Hi Paul,
Sorry the club has been limiting the number of people to 12 on the field. That's why members only. I would think public will be back for August aerotow. I hope.

First Saturday of the Month Aerotow for August


We will welcome visitors to the Aerotow on August 1st. We still need face masks when close than 6', but this is better than not flying. Hope to see the Riverside gang.

First Saturday of August Aerotow was a success with the yeoman work of CopterX and his 1/3 scale Pawnee. No glass this month only classic sailplanes. Looking forward to the 5th of September for the next one. Had good lift up high today. Thanks again Paul you saved the day with your towing.

Another great flying session, thank you !


Thank you Jim G, Palomar RC club and Paul Kopp for making yesterdays Palomar Aerotow event work out so well.

Paul's towplane worked flawlessly, the weather was breezy on the ground but oddly calmer at flying height. The result
was as much time flying as you wanted to do.

Also a big thanks to all flyers and visitors who wore face masks, it made socializing and setting up much more like normal times.

best wishes, john s.

Thanks John for the great photos. Special thanks to Paul for his great tows. I flew my Cherokee till I was tired, Lift was very easy to find. Looking forward to the first Sat in Sept when we can do it again.

September Aerotow


Were looking at the first Saturday of the month aerotow on Saturday September 5th at 1030am. Remember a tow pilot and your favorite mask. Or is it the other way?

We are cancelling the aerotow for Saturday the 5th because of a 102-106 prediction. Look here later for the redue.
