Tustin Hanger Project for Indoor Flying

  Public meetings have been held to obtain concerned citizens input on the Re-Use Plan.  Harbor Soaring Society of Costa Mesa (AMA Charter Club 128) has attended these meetings with the express purpose of encouraging the Parks Department to include indoor model flying in the massive blimp hangar.  Our goal is to establish an agreement with the Parks Department and the AMA, or very likely the National Free Flight Society, to allow regular access to the hangar for sport flying, and local, national and international competitions.  We realize it may take an extended period of time to achieve this goal, but we already are hearing favorable comments from the Parks Department. 


Harbor Soaring Society has just added a section of our web site dedicated to explanation and details of our plan being proposed to the Parks Department.  This E-mail is being sent you as a group of enthusiasts whom we hope share an interest in the culmination of this plan, so, you are invited to reply with comments and suggestions.  Our web site is: <>  , select the “Blimp Hangar Project” tab.  Replies may be sent to Fred Hesse, newsletter editor, E-mail:  We look forward to your comments and support, and encourage you to share this notification with all that you feel would be interested.
Best Regards,  Fred Hesse  –  Editor, HSS newsletter
