These pilots fly with their feet planted firmly on the ground, and they’re inviting the community free of charge to see how they do it during the Veterans and Angels Fly-in on Oct. 18-20 at the old airfield off Airport Road.
The event is for radio-controlled aircraft pilots, with pilot fees benefitting Fort Stewart’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation for local service members and their families, said Lewis Waldrop, Blazing Angels RC Squadron club president. Pilots who participate will pay $10 a day, or $20 for all three days, said Don Borte, fly-in coordinator and squadron club member. Donations also will be accepted, Borte said.
The club will follow safety rules and regulations for the fly-in as prescribed by the Academy of Model Aeronautics or AMA, Waldrop said.
