper proficiencies are adhered to and inform ATC.

As I mentioned, Warbird and Vintage will take precedence in the air, when there are gaps other planes can fly.

Missing Man Formaton Flight in honour of Sahaun Davey

Missing Man Formaton Flight in honour of Sahaun Davey

Shaun Davey was given the gift of life, and recently had to give it back. This is hard. But Shaun was a happy man who led a happy life and for this we as his freinds are grateful. Shaun first got ill in February 2016. When the cancer was diagnosed, it was terminal, but Shaun decided to be joyful about having had a full life, rather than sad about having to die. Amazingly, how his outlook worked for us.

In spite of his illness, Shaun from time to time visited the club, still enjoyed a flight or two, but most important, still wanted to mingle with his friends. Shaun will be remebered for his dedication and love for the hobby. He spent most of his time helping others than actually flying himself.

Shaun is at peace now. And we will miss our friend at the club. To Desiree and the family, be assured of our most sincere condolences and prayers.
