Join in the annual Australian Model Flying Day and support the Royal Flying Doctor Service at the same time.
Following the fantastic success of last year’s Australian Model Flying Day, this popular event is happening again on 22-23 October 2016.
The fundraising from this event will help support the Royal Flying Doctor Service which support Australians with their extensive primary health care and 24-hour emergency service.
In 2015, clubs held static displays of model aircraft at barbeques, shopping centres and fun flyins, just to name a few.
More than 40 clubs joined in on the action across Australia. They not only had a great day in the sky but some clubs also awarded members with badges for taking part in the flying activities.
This year’s event will be bigger and better, and is a great way to promote our great sport of aeromodelling. This is what you need to do:
Include in the email:
Your club name
How many members you think will attend
Receive 2016 MAAA Australian Model Flying Day badges
Plan one day during the weekend of 22-23 October and organise a club flying event or even just a fundraising BBQ
Give a commemorative badge to each member who donates $5 towards the day for the Royal Flying Doctor Service
The event does not need to be a flying display (unless your club wishes to do so) therefore no approvals are required. It would be great however, to see members of the public encouraged to come along and take part in our sport!
