Congratulations!

Richard Kaczmarek, our association president, won first place in the R/C scale airplane category at the 49th Westerville Model Aeronautics Association model show this past weekend. The 1/3 scale Fly Baby is powered by a 50cc Fuji gas engine. If you haven't seen one of the planes he has built, be assured that he is a true craftsman. The plane incorporates a numerous scratch-built features, and is a true representation of the prototype.

Thanks for Coming!

Thanks to everyone that came to our 2019 swap meet, and to all the club members that helped plan the event and set up. We would also like to extend a special thanks to the Champaign Aviation Museum for hosting the event and donating the B-25 ride. We are very fortunate to have such an excellent museum in our community. There was a good turnout, and it was great seeing our friends from regional clubs.
There she is: The Champaign Gal. Some lucky guy won a ride from the Champaign Aviation Museum on this beautiful B-25. 
Museum staff and volunteers were working on the B-17, Champaign Lady, on the other half of the hangar during the swap meet. Where else can you walk among a B-17 restoration and talk to the people building an airplane?
Look-our resident YouTuber! Expect to see footage of the event on his channel. In the background, you can see the museum's C-47, which you can walk inside of.   
Mike Barbee and associates from the National Association of Scale Aeromodelers were present, raffling off this awesome Ready-To-Fly Topflite F6F Hellcat. If you haven't bought tickets- you should! See the link to NASA on the right of this page.
If you are an aviation enthusiast and haven't visited the museum, you ought to put it on your list! You can see aircraft under restoration and talk to the people that work on these historic airplanes.
