August 15, 2015, National Model Aviation Day was created by the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), to encourage modelers and clubs across the country to celebrate the hobby and share their interests with the public. And this year all AMA Chartered clubs have also been asked to help conduct a fundraiser to provide assistance to a worthy cause. Through the National Model Aviation Day celebrations around the country, approximately 200 AMA chartered clubs have helped raise $100,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project.
One local RC Club, the Central CT RC Club in Farmington, CT, combined the National Model Aviation Day celebration with the club’s annual picnic, which was enjoyed by many of the club members, their friends and family. MAN was on the flightline enjoying the perfect flying weather and several local MAN contributors were also on hand for the day. For a small donation, Tee Shirts were offered to help raise donations for the Wounded Warrior Project. Here are some pictures from the CCRCC Club flying field.
