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.
