Scheduled Electric E-vents for 2017

Tuesdays, Skymasters' Indoor Flying 2017 Season
Ultimate Soccer Arenas, 867 South Blvd., Pontiac, MI 48341
10 a.m. -1 p.m.

Thanks from Skymasters:
To all the Pilots who assisted us each week in setting up the field, working at the registration table, helping out new pilots, and then tear down at the end of each day. It takes a lot to put on this event for 25 weeks and it could not be done without all of you.

To our sponsors - The Prop Shop, Nankin Hobby Shops, Flightline Hobby, PMAC, Iris Cafe, Old Detroit Bar and Grille, and M & B Graphics, Lake Orion.

To Ultimate Soccer Arenas the best indoor flying venue in Michigan.

From what I can tell, Skymasters has the largest weekly indoor flying event in the country averaging over 70 R/C Pilots flying per week. That's over 12,000 pilot flying sessions since indoor flying began at Ultimate in 2009. Wow! Special Thanks to all those pilots, You make this a GREAT EVENT!

NOTE: even though the winter indoor sessions will end this week (April 11) we will continue fly this spring at Ultimate through the end of April, and maybe longer, if interest remains high enough for a cost of $8 per session for all pilots.

May 13, Saturday, EFO flying meeting, 10:00 a.m., Midwest RC Society 7 Mi. Rd. Flying Field. Everyone with an interest is welcome. Proof of AMA membership required to fly.
