Princeton Flying Tigers R/C Club
Flying Tigers R/C Club
The Flying Tigers RC is a radio controlled airplane club located in Princeton, Minnesota. Our club consists of about 40 members ranging from the beginner to the expert that enjoys flying. Our field moved in May of 2011 so be sure to click the link to view directions to our field.
The Flying Tigers always welcome new members, so if you are new to the area or if you are interested in getting started in R/C flying feel free to contact any of our club officers or members, we would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
The Flying Tigers' official flying season is May through September. During these months, a training program is offered for new members. Advanced pilots donate their time every Thursday night to teach new pilots how to fly. This is a great opportunity for the beginning R/C pilot. You will be taught how to control your plane in the air, proper takeoff and landing techniques, and good safety methods for flying with others.
The Flying Season
Most flying is done in the summer, but it is possible to fly during the winter months. The club has set aside the third Sunday of every month as all season flier dates (weather permitting). The get togethers usually start around noon, and spectators are welcome. Throughout the summer, we have family weekend camping and flying activities.
To fly at our club field, you must have AMA liability insurance. The cost is approximately $60 and that allows you to fly at our field and other club's fields across the U.S. Our dues are $50 a year and this includes the club's monthly newsletter. New members pay $100 and that covers their first 2 years plus training.
The Club Meetings
The Flying Tigers' meetings are currently being held at Madre Loca in Princeton (301 21st Ave. N.) on Friday of April 12th, September 13th and November 8th. The meetings start at 8 p.m. Summer meetings will be on Thursday, May 2nd, Thursday, June 6th, and Thursday, August 1st beginning at 5:30 p.m. If you have any questions, or would like to join, feel free to attend.
