MexAir R/C, with the help of the HAWKS Junior Aviators program, is running an indoor flying program this winter. We are starting on October 14th and we will be running until April 14th, 2017. We will fly every Friday night from 6pm-9pm at the Mexico Elementary School located in Mexico, NY. Everyone is welcome to join in!
There is a $5 charge for any adults who wish to fly. Anyone ages 19 or below fly for free!!
Our goal is to perpetuate the remote control hobby to the fullest extent possible by making it easy for kids to get involved. They are, of course, the future of the hobby. We have a demo version of a ParkZone Vapor airplane for the kids to try out for their first session. After their first session, it is recommended that the student purchase their own aircraft for as little as $29.99 + tax.
AMA (Academy for Model Aeronautics) insurance will be required for everyone after their first session. For new adult members this will cost $38.00 for the rest of 2016 through the end of 2017. AMA is FREE for anyone age 19 or below if born before July 1st of their birthyear. Below is a list of things to know and some pictures.
