A wide range of aircraft will be on display at AirportFest, part of AOPA Aviation Summit: The smallest weigh less than a pound.
AOPA and the Academy of Model Aeronautics are sponsoring an interactive display of indoor, electric remote-control flying at AirportFest, at Peter O. Knight Airport in Tampa, Fla., Nov. 5 through 7. Enjoy demonstrations from record-holding, world-class remote control aircraft exhibition pilots, and try your hand at flying one with an instructor.
The hangar will be abuzz with activity throughout AirportFest, with demonstrations and opportunities to fly from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. Youth and adults alike can fly with an instructor and enjoy watching stunts in model airplanes and helicopters performed by expert RC pilots.
At Summit, your kids will love building and flying their own model airplanes. Be a part of the future—sign up for AOPA Aviation Summit today!
