The Hudson Valley Radio Control Club recently received an AMA Club Recognition and Reward grant for $150. The club is located in West Haverstraw, NY. On Aug. 18, the club hosted their 9th Annual Air Show at the Hudson Riverview Park. The club has all day flying demos as well as flight simulators and the chance to fly an R/C plane with an instructor from the club. The Town of Haverstraw provided free refreshments and a free shuttle service for the public. The AMA Foundation would like to thank the Hudson Valley Radio Control Club for hosting this event every year for the public and sharing the hobby with others! 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.
Summertime is busy with visitors at the International Aeromodeling Center. One of the places many stop to see is our Walk of Fame, where hundreds of people are honored by their friends and loved ones. The Walk of Fame is a great way to remember friends, honor loved ones, and be a permanent part of aeromodeling history. The Walk of Fame is growing and becoming more popular each year and is quickly filling up! We just had 64 bricks engraved and are in the process of placing them in the Walk.
