To invent an airplane is nothing. To build one is something. To fly is everything - Otto Lilienthal Speed is life. Altitude is life insurance The man who flies an airplane , must believe in the unseen - Richard Bach Any damned fool can criticize , but it takes a genius to design it in the first place - Edgar Schmued The exhilaration of flying is to keen , the pleasure to great , for it to be neglected as a sport - Orville Wright

here are some of my favorites:
spectator:"How much did it cost?"
Me:"No, actually I got it on Ebay for half off."
"Does it fly?" (Really! I've been asked that!)
Them: "Hey, you gonna fly that?"
Me: "No, I'm going to plant it in the ground, water it and see if it grows into a full scale"
" I used to watch these things fly back when they flew at blah blah blah..."
(continues for 22 minutes description of his observations on RC, fishing, law enforcement, local politics and his sister-in-law's kidney operation, and then...) "...and I was always gonna build one and fly it. Maybe I'll do that next week, I havealittletimeandmaybeyoucouldhelpmewithit.."
At which point I say, 'scuse me. I have to go fly now, and you can't be on that side of the fence.
"I would be too afraid of crashing to ever try that" - Who hasn't?
"Can you fly that on you're street?" (60 size plane) - Not likely, then it WOULD be too expensive!
"Thats a neat toy, where can I get one?" -
"My uncle/mother/father/brother/sister/friend/etc has one of those.... " - Thats nice,
"Try taking a mouse/gerbil/bug/goldfish/etc for a ride...." - uh.... no.
"Can I fly your plane? Come on, let me fly it!" - Come out every weekend for several months and learn on a buddy box, then maybe.
"I don't want to spend a fortune buying a plane. Can I learn on YOURS?"
and my favorite:
'Can I have a go?'
Then I say
NO you can not have you go, you could not handle the super ion excelerattor coupled with the high powered ultra torque control that lets me release power to the armature of the motor inside the can.

Freedom to create. Freedom to fly. Freedom to utilize our own freq. Freedom to prototype. Freedom to build. Freedom to test our creations. Freedom of airspace. Freedom to speak openly of our hobby. Freedom to modify. Freedom of time allocation. Freedom of choice. Freedom to purchase. Freedom of flying field location. Freedom to operate our own club. These are the freedoms that we have in this country that are not found in many other countries. We are very lucky people to be here , at this place, at this time, involved in this hobby. We are few. We are aviators. Jon

People interested in aviation / model aviation. Must be willing to depart with a minimum of 1/4 - 1 % from your annual income. Must be willing to allocate 1-2 hours a month attending club meetings ( 1-2 % time ). Must be willing to help teach others that are searching for someone to assist with a quest for fun and education. Must possess capacity to understand that you will change lives for the better. Must have the will to donate time and money to this thing called aviation ! Maintaining a club takes alot of work which requires alot of help from club members and a fair amount of money ! We are enroute to providing a successful club. I founded this club in 2002 with the intentions of providing a flying field very close to home and had expected everyone to bring camaraderie, dedication, and allegiance to the table for Walton county aeromodelers. My hopes are that everyone meets this criteria ! Your pres. Jon
