Our AMA sanctioned air show was Saturday February 25, 2017.

Please help support our AMA gold Leader Club - Yuma Aeromodelers RC Contreras Field.

A good number of Club members came out to the field on March 11th to welcome cadets from the local Civil Air Patrol squadron to what was billed as CAP Day, '17.

001

Following a "welcome aboard" from Ron Knittle, a discussion was led by Don Hoyt on how an airplane is structured and flown. Later, an even dozen cadets and a couple of dads were treated to buddy box flight experiences.  Buddy Box instructors included Dennis Lally, Jim Hollingsworth, Don Runnels, Billy Rose, and Dale Hoke (radio controlled box kite!!)

Russ Verbael and Dave Bartholomew cooked up 50 hot dogs and served ice cold sodas for the enthusiastic cadets, their buddy box flight instructors, and club members bringing display aircraft and good will to the gathering.

007     009

The program ended with Norm Booth discussing float flying and demonstrating his recovery boat launch procedures.
