In an attempt to attract jet planes to the fi eld, last summer the Town of Quartzsite extended the run- way by 125 feet. They also resurfaced the full 625 foot runway length. We have a "cross runway" to take advantage of the northwest winds we fre- quently experience in Quartzsite. The fi eld con- sists of six fl ight stations, 18 outside work benches, and a solid covered shelter to work in out of the wind. The area is covered with carpet to keep the dust down. Our monthly business meeting is held the sec- ond Wednesday of every month at Jimmy's han- gar, 1365 Datig Drive at 9 a.m. Membership fees are $10 annually and a membership in the A.M.A. (Academy of Model Aeronautics) is mandatory. If you have any interest in fl ying, wish to learn how to fl y, or just want to be a spectator and talk to the pilots feel free to join us. Please don't be shy.
