Welcome to what we hope is another great year of flying and driving at our local AMA field! We’re off to a great start of the flying season and will be scheduling open house of the season soon! We would like to talk about a couple of things we learned in the past year and our plans for this year!
Last year was an eye opening experience for all! We learned pretty quickly the road ahead of us needed some pot holes filled, figuratively and literally! We’ve started off the year with a bang when Jeremiah and Scott made it their personal mission to expand the RC track. So far we’re about 90% complete with the upgrade and will soon invite everyone out to come try the new experience. Thanks to Robert and Benjamin for giving the pavilion roof a much needed paint job!
Our plans for the future include finish the runway and preparing our crawler track. We have decided that since we have taken up the runway, we will be expanding it’s size to accommodate larger aircraft or inexperienced pilots! This has been a major undertaking and we are continue to ask for assistance whether be through donations of money and/or time. We’ve had many members and non-members off up equipment and material which has not gone unnoticed! This being the first official year of Lynchburg RC & FPV running the Truck Body, we hope to be super productive so that we can all get back to doing what we love most, flying and driving! We appreciate your ongoing patience and support!
This is an update from our last newsletter!
As you can see, we’ve been busy little beavers! We still have additional things to be done, but we’re making great progress with the help of some pretty awesome members!
We currently have around 40 official members that have signed up through the website. If you haven’t signed up yet, please do so! There is a selection for guest if you’re just looking around, but we would love to have you as a full member. We have several programs if you can’t afford the membership. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Lynchburg RC & FPV never wants to stop you from flying just because times are tough.
Keep an eye on the Facebook page and our event calendar! We will always do our best to let you guys know of events we’re doing or places you can help! Let’s make this an amazing summer!
