All types of aircraft will be demoed during the day including Trainers, Sport Planes, Bi-Planes, Warbirds, Jet Aircraft and helicopters. These aircraft will be powered by glow fuel two and four stroke engines, gasoline engines, electric motors and even jet engine turbines. This is a great opportunity to ask question of the pilots and learn how to get started in the hobby. We even give the youngsters an opportunity to fly on a buddy box. Make plans to attend.
