Happy National Model Aviation Day!
Tomorrow is the official celebration of National Model Aviation Day. We invite all members to celebrate by attending an event near you, flying with friends at your local field, or by reaching out someone to invite them to learn more about the hobby.
Thousands of model aviation hobbyists will celebrate the sixth annual National Model Aviation Day with over 60 free events across the country, which are open to the public. This national event will bring together aviation enthusiasts and members of local Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) clubs to enjoy flying model aircraft and learn about safety.
Activities at each local event vary, including plane demonstrations, simulated flying stations, fly-ins and much more. To find an event near you, visit: http://nationalmodelaviationday.org/find-an-event/.
Many participating AMA clubs are also raising money to support a number of local charities and the AMA Foundation. We thank those clubs that are going above and beyond!
No matter how you choose to celebrate, let us know on social media using #ModelAviationDay. And send those images (high resolution preferred) to your AMA Vice President for a chance to be featured in Model Aviation magazine!
