Default San Diego Heli Fun Fly - June 11 - 13, 2021

Yes, you're reading this correctly - the Palomar RC Flyers Club is planning on hosting the San Diego Heli Fun Fly on June 11 thru 13, 2021. We believe that the fumes from nitro heli fuel combined with the downward rotorwash will push that pesky Coronovirus out of the area. (OK, just kidding on that last comment. There's no scientific evidence that nitro fumes will kill the Coronavirus but we can all hope.).

Relevant details:

Date: Friday June 11 thru Sunday June 13, 2021. Participants can start arriving on Thursday June 10 after 12:00 noon. We will close down the field on Sunday at noon.

Location: Palomar RC Flyers "Johnson Field" located on Pankey Rd. in Fallbrook, CA (northern San Diego). The field is located off I-15 and Hwy. 76 (Pala Rd.). The main flying area will be along the 600' airplane runway and additional flying available at the Heli Field. Both areas have a covered pit area. No electricity is available so bring your generators.

Other:
RVs and trailers are allowed but there is no water/electric/sewage hookups so you have to be self-contained.
Spotlight night flying will happen but we aren't planning on bringing in light towers.
No pre-registration this year as we need to be flexible due to the pandemic. Registration will happen onsite during the event. You must be a currently registered AMA member to fly. Spectators can attend for free.

Keep following this thread for additional details but mark your calendars for June 11-13 for the San Diego Heli Fun Fly.

Hope to see you there!

Default 2021 San Diego Heli Fun Fly

Its been a couple of years since we've had a fun fly (due to the dreaded Covid-19 thang) but we're kicking it into high gear in 2021. I know a lot of you are ready to shake off the cobwebs so this years San Diego Heli Fun Fly is the place to do that. It's also a great time to reconnect with your old friends who you haven't seen in a while and to also make new friends.

If you've never been to a heli fun fly or are nervous about flying at one, this is the place to start. You'll meet plenty of cool pilots who are ready and willing to help. Everyone at the fun fly was new once also so there's plenty of good help available. Also, if you need helpful advice on setups pilots will be willing to help out with suggestions and recommendations.

The Palomar RC Flyers field is large and there are two areas we'll be flying on. First, we have the entire 600' asphalt runway that'll be marked off into separate flight stations. At the heli field there will be a space for testing out new helis and fine tuning. Both areas have a covered pit area with tables.

Hope to see you there!

Default Field Conditions

The field conditions for this years San Diego Heli Fun Fly will be excellent. We have had a more extensive field maintenance program this past year and one of our members has been regularly mowing down the weeds in the flight areas, parking lots, and adjacent areas. That means to areas where you guys are bringing in your RVs and trailers won't have to contend with high weeds and brush.

Also, the Palomar RC Flyers Board of Directors have authorized a complete repaving of the main flight line. Hopefully by the time the Fun Fly starts we'll all have a flat, smooth flight line with new striping in place. Thanks to the BoD for supporting this!

Our famous Fun Fly chef, "Smokin" Joe Villareal has agreed to fire up his bbq again this year for us. He always provides the best in Fun Fly meals.

Default Field Update

Things are really starting to come together now that we're less than a month away. The main runway where most of the activities will be taking place is being resealed this week. It'll be smooth like Tennessee whiskey for the Fun Fly. We're also looking at bringing in a big tractor with a brush hog to really clear out the weeds in the RV parking areas and other areas. The light towers will be delivered on the 10th.

Some things to know:
1). No open fires allowed due to the fire danger. No fireworks, no firearms.
2). Dry camping is allowed. Porta-potties and handwash stations are provided. Pick up your trash, dumpsters are provided.
3). We do have rattlesnakes, ticks, and ground squirrels. Watch where you step.
4). Pilots Briefings will be held on Saturday and Sunday morning.
5). Be aware that the freeway is CLOSER than you think.
6). Alcohol and other recreational drugs and RC helis aren't compatible. If you're suspected of being under the influence you'll be pulled from the flight line.
7). All pilots must have a Spotter. Spotters: know what you're responsibilities are.
8). HAVE FUN!
