USA Bid for the 2019 World Champs

The AMA has put in a bid for the 2019 World Free Flight Champs to be held at Lost Hills, California, USA in October 2019.  The sponsoring Club is SCAT (Southern California Aero Team) along with the NFFS (National Free Flight Society) , the Lost Hills Association and of course the AMA as the National Aero Club for the USA.  These are the same organizations who ran the 2 previous Lost Hills World Champs in 1993 and 2001.  More details will be published as they become available.

The Lost Hills site is well known to Free Flighters world wide.  In October the weather is very much different than in February as it is warm and dry with challenging thermal conditions.  Those wanting to check out the condition ahead of time should consider the 2 World Cup Events held every year in October.

NFFS Plans Service

From: David Gerspacher via FB

I have been handling the NFFS plans service for the last few years. The new commerce system on the website is working well and the printer has been doing a great job on order turn-around time.

We have plans for the Witchhawk and the Zingo that are designated for the One Design event at the Nats this year.

You do not have to be a member to order plans or other publications the NFFS provides although being a member helps the NFFS support many good causes.

Please contact me with any questions you have about the plans and I would be glad to help. (
