It's National Model Aviation Day!!!

Saturday, August 15, Marks A Chance To Commemorate How So many Aviators Got Their Start

On Saturday, August 15, the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) will commemorate the ninth annual National Model Aviation Day, an event that celebrates the importance of model aviation for inspiring creativity and advanced learning through hands-on activities.

This year, AMA invites the public to explore the hobby at home with quick model aircraft projects for kids - great for STE(A)M learning. Some AMA clubs will be also hosting socially distanced outdoor events in their communities, in compliance with local COVID-19 safety guidelines.
 
"National Model Aviation Day is an opportunity for everyone to experience the joy of flying - and maybe learn a little something along the way," said Chad Budreau, executive director of AMA. "For decades, model aviation has been a beloved pastime, a hands-on approach to learning, and even a pathway to future careers. We are excited to continue this tradition and share the model aviation hobby with more people."
 
AMA has curated 20 quick model aviation projects for kids and adults of all ages. The projects help teach the principles of flight by building various model aircraft, using common household supplies most people already have at home.

More information, as well as printable project guides, are available at http://amaflightschool.org/quickprojects.
 
National Model Aviation Day events are free and open to the public, although the size and number of events are limited this year due to the pandemic. Activities at each event vary, but most include model airplane flying demonstrations, simulated flying stations, opportunities to learn how to fly, STE(A)M activities for kids, raffles, camping and much more. All events will adhere to local COVID-19 safety guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all who wish to attend.

Details for in-person events can be found here: http://amablog.modelaircraft.org/modelaviationday/find-and-event/
 
Many AMA clubs are also raising money to support the AMA Foundation, which is devoted to inspiring the young and young-at-heart to pursue model aviation. The Foundation manages programs and services that educate people about model aviation and how to help foster an interest in STE(A)M fields. These efforts encourage young people to explore careers in STE(A)M that continue to be vital for our future.
