New Years Day 2017

Jay Clark

A loop and a roll, that’s it. Then you’ll have a lucky year.
— One of the founding club officers who had a crazy idea

4th of July, 2016

Tehachapi Crosswinds thanks Al & Cathy Hansen for their help with the 2016 MEFI event.  They received wing rib-shaped plaques and enjoy 4th of July Ribs by club president Scott Wyatt.


New Year's Day 2016 First Flight - The Intrepid

New Year's Day 2016 First Flight - Good luck often comes at a price, such as cold windy flying days.  Great job, Tehachapi Crosswinds!


Thank you to the officers of 2015:  Left to right, Mason Hutchison, Melissa Metz, Matt Reed, John Sturgeon, & Bob Golk.  


2015 Tehachapi Crosswinds RC Club Fun Fly

July 4, 2015 Fun Fly Event participants.  What an enjoyable day!

Timed Flight competition at the 2015 Fun Fly. No timers allowed, try to fly a two-minute flight.

A club favorite, the "Taxi-Fly-Taxi" event was quite popular.  Eat a cracker, when you can whistle, then you can take off, fly a course, then land and stop in the box.  It's surprisingly difficult to whistle after eating a single cracker!  Try it!

Bomb Drop competition in full swing.  Note the "bomb" ribbon released from the cup attached to the top of the fuselage.

2015 Fun Fly Event winners:  Bri Brubaker, Eric Brubaker, and Dave Metz.  Way to go!  Special thanks to Brubaker Models for donating the prize medals!

2015 Club VP, Matt Reed, finds a new project!

Dave Metz takes 3rd in the total points tally of the competition. Congrats, Dave!

“If you can dream, you can do it. And the only way to fail is to quit”
— Dick Rutan

A New Year's Day tradition, all of these pilots performed their lucky loop and roll.  It was a great day for all!  Tehachapi Crosswinds wishes good luck for the rest of the year!

Kent Beal and Bill Fisher enjoyed the first flight of 2015.  They took off simultaneously at 12:15AM to claim first flight of the year together.  And they roughed the 16°F, perfectly calm night to do it.
