Tonight is 'Flight Night' in Portola Valley

Portola Valley will hold its fourth annual "Flight Night," with demonstrations and displays of radio-controlled model aircraft, at 6 p.m. Friday, May 16, at the Portola Valley Town Center, 765 Portola Road in Portola Valley.

The public is invited to this free event, where fixed-wing, helicopters and multi-copters will be demonstrated and displayed. Some aircraft will have lights for after-dark flying, according to a statement from the event's sponsor, the Portola Valley Nature & Science Committee.

Participants can get instruction and practice on computer flight simulators. Materials will be on hand to build gliders, and there will be in-flight videos and opportunities to talk with skilled pilots and learn about careers in science and technology.
