Tillamook’s 2013 Fun Fly is Saturday August 31st which is on Labor Day weekend. We will fly radio control airplanes, helicopters and multi-rotors at the North Coast RC Modelers’ airfield 7.5 miles south of Tillamook Oregon. Everyone is invited to participate and there will be plenty of chairs for spectators. No entry fees. No special rules or requirements other than the basic AMA stuff. It starts at 8:30 but people will arrive throughout the morning and will leave throughout the afternoon.
What models can I bring? Are flights limited?
Bring any variety, size or type of RC aircraft. The airfield’s 300×80 foot grass runway is suitable for almost everything. We can set up a glider winch for motorless thermal gliders if it happens to be a good thermal day. Normally the event is not overcrowded so giant sized airplanes and helicopters should be able to fly a couple 3-D flights while having the sky all to themselves. There will be no mandatory flight patterns but we recommend announcing runway approaches and crossings, and maybe have a spotter help watch for air traffic if the sky becomes crowded.
What about food and amenities?
Some coffee and donuts 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, we might have a generator for electricity. There is no overnight parking.
Where is it?
It is 7.5 miles south of Tillamook Oregon along the west side of Highway 101, behind a farm at street address 13990 Highway 101. Signs along the Highway tell you which driveway. (map) (satellite) (panorama)
