Members of Dare County Radio Control Flyers, the area’s local radio control model aviation club, will be hosting a flying event at their field in Manns Harbor on Saturday, September 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Local residents of all ages are invited to attend and any person attending will be afforded the opportunity to fly one of the club’s radio control aircraft.

There is no fee for attending or flying at this event, however the club is asking all attendees to bring at least one canned good or non-perishable food item per person. Items will be donated to the local food bank by the club following the event.

Those attending who wish to try flying a radio control model airplane will be able to do so utilizing an aircraft provided by the club under the supervision of one of the club’s flight instructors. Attendees will also be provided with lunch consisting of grilled hot dogs, chips and a beverage at no cost.

“This event was conceived as a way of giving back to our community” stated the club’s president, Jim Davis, “and it is also a way for those who are curious or interested to try flying a model without any cost.”

For those interested, further details on the event and a map providing the event’s location are available online at dcrcf.club/calendar.

Dare County Radio Control Flyers was chartered in 1989 by the Academy of Model Aeronautics and serves to promote radio control model aviation as a sport and recreational activity at the home of the Wright Brothers’ first flight, the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The club is a self-supporting, not-for-profit organization that is always looking for new members to share their passion for radio control model aviation. Membership is open to anyone with an interest, including those with little or no experience in the hobby. For further information, visit dcrcf.club or contact 252-656-2FLY(2359).
