Windy City Jets
September 8th & 9th
This is a Radio Controlled Aircraft event for turbine powered Aircraft. The planes you will see at our event are scale models of full-size aircraft. They are replicas of military and classic aircraft from the Korean War, Vietnam War, Operation Desert Storm, up to current generation of modern jet aircraft. The show will feature jet aircraft powered by small scale turbine engines flying aerobatic maneuvers.
Festival of Flight
This event demonstrates to the public the many types of model aircraft our members enjoy. Aircraft models include all sizes of aircraft, both powered and gliders. The models are made of foam, balsa wood, and composite (among other things). We fly civilian and military planes as well as non-scale sport planes. Models are powered by electric motor, small gas and glow engines, and actual jet turbines.
