OUTDOOR FLYING SESSIONS

Our most recent member to join our oganization is HAFFA Member John Clark seen above launching his beautiful Arrow which he built from a kit by Guillows.

our next session is — Sept 15th starting at 5:00 pm — Tuesday Night Fun Fly
sunset is 7:30 pm — with Last light at 7:57 pm
Frontier Trail Middle School143rd & Black Bob, Olathe KS

after this fun fly — we will be setting our sights for indoor flying sessions this fall.
First one is scheduled for Sunday Oct 18th — 8:30 am to 3:00 pm.

Come join our group at our flying field in Olathe, Kansas every Tuesday this summer for our OUTDOOR FLYING SESSIONS starting at 6:00 pm and ending when it’s dark.

We have several members that fly hand launched gliders and others that try their luck at wind-up models. This summer we are calling our flying sessions “Fun Flys” which means that they are informal and guests are always welcome.

We could always use extra persons to time airplane flights. You don’t need a special stop watch to record flight times. Most smart phones have a stop watch feature as part of the clock app. Most apps record to a hundredths of a second, which in our setting is a bit overkill—but never-the-less accurate. Or if you own a working stopwatch yourself, put it to good use and learn what we’re all about while having an enjoyable evening of Free Flight.

Below is a Google Map of the Olathe Outdoor Flying Site. The area just to the West of Frontier Trail Middle School is the area we normally use so park just to the East of it in the parking lot. If it appears that no one has shown up—we may have moved our location depending on the wind direction.
