Next Fun Fly = March 23rd, and FAA Stuff


Happy Wet February Guys!

Just a little reminder for our next Fun Fly that’s in five weeks from now; should be enough time to dry out a bit, and let the Landing Zone get even thicker with weeds and grass. Please note the addition to the schedule of the F3F race at Torrey Pines in April (below), with a backup date - this is a Sunday event.

Another note of interest: You all probably received an email from AMA recently to register with the FAA. It’s call the Interim Final Rule and can be found here; https://www.faa.gov/news/updates/?newsId=93045

There are two ways to register, and it’s really an easy process – takes 5 minutes, costs $5, and is good for 3 years.

Just create an account here: https://faadronezone.faa.gov/#/

Choose Part 336. This choice registers the pilot with one number that’s applied to all of your planes. The other choice is Part 107, which registers every plane that you have at $5ea. Can get quite pricey.

Join us on 3/23, then afterwards we’ll meet at AleSmith for a beer or two.

• Mar 23rd – Followed by Happy Hour @ AleSmith Brewery
• Apr 7th Sunday/ April 14th Backup day – Torrey Pines Classic F3F Race. Open to all, register on the Vault.
• May 25th – Foamies
• June 1st - Katie Martin Int’l Tribute – Not a Gulls Only Fun Fly event, but International Event
• July 27th – TWF/ PNF – that’s Twisty Wings & Pointy Nosed birds
• Aug 24th – Scaleies
• Sept 21st – Old School Vintage/ Crunchies
• Nov 23rd – No Shopping Saturday

Best Regards!

Great Fun Fly today....


I heard yesterday was a great day but had a commitment that kept from the bluff until sunset for a quick but satisfying 15 sunset session. Got too dark for my comfort.

Today was a gift from god. My wife was out with her sisters so I had the morning to do as I pleased.

Got to the bluff around 8:32 Marty z was already there (since 6:30). Remaidened Godzilla in her new colors, flew the Zero and ended with the energic at noon as the wind was waning.

As soon as I left the wind built back up.

Good to see Will out visiting.

Fun Fly - March 23rd


Hi Gulls,

Just a reminder that next Saturday the 23rd is our next scheduled Fun Fly. Afterwards, we’re headed to AleSmith Brewery for a Happy Hour.

If you haven’t checked in at the Gliderport by signing the yearly waivers, please do so, and please make sure that you check in for the day for the rest of you.

See you all out there – it’s a, ”Run-What-You-Brung” day as far as what type of plane to bring.

May 25th & June 1st - Back-to-Back Saturday Events


Hi Gulls,

Just a reminder that the following Saturday, the 25th, is our next scheduled Fun Fly, it’s all about Foamies. Bring an Ahi, Alula, Radian, KA-8, or whatever other foam plane that you have!

The next Saturday after that, June 1st, is the Katie Martin International Tribute. This is always a special treat as there will be well over a 100 planes out there. Let’s be safe and limit the number of planes in the air to no more than seven, and if you’re not flying, please pitch in and be a spotter. We want this to be a safe, fun place for everyone!

If you haven’t checked in at the Gliderport by signing the yearly waivers, please do so, and please make sure that you check in for the day for the rest of you.

See you all out there, and blue sky’s!

Looking forward to this month's TWF/ PNF event...Mike F just delivered Jester #19 in time and I'm hoping to resurrect a 21 year old Ken Stuhr V-Max to bring as well (been saving a bag 'o parts to rebuild from a high speed impact at Yorba back in '89...)

Fun-Fly, July 27th, TWF & PNF Twisty Wings and Pointy Nosed birds


Hi Gulls,

Just a reminder that the following Saturday, July 27th, is our next scheduled Fun Fly; it’s all about Twisty Wing and Pointy Nosed planes! Or, just bring whatever plane that you have!

If you haven’t been in to Torrey Pines Gliderport in a while, it’s time to come out. The paraglider folks are behaving so much better lately. In other words, their rules of one-in-the-window, and alerting us RC’ers that they’re flying through with a whistle or yell has improved immensely. Let’s be safe and limit the number of planes in the air to no more than seven, (7) and if you’re not flying, please pitch in and be a spotter. We want this to be a safe, fun place for everyone! Also, check your battery health, antenna orientation, (90 degrees from one another) all connections, and flying surface orientation to your transmitter input before launching.

If you haven’t checked in at the Gliderport by signing the yearly waivers, please do so, and please make sure that you check in for the day for the rest of you.

See you all out there, and blue sky’s!

• July 27th – TWF/ PNF – that’s Twisty Wings & Pointy Nosed birds
• Aug 24th – Scaleies
• Sept 21st – Old School Vintage/ Crunchies
• Nov 23rd – No Shopping Saturday

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the reminder: Pointy Nose and Twisty Wing good times. Your positive remarks about flying Torrey are true. Things have really changed for the best, 7 days a week! See you there.
