Aeromodelers! I just wanted to let everyone know that we have new hours
at the store.
From now until Christmas Eve, we will be open EVERY DAY! After Christmas,
we will go back to being closed on Mondays, but we will remain open on Sundays
for the remainder of the winter.
I also want to let everyone know that Cody Pickard will be available at the
store Mondays - Saturdays from 10am-4pm. I am super excited to have him
on staff for more hours. I am looking to expand the plane section to give
everyone more choices.
As always, if
there is anything anybody needs, please don't hesitate to let us know.

History of Our Club
Our club was started over 30 years ago and
has had various flying sites over the years. We have had the current field
since 1996 and have been working on improving it a little at a time. By far
the biggest improvement was when we put in the paved runway. The club
membership includes local flyers plus many winter visitors who enjoy the
usually great year-round flying weather.
Our Club is now re-named to: Contreras
Field, home of the Yuma Aeromodelers.
Our field has a paved runway 600 X 60.
Shaded pits for morning and afternoon flying. Hwy 95 and Rifle Range
