The Pikeland Sky Chiefs will sponsor a fly-in 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14, at Lake Pittsfield.

Gas, nitro and electric radio-controlled airplanes, helicopters, warbirds, classics and aerobatics will be featured.

“We’re trying to get people out here to fly and get the public to come and see what we do,” club president Gene Heins said.

Club members especially hope to interest young people in the hobby.

“The young kids, especially when they’ve played video games, catch on quick,” Heins said.

Academy of Model Aeronautics membership cards are required for pilots. No landing fees will be charged, but donations will be accepted.

The public is welcome to watch the planes.

More information and directions to the field are available by calling Heins at 242-0742 or John Freeman at 370-7743.
