Took the opportunity to spend a few hours flying at the club yesterday evening. A wonderful evening of flying spent in the company of some good friends until the sun begins to set on the horizon.

What a beautiful way to end the day.

Steve.

Where is your field? What a wonderful backdrop and are those two runways I see?

Levanter,

The field is at the foothills of the Pyrenees in northern Spain. Yes, two linked runways; one of 160m and the other 200m.

Steve
I live in Mallorca and so must try and visit your field one day. What is the name of the club? Could I look it up for events or open days? I am recently back into the hobby and building like a mad thing but with no flying experience. Is there a Spanish Federation like the BMFA? Sorry - too many questions!

Levanter3,

The club is situated in Igries, Huesca, Aragon. The name of the club is " club aeromodelismo osca " We have a web site with all the details of events etc. The club is affiliated to "FADA" Federacion Aragonesa de los Deportes Aereos which is the overseeing body of the "sport' here in Aragon.

The club hosts several organised events during the year and the Brietling event every few years.

Now, the strange thing is, the membership number runs into the forties but you wouldn't know it. In general there are about a dozen of us who fly regularly and have loads of fun in the process. There are models worth thousands in the hangars that I've not seen flown for at least two years.

With regard to visiting one day: no problem, just get in touch.

Steve.

Yes, it's a fantastic place to fly.

We also have a club house with a kitchen/bar, an open fire and TV. Ladies and gents loos and an outside shower. In the pits area we also have a 12v supply for battery charging and a PA system for those special days.

To cap it all membership fees are only 96 euros for the year.

Steve.

Steve, those facilities sound fantastic at any price, let alone only €96. And a dozen regulars out of 40 members sounds about the sort of ratio that a lot of clubs report.

Steve , ladies and gents toilets, that is nothing, we have executive toilets, just down the grass track, avoiding the nettles, ducking to avoid low hanging branches.

The sunset is something else!

Perhaps you are spoiled?

Actually Erfolg, now I come to think of it, my club has an outside shower too. It's a bit unreliable though, generally not working, but then working sometimes when you least expect it. Covers quite a wide area too! nerd

Bringing us back on-topic... Here's the sunset we had a couple of weeks ago up on the Downs. I don't recall if this was before, or after, the rain! I suspect before, otherwise I wouldn't have still been there looking at those clouds. This shot might have something to do with the "shower" I mentioned previously... smile p

Well, we have a portaloo at our field. Now if I could only persuade the rest of the members to close the lid so the stink goes up the vent....

Oh Boy, and I thought our club was brilliant.

Mind you, early this year we had several tons of sludge from the sewage works a hundred yards up wind of us for several months. Forget portaloos!

Urgh...jealousy can be such a cruel mistress wink

 

Half way up a hillside in Scotland suddenly doesn't compare! That's stunning!

 

Just had a look at your website, loos?  In Scotland we call them "bushes"..  Showers????? up here that's called "wait till it rains" (usually 5 - 10 minutes or just after you unload!!)
