State Of Indiana Proclaims August 17 As Model Aviation Day

Celebration Planned For Academy Of Model Aeronautics National Headquarters In Muncie, IN

The Academy of Model Aeronautics is pleased to announce that the state of Indiana, led by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, has declared August 17, 2013, as Model Aviation Day.

National Model Aviation Day has been established by the Academy of Model Aeronautics—the country’s foremost organization for model aviation—to celebrate the history of model aviation and to promote the hobby on a national scale. The Academy will celebrate Indiana Model Aviation Day at its national headquarters in Muncie IN, along with AMA chartered clubs across the country.

Each of the participating clubs will promote model aviation and the many benefits of participating in the hobby. This nationwide event will also serve as a fundraiser to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. This organization aims to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.
 
A total of 132 AMA chartered clubs have registered to participate and host local events, and dozens more are expected to sign up before the August 1 deadline. Several of the participating clubs come from Indiana.

The celebration at the national headquarters in Muncie IN will feature two air shows, free admission to the National Model Aviation Museum, and hands-on activities. Spectators will have access to two on-site events hosted by the Hoosier Dawn Patrol and the Mid Indiana Society of Thermalers club, a local RC sailplane club.
