Welcome To The Whitley County Barnstormers
Welcome to the Whitley County Barnstormers website. We are an AMA(Academy of Model Aeronautics) sanctioned club that promotes the participation and enjoyment of radio control model aircraft. Our Club is made up of variety of pilots ranging from beginners to advanced pilots. Our flying site is now located on County Rd N 125 W in beautiful Whitley County, In.
If you would like to visit our field, contact a club officer to get directions to the field. Our Club has flight instructors to assist you as needed. Our instructors will be more than happy to teach you how to fly at no cost to you. All you have to do is contact a Club officer and he will be glad to lead you to one of our instructors. You must hold a valid AMA card to fly.
Our club also is an Intro-pilot Program Club. This is a program where a person who has no radio control experience or equipment can arrange to meet a Club designated instructor and fly the instructor's airplane free of charge. This way you can try out radio control flying without buying anything to see if you like it . You get three visits to the field within a 60 day period. This is a really cool program to introduce people to the hobby. You do not need to join the club or join the AMA unless you decide you like it and choose to join. All you have to do is go to our contact page and email an officer to arrange a time to meet an instructor. The instuctor will have you fill out a paper for insurance purposes. After that the fun is all up to you!
Please go to our contact page for more information regarding club membership and location. We don't check our guestbook page regularly so emailing one of our cantacts on the contact page is a faster way in getting a response.
