Kid’s Day was a huge success with 102 “kids” taking a turn at flying an RC aircraft. Thanks to all the flight instructors and club members that helped make this event possible. And thanks to all the “kids” that came out to fly.
Learning the basics of flight
Look at me, I’m flying!

Sponsored by us (Miniature Aero Sportsters). The event will be at our club’s ‘Flying Field’ located northeast of DIA on 120th about 9 miles east of Tower Road. Click on ‘MAS info‘ on the right for location details.
Certified Flying Instructors will help you learn how to pilot these fun flying machines. There will be food and refreshments so bring Dad… Heck, bring the whole family.
This crash happened at the Denver R/C Eagles site and was a result of a stuck right aileron. A simple check of the control surfaces before takeoff could have pointed out the aileron issue and a simple fix would have had the model up in the air in no time. A good lesson for all us who fly!
If you are interested in getting into to world of Remote Control Aircraft, there are plenty of great ways to go about doing it. One of the best ways is to come visit our Airfield! On any given weekend you’ll find MAS members willing and able to answer any questions you may have.
MAS allows visitors with the required AMA Membership to fly at the airfield up to 3 times before becoming a MAS member. Please be sure to read all the safety guidelines at the site and use the radio impound as necessary. For details on joining the club, go to the MAS Info link on the right.
