I definitively was inspired by the Excellent Ohio international E-Jet event. This one is much more low key. Our club mate and friend Bill Nickel will cook pancake for breakfast + steak sandwich for lunch. Our club is located in a gorgeous site in the country with a nice paved runway...Now we have to wait until the snow melt and I hope "dame nature sera clémente"
Happy new year

Hello Kevin and Chris,
~ 620 miles It's almost only Highway very easy drive.
For travelers we are planning to be able to fly Saturday and Sunday.
It's not a very long runway, good for my Electra, short for the Mirage and 1/8 F16 . The grass is short and good for landing (when not wet!) or take off.
In May the corn is not a problem
We will have some Jets donate by Model by John....
I'm planning around 25+ pilots from our club and from Quebec and Toronto should be lot of fun!

Only Ten minutes away from the field is Howard Johnsons Hotel Kemptville

For those not from around the Rideau RC Flyers site you can find a Howard Johnson Hotel in the village of Kemptville about a 10 min drive from the field.

From Kemptville you get on the 416 going towards Ottawa and get off on the Rogers Stevens Dr exit.


You can find 4 B & B's in the village of Manotick just a few minutes out from our flying site


The flying field has room for overnight Campers - Note the field has no running water or electricity.

The view from Here! - New field improvements

Yes thats a modern way-cool environment friendly solar powered DC charging station with room for 4 outlets.

Recently this fall we also took out the front cedar hedge for new pilot stations using a clear plexy-glass fence - "great for viewing the runway from the Chateau's porch.
