Spring Fly-In Benefits Liberty House

Airmasters Model Airplane Club invites you to attend our annual Spring Fly-in. This remote control flying event will be April 19, 2008 from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm and will be held at our flying field. Our field is located north of Albany and east of Leesburg, GA on Hwy 32E. It's just east of the Lee County Public Works Dept., at the intersection of Mossy Dell Rd. & Hwy 32.

The AMAC membership has decided that this event will support Liberty House. Liberty House is a local organization serving victims of domestic violence and their children. They provide secure emergency shelter, support and counseling, and job training to the victims. Unfortunately, the number of domestic violence calls in our area is high and the end result can be a murder call. AMAC would like to do all that we can to raise awareness, educate the citizens and save as many of these victims as possible.

Registered pilots and spectators will be able to purchase tickets for several drawings that will be held during the day. The registered pilot tickets will also be used for the “Big Ticket” item, a 2.4 GHz system. That drawing will be at 3:00pm.

As always, we'll have coffee and doughnuts in the morning, hamburgers and hot dogs plus the trimmings beginning mid morning and soft drinks and water all day.

The first 30 pilots to register will receive a gift bag with an assortment of items. The pilot registration fee will be $10. A current AMA license is required to fly.

Although some of the best pilots in the area will be flying all day, there will be a mid day demonstration of various types of aircraft beginning about 12:30. The B-29 and Bell X-1 from Andersonville are included in the show.

This event is FREE TO THE PUBLIC, so come out and watch these skilled RC pilots. For additional information, please visit our web site at or call (229) 436-2349.
