Fly at the Pony Express Field in Ipswich

Some hot news gang!  The brass hats at Stealth Sqdn GHQ have added a couple of summertime meets at a new flying field on Boston’s North Shore. 

The Pony Express Field in Ipswich MA is a well maintained grass field much easier to chase on than Woodsom Farm which will be tall hay in the summer months.

Pony Express is a smaller site than Woodsom Farm and flyers may need to take steps (smaller rubber motors and/or fewer winder turns) to keep models on the field.  

Smaller site meets are often big fun!

A few seasons back, we had a summertime meet on the Collins Foundation airstrip in Stow, MA and that was a really fun event.  Same with the rubber FF meets at the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome. 

So come on out and fly your models on the new Pony Express Field in beautiful Ipswich, MA.  As always, experienced flyers will be on hand to help you with any flight trimming or modeling questions. 

See you there Skyster!

new Location for June Meet!

new events for May Meet!

May outdoor free flight model airplane meets can be among the best – still cool but warming weather, tall but not too tall grass, etc.  We hope you’ll join us for another great day out on Woodsom Farm!

The event roster has been shaken up a bit too.  We’ll be flying Dime Scale, OT Fuselage, Goodyear Mass Launch and the National Air Races in addition to old standbys FAC Scale, Peanut and Embryo Endurance.  So expect to be seeing some new models flying. 

Check out the Flying Aces Club rulebook, or use the Contact Us form on this site if any questions.

We continue to use COVID safety protocols on the field so bring your mask.    Bring your rubber-powered free flight models too and we’ll find an event you can fly in.

See you on May 15 at the Woodsom Farm field!

November 8 Amesbury Meet: Results & Pics

Despite the November date, we had perfect “light and variable winds” conditions for our fourth outdoor contest of the season at Woodsom Farm.

The grass was still soft, the sun still shining warmly, but the foliage was well past-peak.  A full slate of Mass Launch events were flown and the less rigorous FAC Simplified Scale was substituted for the scale-judged Flying Aces Scale event. This freed up time for all to fly – and that folks did – putting up many high and long flights in the light air.

The meet ended a few minutes earlier than usual due to Daylight Savings Time, but all seemed interested in flying more oudoors in coming months, even if on a smaller field and in the cold.

So stay tuned to this site for more opportunities to fly!

See you on the flying field!

The third outdoor contest of the season took place on a gorgeous fall day at Woodsom Farm. The foliage was at its peak, the grass soft and just the right height, and even Covid couldn’t keep flyers’ spirits (or models) down.

Special thanks go out to the many flyers who traveled some distance to fly and compete in the contest. Several new flyers were in attendance and we look forward to seeing them back on the flightline soon. 

We have another outdoor meet scheduled for Sunday November 8 at Woodsom Farm in Amesbury.  Check the date on the Calendar to view the full Contest Flyer.

See you then!

Sept 12 Amesbury Meet: Results & Pics

The second outdoor contest of the season was held September 12, 2020 on the beautiful rolling green fields of Woodsom Farm. 

With Covid 19 still a threat, masks and social distancing protocols were in practice throughout the meet.  This was no great setback to the strong turnout of flyers who came to fly their models and enjoy light breezes and strong thermals this fine autumn day.

Competition was hot as were the thermals.  Unfortunately a number of fine models were lost OOS (out of sight), or over the hill.  The gang will be busy this winter building season rebuilding the fleet! 

We have another outdoor meet scheduled for October 10 at Woodsom Farm in Amesbury.  Look for the Contest Flyer coming soon on this site.

See you then!
