AJ-Aircraft Fly-In

Event Address:
12000 Minx Rd, Temperance, Mi 48182

Event Date:
August 12th & 13th

Landing Fee:
$25.00 Fly for Both Days
$5.00 per car load spectator fee 

Event Details:

  • This is a two day Fly-In event.  All are welcome.  Spectators as well.
  • The event is tailored to get AJ-Aircraft owners and potential owners together were we can fly, meet other flyers, and share setups. Overall just have two great days of fun flying!
  • AJ-Aircraft will have a full line up of airplanes available on display.  We will have limited stock of planes for sale too.  We can bring any requested stock to the field. 
  • Andrew Jesky and team AJ-Aircraft will be at the field as well to answer questions and fly with.
  • We will have raffles, demo flights, and many other fun events. 

Food:
Plate lunches and refreshments will be available for purchase.

Lodging:

  • There will be limited dry camping so you will have to provide your own water.  No camp fires are permitted.  We will leave the clubhouse available for running water and restroom use.
  • There are hotels in a 10 mile radius of our address if you do not have the means to camp. 

Flying Field:
If you’re wondering... the Toledo Weak Signals is the club that hosts the largest RC expo in the country.  And our field is not located in Toledo.  It is located on Minx road in Temperance Michigan. 

We have a 80x400 foot asphalt runway, a clubhouse with nice ADA approved restrooms. We do have power but I would consider bringing a generator in case the amount of flyers overrides the allowable power that we do have. 

All flyers have to abide by AMA safety rules. We will have a modified flight line to handle the influx of flyers.  All flyers will need to fly with spotters.  We will come up with a safe number of flyers on the flight line the day of the event.  We will start with 4 being this is our first annual event that may or may not change. 

AMA membership is required and you must have your card with you. 

We would like pilots to pre-register with the form below.

The gates will open at 7:00am or earlier.  Flying is from 9:00am to 8:30pm on Saturday and 9:00am to 6:30pm on Sunday. 

Unfortunately our township does not allow night flying!

If you have questions concerning the event or need directions please reach out to me via email or phone.

The Ohio Indoor RC Flyers (OIRF) and the Mentor Area Radio Control Society (MARCS), along with the AMA, would like to let you know about a large indoor flying event in our area.

Saturday March 25 - the NE Ohio Indoor Electric Festival (or NEF as we call it).

Would you please notify your members.  With the cancellation of the Horizon Indoor in Columbus and the Hobbicio EFest in Illinois, the NEF is the only major indoor event this season in our area.  We need your support!  Our vendors are counting on it!   The future of indoor flying is at stake! 

The NEF is an all-day event at the University of Akron's Stile Athletic House, a full-size track and field building on campus in the middle of Akron. Time:  9am until 9pm.   There will be a few contests but mostly its open flying.  One end-zone is reserved for 3D flying.  

AMA Pilot registration is $25 for the day.

Only $10 for AMA youth age 10 - 17

Free admission for AMA pilots age 12 and under   

$5 spectators.   Free parking on campus

Here's our website - for the event flyer, directions, information, and on-line registration 


This is a sanctioned AMA event and its in the AMA calendar.

We are also on Facebook, just search for "Ohioelectricfly" and we also have a thread on RCGroups.

The Ohio Quad Racing Group (QRGO) will be sponsoring Tiny Whoop Racing at the NEF.  If you would like to join in the Tiny Whoop Races be sure to join the MultiGP.com site and join the QRGO chapter. It'll save some time on raceday to add you to the race event.
