Spring Fly In a Great Success

Our Spring fly in was a great success!!!

We had 31 registered pilots, great hot dogs and hamburgers, great flying, and great camaraderie.  We unveiled our new, enclosed, food preparation area to 100% positive reviews.  All involved, both from the cooking side and from the eating side enjoyed the use of the newly remodeled facility and look forward to using this space for many events in the future.

The following awards were presented at the fly-in:

  • Bobby Helms – Best Bi Plane
  • Trent Wilhelm -People’s Choice
  • Best Scale – Ray Andersen

Fall Fly In a Great Success

Our fly in was a huge success!!!

We had 45 registered pilots, great BBQ, great flying, and great camaraderie. We spent time honoring Gene Leonard by dedicating the Gazebo as a memorial to Gene for his service to the country and the many contributions he made to the club.

We also were able to honor the Purple Heart Foundation for their work and service. A large portion of the event’s proceeds will be donated to the Foundation to be used to support their mission and to help veterans who served our country.

Good Bye to a Fellow Aeromodeler Gene Leonard

Good Bye to Fellow Aeromodeler Gene Leonard

Today is a sad day for the Charlotte Aeromodelers as we lost one of our long time members.  Gene Leonard  died Saturday after a fight with cancer.  It was an honor to know and fly with Gene. Gene was one of the lucky ones that survivesd the WW2 Normandy invasion. Gene’s passion was flying model aircraft. You would hardly ever see a day that Gene was not at the field making memories with fellow Members.

We will miss him!
