Outdoor Flying Sessions are held the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month this summer and fall. They are held in Olathe, just west of the Frontier Trail Middle School in the activity fields located at 143rd and Blackbob Road.  The address is: 15357 W. 143rd St., Olathe, KS. (Scroll down this page for a Google map to plan your route there.)

We usually start between 6:30 pm and 7 pm and fly until dark. There is no charge to attend. See our Upcoming Events Page for exact days for the Outdoor Flying Events.


Gollywock in flight

For the year 2017 it has been decided to have 4 categories of outdoor model aircraft competitions:

1/2 Gollywock

Hand Launched Thermic Glider

Jet Catapult Launch Glider

AMA Catapult Launch Glider

Information on the drawings and or the kits needed to build these projects will be forthcoming.

Flight times will be recorded each session and the winner of each category will be announced at the end of the season. Good luck guys!

Below is a Google Map of the flying site the club uses. The area just to the left of Frontier Middle School is the area we use so park just to the right of it. If you click on the “View larger map” you can use this map like any other Google map to plan your route. See you there!
