Model Aviation Community Celebrations Held to Support Wounded Warrior Project Across the Nation
Date:8/14/2014

Muncie, IN (PRWEB) August 14, 2014

Nearly 200 model aviation clubs across the country are registered to participate in the Academy of Model Aeronautics Foundation’s 2nd annual National Model Aviation Day celebration, August 16.

National Model Aviation Day was established in 2013 to celebrate the history, hobby, and sport of model aviation. Registered clubs have been asked to conduct a public event, with a focus on model aviation education, camaraderie, and community support.

The Wounded Warrior Project has again been selected to receive the proceeds from the fundraisers. The AMA received many positive responses from clubs that felt honored to help this charity. A number of military veterans are AMA members.

Wounded Warrior Project was established to honor and empower our wounded veterans and military heroes. It increases public awareness of and enlists support for injured service members. WWP helps injured service members’ aid and assist each other and provides unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured veterans. This year’s goal is to surpass last year’s total contribution of $76,000.

Several organizations have assisted the AMA Foundation in its efforts to celebrate National Model Aviation Day. We want to recognize National Model Aviation Day major sponsors, Hobby King and Ready Made RC, and this year’s featured sponsor, Fly RC Magazine. The AMA Foundation would also like to thank the FAA for its support of the event. This year, the AMA and the FAA are jointly celebrating the special day.

The Academy of Model Aeronautics has a long and successful history of advocating for model aviation pilots’ right to fly, encouraging STEM-based education related to model aviation principles, and encouraging competition that abides by the AMA’s safety guidelines. National Model Aviation Day will celebrate these things and a hobby that has become a passion for thousands of people across the country.

Club celebrations will include many different activities including open fun-flys, buddy-box flying, community picnics, air shows, auctions, and much more. A complete list of participating clubs and descriptions of the activities each has planned can be found at http://nationalmodelaviationday.org/find-an-event/.
