Mark Your Calendar For August 12th #ModelAviationDay
Did you know that National Model Aviation Day is right around the corner? Join the Academy of Model Aeronautics Foundation in celebrating model aviation for the fifth annual National Model Aviation Day, August 12, 2017.
National Model Aviation Day was created to encourage clubs to celebrate the hobby and share it with the public. Our chartered clubs have also been asked to conduct a fundraiser to provide assistance to a worthy cause. For this year all clubs have been asked to support the AMA Foundation.
The AMA is devoted to inspiring the young and young-at-heart to pursue a hobby that will inspire creativity and advanced learning through the use of hands-on applications. The purposes of the Foundation will be to fundraise and make grants to AMA to support its charitable and educational programs and services.
Why celebrate #ModelAviationDay?
- This is our national holiday! One day a year we want all AMA members to fly and celebrate model flying with us.
- AMA helps promote your event and club when your group registers! We want your gathering to be successful. Our sponsors help us advertise the events locally and nationally.
- Our team has provided several great resources on the National Model Aviation Day website club resources page to help your club promote its event. If your organization has never promoted a special activity, we make it easy.
- This is your chance to support a great cause! This year’s charity is the AMA Foundation. As a supporter of AMA’s benevolent programs, your organization will help us inspire youth to get active in model flying, provide scholarships to students, award grants to clubs seeking assistance, and help support the national flying site at the International Aermodeling Center in Muncie, Indiana.
- Each registered club receives stickers, is listed on the national event map.
- National Model Aviation Day is a great opportunity for clubs to promote their groups with local and state governments by requesting a city, county, or state proclamation.
- We are all in this together! Model flying is our sport, hobby, and something we want to continue for years. This day receives a lot of positive publicity and shows the media and the public how great model flying is.
