The SLRCFA Board of Directors
The February meeting will be an Open-House / Builder's Clinic at Paul Appelbaum's home. Paul is the scratch-builder of the famous C-17 jet.
Even if you weren't at the November 2017 meeting, you'll love this clinic. Paul worked building composite experimental aircraft for many years, including a stint with Burt Rutan. We covet his skills, and now a few of them can get transferred to us...
Thanks or being part of the best RC club in the Midwest!
P.S. the rotator image on our home page is one of Paul's scratch-built jets...
The March meeting is all about what fun we've had the past year, or planes Santa brought us over the Winter.

April will have us building CombatONEs for the club meeting. We'll get one done from scratch so you can see how to build your own, and we'll schedule a group build for a Saturday for all who show up and pony up for a group parts purchase. Of course, we'll demo some CombatONE flying for everyone, perhaps some night flying with those glowing wings!

We be campin' and we be flyin'. Nothings more beautiful than SLRCFA field in Spring with planes in the air at dusk or in the morning, so we're putting them both together. Come out Saturday and fly. Come out Sunday morning and fly. If you choose, pitch at tent or camper and stay over night!
Be our guest if you're not an SLRCFA member. Just bring your AMA card and you're good-to-go.

Just an FYI... many folks will be attending Joe Nall Week in South Carolina at the Triple Tree Aerodrome.
If you want to learn about flying with first-person view (FPV) from an expert, and avoid wasting your time getting into this aspect of the hobby, this is your night. Jonathon Hendrickson, who owns his own drone photography/video company, will be on-hand to help us understand the concepts behind FPV.

From the spirit-airshow.com - December 2017:
CHESTERFIELD, Mo., Dec. 5, 2017 – Today, in celebration of the Boeing F/A-18 Hornet’s 40th Anniversary, the Spirit of St. Louis Air Show & STEM Expo announced the event would be held in both 2018 and 2019, with the US Navy Blue Angels headlining the 2019 event.
“2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the F/A-18 Hornet’s first flight,” said John Bales, president of the Spirit of St. Louis Air Show committee and Spirit of St. Louis Airport director. “2018 will kick off two years of airshows in St. Louis, celebrating these made-in-St. Louis aircraft, while also thrilling attendees with phenomenal performances from other historic and modern aircraft.”
The 2018 Spirit of St. Louis Air Show, scheduled for October 13-14, 2018, will feature the Canadian CF-18 demo team. Also joining the event for the first time will be the USAF F-16 Fighting Falcon demonstration team. These two dynamic teams will be joined by Skip Stewart in his aerobatic biplane and various other tactical air demonstrations.
The 2019 Spirit of St. Louis Air Show, scheduled for September 7-8, 2019, will be headlined by the US Navy Blue Angels in their made-in-Missouri Boeing F/A-18s.
Both airshows will be held at the Spirit of St. Louis Airport. Previous air shows had been held there in 2014 and 2016.
Additionally, in a change from previous years, all tickets will be sold online only.
“The event will also feature our phenomenal STEM expo on the ground, and will continue to inspire our next generation of leaders to take science, technology, engineering and math to the next level – and beyond,” Bales said.
Additional air show details will be announced in the coming months. For more information visit www.spirit-airshow.com.
