As many of us are now aware, Gov. Wolf has lifted the statewide 'STAY AT HOME' order for SW PA, which includes Butler County. This begins at midnight May 14, 2020. Becaue we are now in 'the yellow' phase of the commonwealth opening back up, all residents are strongly encouraged to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing - no less than 6 feet apart.
By going from 'red' to 'yellow', our flying field will be open and ready for members to begin flying again. During these 'Stay At Home' times, various club members have taken it upon themselves to make sure the field is properly maintained so all of our pilots have a well cared for flying field when the county did go to yellow and/or green.
If you are interested in building or flying fixed wing, radio control (R/C) airplanes or just enjoy great company, then you have come to the right place! The BAMS (Butler Aircraft Modelers Society) is an excellent club to help you get started in this hobby.
If you are already a pilot, you will find The BAMS to be a very diverse group of pilots who are interested in the many different facets of this wonderful hobby. We fly anything from foamies to big balsa planes and everything in between. You will find that with us, there is no more satisfying sense of accomplishment than seeing the creation that you built fly for the first time! All of our members enjoy the hobby and enjoy spending time and sharing their experience and know-how with others that are interested too.
The simple truth of the matter is that you just will not find a friendlier group of fliers anywhere.
If you are new to the sport of radio controlled airplanes, we offer an excellent training program during the warmer months. Because we know how difficult and expensive it can be to try to learn to fly rc airplanes on your own, we do everything we can to teach, support and assist new pilots. We believe that in order to truly enjoy this hobby/sport, you need to learn not only how to fly safely, but to properly build and maintain your aircraft. And you can always count on our members to help out when yo need it.
