Western NY Sailplane and Electric Flyers
We are currently a club without a flying site. The main focus of our club is radio control soaring - RC sailplanes. We are focusing on borrowing fields and travelling to soaring events. This is a new direction for us but we have little choice.

R/C Sailplanes is how WNYSEF got its start. We fly all kinds - Hand-Launch/DLG, 2-Meter, and Open Class. The club used to fly primarily at the Erie Community College South Campus and we fly slope gliders off a hill in East Otto.
We are currently seeking days at other clubs fields where we can fly on their hospitality a time or two each year.
The Flying Knights of Hamburg, NY have a couple nice fields where we have been flying primarily electic launched sailplanes, as members of that club.
The ECC South gym has been designated as a field house for the new stadium construction and is unavailable while construction is ongoing.
We are pursuing other options and will post and advertise through other clubs when we are successful.
