Summer Flying Rules Now in Effect

The Golf Cart is back and Summer Flying is here! With summer here we use regular flight line and park in our regular parking lot. For any new 2015 members please ask any member about the field rules before using the site.
As always please be aware of wet spots on the field with the cart.

 

Astrowings Flying Fun!

Few things can compare to the feeling of coming to the field early in the morning, preparing our birds for that first flight. At our power field we live for the moment where the engine purrs, as our creations takes off into the morning sky, flying over our beautiful field. The hobby of building and flying r/c model airplanes can be joyful, thrilling and rewarding. Come join us!

AstroWings is proud to be involved in the community. Over the past 20 years the club has donated over $90,000 between the Special Olympics and the Boy Scouts of America with the help of our local community, other RC clubs, and RC suppliers/retailers. We support and help raise money for charity through our annual Fun Fly. This year the club will be focusing on building a relationship with our local Boy Scout troops.
