Attend one of the open-to-the-public radio controlled aircraft events (9am to dusk the third Saturday of the month in July, August and September) and you’ll see a miniature air show. Or, if you’re interested in trying the hobby, show up at 9am any Sunday -- that’s when they have instructors on hand to let you try your hand at flying one of their airplanes. Of course, you can also contact them to arrange for a visit or to join the non-profit club and utilize their large flying field in Wheeler. The airfield consists of a 465-foot grass runway, a shelter and portable toilets.
