Printed Flying Lines newsletter back Issues
New issue added Nov. 30, 2022

The Flying Lines newsletter was published from May 1979 until all of its features were adapted into the Flying Lines website in 2006.

As with the current website, Flying Lines newsletter was a complete, independent source for all control-line flying news in the Pacific Northwest. Some Northwest fliers have complete collections. Requests occasionally still come in for back issues.

Since conversion to a website in 2006, it has been a goal of the FL staff to get all of the 214 issues of the printed FL online for download as PDF documents. Randy James, a CL flier in Silvana, Wash., has been providing scanning services, and issues are being added regularly.

Those listed available can be downloaded now. Please check back for additional issues.

Most editions are now searchable! Just open the document in Adobe Reader, hit Control-F (or Apple-F) and type in the word you're looking for, and hit "enter."
