The Tampa Radio Control Aircraft Club recently received an AMA Club Recognition and Reward Grant for $150. The club is located in Seffner, FL.
The club’s airfield is the Hillsborough Heights Solid Waste Facility. The open space is a closed landfill which makes it the perfect place to take flight. The club pays $10 a year to use the space to fly. It is a benefit to the county because they maintain the 13 acres of land which saves the county money.
The AMA Club Recognition and Reward Program was established to encourage clubs to promote model aviation. The AMA offers clubs cash incentives for positive local media coverage for a public event, public service, club announcement, or other coverage. Click here to learn more about this program.
