The annual Northwest Florida Modelers Inc open house will be held on Saturday, Sep 24 10am till 3pm at Rae Fritz Field located at the Escambia Model Park off west Mobile Hwy.
Certified R/C flight instructors will be there with trainer model airplanes to teach kids and adults with an interest to fly a R/C airplane. Instructors will use a buddy box system where they can retake control if the student gets into trouble. There will be a short ground school to teach the basics before you try your hand at actually flying.
There will be free hotdogs and hamburgers, a prize drawing for those signed up to fly, a raffle drawing for models and supplies and exciting flight demostrations by expert helo and airplane pilots.
So, if you or your family has any interest in model airplanes we invite you to bring them out to our open house, try a hand at flying, scarf down some free chow, get a chance to win a prize and see some amazing model flying by some real pros.
