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. We also just started a special 'Supporting Clubs' section in the Walk that features clubs who have donated $1000 or more to the AMA Foundation. We are grateful for all the support of the foundation and the programs it supports and are glad to recognize these clubs that go above and beyond! If you are interested in learning more about or would like to purchase a brick in the Walk of Fame, visit our Walk of Fame page here. [gallery columns="4" size="medium" ids="4909,4906,4908,4907"]
Ken Cigler, Earl Caton, and Frank Rebec have been building and flying planes together since the 1950s. They belonged to the same RC clubs and have spent over half a century as friends. When Earl passed away, Ken contacted the AMA Foundation about placing a brick in the Walk of Fame in his memory. After receiving the brick certificate in the mail, Ken reached back out to foundation staff to see if it would be possible to add two more bricks in the walk alongside Earl's; one for him and one for their friend, Frank.
