Aircraft Demonstration for Kids

The Summer Enrichment Academy (SEA) in Bellefontaine, Ohio recently invited MRFA to conduct an aircraft demonstration for their elementary school-age students. Members from our association brought planes to display, talked with the students about how aircraft and model aircraft operate, and even flew some demonstration laps around the school field. We would like to thank Kevin Penwell from SEA for inviting us, and thanks to the students for their interest and the thank you card!

Rotor Challenge

Thanks to everyone that came to the Rotor Challenge despite the grim weather forecast. The rain surprisingly held off and we got some good flights in.

A special thanks is in order for Dick and Bill, who repaired the tractor and got the field looking so nice for the event.
