-A A +A

The Flying For Good featured February submission is the Casa Grade RC Flyers. The club is located in Casa Grande, AZ. The Casa Grande RC Flyers held their sixth annual Air Show on Saturday, March 9. The event was free to the public and the event benefitted The Valley Humane Society. The event raised thousands of dollars for the humane society. The Casa Grande RC Flyers is an AMA Gold Level Leader club. There were about 250 people who attended the event. Among the funds raised for the event was a $2,000 donation from 10-time Oscar-nominated songwriter, Diane Warren, who is a cousin of President Alan Friedman. A highlight from the show was when a pilot who represents Hitec/Multiplex, Rick Chitty, few his flying lawnmower. In addition, Tony Quest who represents Horizon Hobby flew an F-16 jet and held a transmitter programming seminar for members and visitors.  Congratulations to the Casa Grande RC Flyers for having a successful event and raising money for their local humane society. The AMA Foundation wants to know how your club has given back to charity. To learn more about the Flying For Good Program, click here.
