Greetings!

My name is Vic Duniec and I have been elected as the The Flying Aces Pilots Association (FAPA) President for upcoming year. I would like to welcome all current and prospective members to join us for our club meeting noted above. I am honored to be asked to lead FAPA and am grateful for the opportunity to continue to keep the club on its current path of safety, camaraderie, mentor-ship, growth and most importantly fun.

This club, and our field, is one of the best kept secrets in the area. We have some ideas on how improve the value of membership to you and to improve your experience at Waymer Aeromodeler Field.

Please come out to join us and meet your new club officers on Thursday, November 7th, at 7:00 pm.

Sincerely,

Vic Duniec

FAPA President

Our War Bird flyin was on September 21st. It was a success and the attendees had a great time.

A note about WACAMA. The leadership of WACAMA has transitioned to Anthony Durrah. Please use the WACAM web page to renew or join the Flying Aces when you get your park pass. As of 1 October if you are joining and NOT renewing you get the rest of this year and all of next year for the price of next year. If you are a non flying person rejoining or joining for the first time please contact the club treasurer.

Please remember the park is a no smoking area.

To fly at Waymer you need AMA and a Park Pass. There are dates and times this is waived, Wednesdays and 10-2 Sundays. You still need to know and follow the rules. To fly any R/C vehicle over .55lb anywhere in the U.S. (even your back yard) you are required to register with the FAA. If you registered when this first became effective three years ago it may say it’s time to renew on your card. When I went to renew mine it now says it expires 12/12/2020. Also remember those flying FPV need FCC licenses. While we have never enforced these please remember they are federal laws.

Lastly, thank you for allowing me to represent you as President and Treasurer this past year. Congratulations to the new officers.
Please fly safe, please be courteous,
Outgoing President- Evan Doughty

Please be aware that there is a difference between the WACAMA Park Pass and Flying Aces R/C Club Membership. To fly at Waymer field a Park Pass is required and AMA membership is required to apply for the Park Pass. FAPA Club Membership is not required to fly at Waymer. You can join FAPA at the same time you join or renew your WACAMA Park Pass for an additional $20.
