We have been involved in introducing modeling to children of all ages, sending children to camp, doing flying demos at local schools, churches, and parks. We have also set up simulators and static displays at various locations as an educational experience to our community. We are always open to new ideas to promote our hobby to others in a safe way.
LARKS Mission Statement
To promote model aircraft building and flying as a family oriented hobby, to freely and openly share what we have collectively learned and experienced, and to provide an enjoyable, friendly and safe environment for our fellow hobbyists and guests.
Henry Ford and 19 others (including his son Edsel) invested in the Stout Metal Airplane Company, turning their efforts to the aviation industry. Using some of the innovations of Ford's assembly line systems, they set out to build the "safest airliner around" .
LARKS West's lease is up in October 2017. The field has been stripped of most of the fixtures and moved to the new field, thus it is effectively closed. All club members are invited to fly at the the new field in Pelion
