A nice upgrade to the Bayou City Flyers clubhouse was the attachment of the club LOGO sign during the July Swap Meet. Thanks to Max, Gerry and Rudy for helping. Hope everyone enjoys it and that it provides both advertising to the general public, visiting flyers and others along with a little pride of membership. It also make a nice background for photos! If you have not flown at Scobee Field please do COME FLY WITH US and enjoy this great hobby and sport!
Starting the New Year off right the Bayou City Flyers club newsletter returns with the effort of our new Newsletter Editor - Joe Chauffe. What is the NOTAM? The FAA uses the acronym for "Notice To Airmen". It's a notice containing a wealth of information that may include facility changes, procedures, hazards, etc.
It is also the name of the club Newsletter. Historically when the club was the Alief Air Force the newsletter was called the AAF Flyer.
Bayou City Flyers field has recently had the remaining open pilot stations fenced for enhanced safety, and a new Field Etiquette sign posted as a reminder for both veteran and new R/C flyers at the field on proper field manners for both operations and safety. If you have not flown at Scobee Field please do COME FLY WITH US and enjoy this great hobby and sport!
IF YOU ARE FLYING DRONES, PLEASE RESTRICT YOUR FLYING TO THE HELICOPTER FLYING AREA. THERE IS NO FLYING FROM THE COVERED CANOPY AREA OR UNDERNEATH THE CANOPY FOR OBVIOUS SAFETY REASONS! IF YOU CANNOT FOLLOW THESE RULES YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE FACILITY. ENFORCEMENT OF THESE AND OTHER SAFETY RULES WILL BE HANDLED BY THE PRECINCT SHERIFF’S OFFICE IF NECESSARY! HELP EVERYONE BY FOLLOWING THE SAFETY PROCEDURES AND ENJOYMENT OF THE HOBBY. WE APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT.+

Look forward to better next year. Please plan now to join us as a flyer, volunteer, spectator, or all three in 2022! This has been a fantastic event in the past. Usually hot but with good […]
