Community Model Aviation Day – Looking for persons interested in Remote Control Flying
The Capital Area Radio Drone Squadron (CARDS) is thrilled to host Community Model Aviation Day on Aug 17 from 10 AM to 3 PM.
Visitors can experience flying a real Remote Control (RC) airplane after some introduction on a Computer simulator. We pair you with a qualified flight instructor using a RC Buddy Box. This is a safe and fun way to be introduced to this hobby. This event is totally free and we even provide free hotdogs, chips and a beverage. You can also learn about multicopters and helicopters and may be able to see a demonstration. One of our members sited this quote “The Wright Brothers created the single greatest cultural force since the invention of writing. The airplane became the first World Wide Web, bringing people, languages, ideas, and values together.” — Bill Gates. It does seem true. Not everyone can learn to fly full sized planes but everyone can manage to fly RC craft.
We encourage all media to help us promote this event. A short video will help you gain some perspective of what to expect at this event. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vs145XmnQ9E
