Warbirds Over Denver 2017

Warbirds Over Denver – Warbirds Over Denver Great was a great weekend of flying with 70 pilots flying their beautiful warbirds for 3 days of great weather in Colorado. This annual RC flying event celebrates and honors those who fought in the skies from the US and around the world. The event is a “fun fly” of radio-controlled military aircraft reproductions from World War I to the present.  Aircraft include World War I bi-planes, World War II fighters and bombers, and 200 mph turbine-powered jet models from Desert Storm.  Club members and other Warbird enthusiasts will participate and fly at the event.

Check out a great video of the event by club member Bud Glass, click here.

Meet the Jefco Aeromod’lers RC Club

The mission of the Jefco Aeromod’lers is to promote the building and flying of radio-controlled model aircraft in a safe and responsible manner, and to assist in supporting the goals and mission of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). Founded in 1959, we are a chartered club of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). Since its inception, the club has grown from a small group of RC enthusiasts to a diverse group of nearly 300 members. Members range in age from 11 years old to over 80 years – and includes both male and female pilots – demonstrating all levels of flying skills. Members fly models ranging from scale Warbirds to scratch built, gliders to turbine-powered, wingspans from 14” to 120”, and basic planes without landing gear to sophisticated aircraft requiring up to 10 different controls.
