Aviation for Kids, 8 yrs. to 80

On Thursday, December 7th

Starting at 6:30pm (doors open at 6:00)

This seminar offers the young and the more mature of us a brief view into the great hobby of flying Remote/Radio Controlled (R/C) Aircraft. To set the scene, the speaker goes over a short history of aviation and the basics of how aircraft actually work. There are static displays of different model aircraft types and a demo on how the R/C pilot controls his/her plane. Particular attention is given to the most up to date technology that makes todays R/C aircraft almost impossible to crash and lets the new R/C pilot enjoy meaningful flights right from the get-go.

Colin will discuss how you can get started in the hobby; how to join a club, the costs involved, the training program and where to buy your first plane. And finally, attendees will be able to experience R/C flying on a Flight Simulator and all attendees will be invited to visit the Discover Flying RC Club field (by appointment and subject to weather) for a free introductory flight of an RC aircraft with a club certified flight instructor.

Colin Towers, has been an R/C plane builder and pilot for over 30 years and is currently a tour guide for the Massachusetts Air and Space Museum.  He is a long time member of the “Discover Flying RC Club” where he is one of the club’s certified flight instructors, an AMA Contest Director and an AMA certified Introductory Pilot Instructor. Prior to his retirement, Colin had a life-long career teaching adults in the high tech industry, culminating in working with network security and mobile network technologies.
