Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls,

The Akron Skymasters Control line Association is an AMA chartered model airplane club dedicated to the support of control line model aviation. We embrace all disciplines of sport and competition. Our club is newly formed but our member’s range from new youngsters to old timers, from janitors to PHDs, all with the same goals, the preservation of this great sport. (And lots of fun)

The Akron Skymasters Control line Association would like to invite you to our first annual springtime fun fly and open house. The festivities will begin at 9:00 AM April 16th and 17th 2011 at their new flying site, The MAPS Air Museum 2260 International Parkway, North Canton, Ohio 44720. We will be demonstrating this activity at all levels of expertise, first timers to old pros.

Do not be confused, this is Control Line flying not radio control. For those of you not familiar with control line, our models are tethered. Simply stated they are directly connected to the pilot by a handle and approximately sixty feet of cable. We fly in a contained 120-ft. diameter hemisphere. Entry level control line flying is very affordable.

Come up, down, over and in to see what may be the one of the finest Control line flying sites in the Eastern United States. Three asphalt flying circles for Precision Stunt, Racing, Perky, Carrier, or just practice. Two asphalt circles with speed pylon for FAI Speed or tuning. Two grass circles for Combat, Sport, Stunt, Teaching, or anything you may want to try. We have qualified Instructors and trainers for you to fly! Introductory lessons are free!

Standard admission prices to MAPS Air Museum apply except for members and guest fliers.
