Weather permitting, flying activities take place nearly every morning. Often, by 10:00 AM, flying is finished for the day, particularly when it becomes too windy. However, members have access to the field at any time.
Visitors are welcome, but must park and observe activities from safe vantage points. Visitors are allowed to fly models under certain circumstances regulated by the club's Safety Committee.
JOINING THE CLUB
The club welcomes new members and does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, creed, political, or ethnic background. A prerequisite to club membership is Full Membership in the Academy of Model Aeronautics. Park Flyer Membership does not qualify. AMA application forms are available at Hank Nilsen Field or may be downloaded from AMA's modelaircraft.org Web Site. Flying is regulated by the club's Safety Committee. Experienced flyers seeking membership must demonstrate their skills to the satisfaction of the Safety Committee before solo flying is allowed. New pilots must undergo supervised training and meet the Safety Committee's requirements before solo flying is permitted. An application for Highland Lakes Flyers can be downloaded from this Web Site.
LEARNING TO FLY
For those who join the club, instruction is provided free of charge. Flight training is not offered to non members. The student pilot must furnish his / her own airplane and accessory equipment which meet Safety Committee criteria before training commences. Trainees will encounter a very supportive atmosphere within the club. Anyone interested in learning to fly should first consult with members of the club's Safety Committee before acquiring a model and other equipment.
