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.
