Black Bear was seen in the woods
North of the flying field in Pembroke. 
If you crash in the woods be
extremely careful and do not enter.
It is better to loose an aircraft verses
suffering injury or worse.


The field safety rules have been changed to
conform with the Akron Airport's removal of the
1,000' flying height limit at our flying field.
The new height limit is 400' conforming with
the FAA, AMA and our Board action
and effective immediately.

The video clips link below has been updated
with two new videos contributed by
