SAM CHAPTER 1779 "OLD STONE FORT FLYERS"
Last years Fun-Fly was a very successful safe event and we plan to do equally well this year. Below are links to previous years events with some great photos. Instructors will be available to give some hands on flying instructions to as many kids and adults that would like to try their hand at Radio Control aircraft as we can possibly accomodate! Come join us! Bring your RC planes or just come watch the great flying!

Our fourth annual Model Airplane Demonstrations, Fun-Fly and Swap Meet was held today. Thanks to event director Drew Thomas and wife Kathy for the many hours they both put into making this so successful! Thanks to all the club members that chipped in both time and money! And a really big thanks to our safety crew Malcom Creamer, Chris Lord, Keith Christian and the Safety Coordinator Tracy Schory. Their efforts made it a smooth and "SAFE" event.
Larry Hultmann brought his 17 foot wingspan Fokker DR-1 Triplane. It did not fly because of a blown engine but it was still a really "big" attraction. Larry did fly his Thunderbolt and a fine Birddog. Barry Raborn flew his BAE Hawk Jet again as well as his beautiful blue F9-F Panther! Gary Moxley flew his 60% L-4 Birddog and a fine looking Piper Pawnee. Thanks to Larry, Gary, and Barry for helping us make this one fine event.
Dave Seigert of the Dallas.Ft. Worth Wing of the Commemorative Air Force flew in a restored 1940 PT-17 Stearman and offered rides for a donation to the CAF. Dave flew all day long and with Drew Thomas as a front seat passenger made two low level passes of our flying site. Needless to say it was truly a thrill for all! We hope to see Dave again next year - perhaps with some friends from CAF! Thanks Dave!
The event is held as an appreciation day for the residents of the City of Nacogdoches and the surrounding area. It was obvious from the attendance and the many applauses after your flights that they did very much enjoy the day. Enjoy the photos and if you have some of your own that you would like to include send them to me.

ABOUT OUR CLUB
Our flying site is located in beautiful East Texas at the A.L. Mangham Jr. Regional Airport in Nacogdoches. The club is chartered by AMA and is also a chapter of the Society of Antique Modelers. The club runway is an asphalt strip 75' by 540'. Our club recently completed building a 16' by 48' covered area with a concrete pad and a 16' by 12' storage shed for our club supplies and tractor. Clean restrooms are available in the Pilot's Lounge so bring your family along for a great time. The club has several qualified instructors with trainer planes and buddy boxes. We can provide a hands on flying experience to anyone of any age wanting to learn how to fly.
Club members fly both fuel and electric radio control airplanes and helicopters. Several members are building u-control airplanes with the intent of reviving the type of flying that many of us remember as our first exposure to model airplanes.
