First Flight of the Year!

First Flight of the Year!

  • Tehachapi Crosswinds Flying Field (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Every year, Tehachapi Crosswinds RC Club members gather at the field to make their lucky first flight of the year.  Eat your black eyed peas, save one, then come out for at least one flight (hopefully more), all for good luck!  Once airborne, all you have to do is a loop and a roll.  This is a rain, shine, or wind event.  If it's too windy, get brave and embrace it.... just fly!

A group photo will be taken and you'll go down in history as one of the brave.  If you don't fly but are there, stand back, let the pilots through, there are photos to be taken.

We'll see you loop and roll!

These brave souls can call themselves pilots.  Yes, they performed the loop and roll on the first day of the year, even in the cold and wind.  Stand back, everyone, these are heros, true & hardened.

Just like Saturday Night Lights!

Even if you don't have a night plane, this is still a great time, come out and join us!  At sunset!

An evening and night time gathering of hearty fliers, this event promises to be as fun as can be had at our flying field.  Bring your night-ready aircraft and join us for an informal gathering of night-flying and howling at the moon and watching the Tehachapi City Firework Show!  In the past, these events have been extremely fun and social.  We invite fliers and their light-laden models, their families & friends, and the curious who just wants to know "what IS that in the sky?"  See you at the field!
