We invited the girl scouts from Troop 2603 to come out to our model airplane flying field to demonstrate what these flying model planes are all about. We gave demonstrations of gas and electric flight, plus a drone too! We set up a buddy box system and let everyone have a turn at flying a model airplane. The weather did not cooperate and it was windy making flying a little difficult but the girls did very well and all had fun! Lunch consisted of grilled hotdogs, chips, brownies, water and sodas. We had a great turn out, despite the windy weather. There were 13 girls from the scouts and three adults--Amy, Ashley and Danielle! This was a great day for the flyers to end the 2017 flying season.
National Aviation Day 2016 with "Dare County RC Flyers." A static display of some of our club's model airplanes for people to see up close and in there different stages of assembly! We displayed Information for and about our club and the Academy of Model Aeronautics. Our President, Jim Davis, flew two flights with his "Mini Pulse" for a model airplane flight demonstration. Our club passed out balsa glider airplanes to the young kids and we cooked hot dogs and hamburgers. A great day of fun for all! Special thanks to our president, Jim, as well as David, Lynn, Steve and my wife Kathryn!
