The 2013 Tillamook Fun Fly is on Saturday August 31, 2013 which is Labor Day weekend. We will fly radio control airplanes, helicopters and multi-rotors at North Coast RC Modelers’ airfield 7.5 miles south of Tillamook Oregon. Everyone is invited to participate. There will be plenty of chairs for spectators. No entry fees. No special rules or requirements other than the standard AMA. It starts at 8:30 and ends at sundown with people arriving throughout the morning and leaving throughout the afternoon.
What models can I bring? Are flights limited?
You bring any variety, size or type of RC aircraft. The airfield and grass runway are suitable for almost anything but float takeoffs and ridge soaring. We can set up a glider winch for motorless thermal gliders if it happens to be a good thermal day. We do not expect the event to be very crowded so the largest 3-D type planes and helicopters might be able to get in some solo flights and have the sky all to themselves for a little while, but if a large crowd of pilots shows up then time slots for solo 3-D flights will have to be queued or somewhat limited. We recommend pilots announce your runway approaches, announce runway crossings and assist with spotting in order to help prevent collisions. No mandatory flight pattern is planned, other than not flying directly over spectator areas.
What about food and amenities?
Some coffee and donuts and will be set out in the morning, with hot dogs, buns, chips and bottled water at noon for a free self-serve lunch. We will have a grill available if you want to bring something different to cook for your lunch. Lunch tables, setup tables, run-up stands and plastic chairs will be available. There is a toilet on-site, but no electricity and no overnight parking.
Where is it?
It is 7.5 miles south of Tillamook Oregon along the west side of Highway 101, on a farm at street address 13990 Highway 101. Signs along the Highway tell you which driveway. (map) (satellite) (airfield info)
