This winter the ARCC was approached by a local scout troop about checking out the field and model aviation. Quickly it was turned into, why watch when you can learn to fly! The date was set and the scouts from the 1st Stittsville Scout Troop came out to try their hand, or thumbs :-), at flying RC airplanes.
Perfect weather greeted them for a full evening of learning about airplane safety, aeronautics and all aspects of flight. Massive thank you to all the club members who dedicated their time, air frames to this effort in exposing the future of our hobby to model aviation.
Look forward to hopefully making this an annual event for the Stittsville Scout Troop and possibly extending this opportunity to other scout groups in the region.
Interested in exposing your youth group to model aviation in the Ottawa Region? Drop us a line anytime firstname.lastname@example.org. See you at the field!
