Your membership benefits include...
1. On-site Electric Power
During 2011, we added on-site electric power to both the site shelter (120VAC outlets) and to the the flightline pinbox. The pinbox was converted to a charging station with 120VAC outlets and 12VDC power bar with 4mm banana plug jacks. This new feature has really made things nicer at the field but as this cost for managing this service is a club expens. In 2012, we added a 24VDC charging option to this box, so the benefits for joining continue to grow!
2. Club Events and Meetings
We are making a concerted effort improve the content of our meetings and are planning several guest speakers who from time to time will be making presentations relevant to the hobby. We are also working to improve our schedule of club events and fly-ins.
3. Continuation of Facility Services
Although the City of Dayton does mow the majority of the field, they do not mow the area within about 50 feet of the runway and around the shelter and parking areas. Maintenance and mowing of the field, upkeep of the paved runway, shelter and the maintenance of electric service are the sole responsibility of the club. We are a non-profit organization so joining the club not only helps to maintain the facility but to also continually improve it.
