CoPilot Flying Program
The Clovis Area Modelers (ClovisRC) Inc. is pleased to announce the creation of the New CoPilot Program.
The programs intent is to assist skilled seasoned pilots where for one reason or another due to health or other life challenges would like to continue to fly but are in need of a dedicated CoPilot. Where the CoPilot – a skilled flyer – acts as an assistant (copilot) to help the chief pilot get back in the flight path or out of challenging situations when needed.

Introduction to NMPRA Electric Formula One (EF1)
NMPRA (National Miniature Pylon Racing Association) Electric Formula One (EF1) is a racing event for radio control airplanes powered by electric motors. The event is intended to be easy to get into, available everywhere, reasonably priced and using off-the-shelf components (ARF and build KITS) to create the maximum amount of fun. While there is a great diversity in equipment available for electric models, the rules are designed to eliminate a technological advantage available to a limited few and allow all participants to compete on an even level.
The NMPRA maintains strict control of the rules and their interpretation; and, will make necessary adjustments to these rules to eliminate any development, technological or otherwise, which upsets the level playing field. Therefore, the rules will provide a guideline for the racing event and its equipment, necessary for the CD to execute the EF1 event. The EFI rules to be utilized can be found by searching with your browser “NMPRA Electric Formula One Rules”. It is a 12-page PDF document dated 4/15/2014.
The (Fresno Radio Modelers) would like to invite all interested pilots to come to Ave 12, FRM field for the 2021 YSPRA racing season, starting the last weekend of March on Saturday 27th. Pilots do not have to be a member of FRM; however, do need to have their AMA license. There will be a nominal pilot fee (to cover prizes and awards) at each contest. FRM would like all pilots that come to our YSPRA EF1 events to have an enjoyable good time and be sure to have fun.
