About Us

       Our club was AMA Chartered in 1977 with 25 members present.  We are located in the beautiful foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range at about 1200 feet elevation.  The nearest cities are Auburn and Grass Valley.  We average an annual membership of about 30 members.

     We fly gas, nitro and electric powered aircraft over a club members property.  It's a nice grass strip with enough overfly area for large scale aircraft.  We do limit the number of aircraft in the air at a time and we monitor the loudness of aircraft to keep peace with the neighbors.

      We try our hands at flying indoors in a small school gym one evening a week during the school year. The room gets so much smaller when the walls are painted!

       Our flight instructors will and can teach almost anyone to fly, even an exchange student from France.
