Warbirds over Denver
June 10th -12th (Fri-Sun)
Warbirds Over Denver – 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. For more information, visit www.warbirdsoverdenver.com.
NEW at the flying field – the Jefco Weather Station
Thanks to the efforts of several club members, the Jefco weather station was recently installed. The weather station records and displays a myriad of information such as temperature, wind, wind gusts and more! The best feature is the camera, which displays a visual glimpse of the field refreshing every five minutes. Check it out at www.jeffcoaeromodlers.com/weather.
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.
