Santa Fe Dam Radio Control Modelers Club Spring Model Aircraft Open House
Sat, April 22, 2017, 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM PDT
FREE - no ticket required
Saturday April 22, the Santa Fe Dam Radio Control Modelers club will host a model aircraft open house at its flying site in Duarte. Guests will see displays and demonstration of all types of model aircraft from Piper Cubs to jets, helicopters and "drones". Guests can get a hands on flight experience flying real RC aircraft.
A free lunch and soft drinks will be served. Voluntary donations will be accepted to benefit local causes including City of Hope National Medical Center.
In addition to seeing the aircraft and talking to members, visitors can take the control of a real radio control aircraft in flight to get a feel for this exciting activity. A dual control set up under the watchful eye of an experienced pilot assures a successful experience.
The event will take place at the club flying field east of City of Hope in Duarte. Entrance to the field is at the east end of Duarte Road at the corner of Highland Avenue, just east of City of Hope. Field will be open from 8AM to 2 PM, with flying demonstrations form 9AM to 1 PM.
“Model aviation is a fun activity for all ages.” says club president Rich Rannis. “It is recreational and educational, and easier than ever to get started in. This event will also benefit our local charities. We hope to see lots of families come out.”
