Our club is located in Coquitlam, British Columbia, and has been in operation since the early seventies… Our field is at the Upper Coquitlam River Park on Pipeline Rd.
From Lougheed Hwy go north on Pinetree Way, past Lafarge Lake and Town Centre Park. Turn right at the light onto David Ave. Then at the next light turn left onto Pipeline Rd. Continue north past the gravel pits. The park will be to your right.
Providing the weather cooperates, we fly 7 days per week. Your best chance to run in to us is on a weekend, or weekday afternoon, but some of the diehards also fly weekday mornings, so there’s a lot of oppurtunity to enjoy the hobby.
The pictures below were taken by a camera mounted inside the fuselage of an R/C plane and looking through a clear bubble canopy. You can see our paved runway. The two circles are for the control line airplane flyers. As you can see, we have lots of trees surrounding our field, but don’t let the pictures fool you. There’s actually a lot of room to fly. Some pilots even fly their planes in the infield.
The Kamikaze pilots (as we are known) hold their club meetings the second Monday in January, March, May, September and November at the Wilson Centre in Port Coquitlam at 7:30 PM. Here we discuss all aspects of flying pertaining to our club, from safety to upcoming events. The atmosphere is laidback and informal…
Following the meetings, we usually adjourn to the local donut shop to talk about our latest acquisition or loss…
