Meeting Location Change
All members please note that the meeting location has been moved for the November meeting to the Elks Lodge. Time and date are still the same.
It is that time of year again. Indoor flying is starting back up. Check our calendar for times and locations. With the advances in gyro and stabilization technology the micro indoor planes are more stable and fly "larger" than ever before. These new planes can be picked up right here in town at Trains and Things. Come join us and keep your skills sharp while keeping your fingers warm.
Electric Fun Fly and Swap Shop
We would like to thank everyone that came out for our Fly In Saturday August 4. Electric planes, electric helicopters, and Quads flew at our Rennie Field.
We also had a tailgate swap from 9 AM till noon.
New Geotextile Runway
The new fabric runway at Rennie Field is installed. You can even fly the ultra micro planes off of it! At about 300ft x 30ft with two taxiways this is one of the premier fields in northern Michigan. We also built a new structure at the Interlochen Field now if only we could keep those pesky mosquitos away!
The TRAMPS air show was June 23rd this year with an additional day of open flying on Sunday the 24th. Click here for more information.
You can see some images from previous events on the photos page.
Everyone had a great time with lots of flying. The new Geotextile runway allowed for a wide variety of planes with smaller retractable gear to fly. Thank you to all of our sponsors!

2014 Wounded Warrior Project Airshow
This year TRAMPS and BARCS teamed up for a fall airshow to raise money for the wounded warrior project. It was an amazing success. The airshow went very well there was even a very nice pyrotechnics display in the mid day show! Marshall's F-4 also stole the show with the blazing high speed passes.
Thank you to all the TRAMPS members that came out and flew!
TRAMPS 2014 Airshow
Day one of the Air Show is complete. What a beautiful day at the Empire Airport. Blue skies and light winds. We would like to thank Tim Jesky, AMA District VII Vice President, for coming out for the show. We're hoping the weather holds out for tomorrow as well.
