The past Memorial Day weekend, our field celebrated 20 years of great flying at our current location!  Despite windy weather a number of our members, including several founding members, came out to enjoy each other’s company and reminisce about the early days of our field and the great contributions by those founding members to produce the outstanding field we enjoy today. The celebration was capped off with free food and drinks.

Palm Springs Air Museum Family Day

Once again, the Palm Springs Air Museum asked the CVRC Club to participate in their Family Day over the July 4th holiday weekend.  Several members of the club were on hand at the Palm Springs Air Museum for Family Day, July 2, 2022, to introduce the public to RC flight and our club, along with building balsa gliders, and lessons on the RealFlight flight simulator.  The kids, and the club members, had a great time building balsa gliders and testing their skills in the distance competitions that were held several times during the day-long event.

900' Dawn to Dusk; 2000' with Notification

After years of hard work and negotiations with the FAA culminating in a 4-day-long “Safety Risk Mitigation (SRM)” meeting, we finally have an official Letter of Agreement with the FAA and the Southern California Terminal Radar Approach Control (SoCal TRACON) granting our airfield a 900’ altitude limit dawn to dusk every day, and a 2000’ altitude limit with 24 hr notice to the FAA and SoCal TRACON. Our club is one of only a handful of RC airfields in the US to receive such an exception.
