To celebrate the storied history of model aviation, AMA chartered clubs are encouraged to take part in the first annual National Model Aviation Day on August 17, 2013. Clubs across the country are invited to host an event of their choice to celebrate the day. Clubs are encouraged to reach out and make this a community event. National Model Aviation Day will be a great opportunity to introduce model aviation to your friends and families. And, for this inaugural year, we’re asking that clubs who host an event do so in support of the Wounded Warrior Project.
Wounded Warrior’s mission is to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured members of the US Military and to provide programs and services to help support our country’s injured heroes. Hosting an event on National Model Aviation Day is a win/win for AMA clubs, its members, and all of those courageous service men and women who have given so much to protect the freedoms we all enjoy.
Please stay tuned as details will soon be released on the AMA website, in Model Aviation magazine, and in future issues of AMA Today.
