2020 Club Events
For the 2019-20 Winter season, Indoor Flying was again FREE for any AMA member. We fly in the St. Peter's Lutheran Church Gym from 3:00 to 5:00 PM, on Sundays:
November 3rd December 1st
January 5th & 19th February 2nd & 16th
New Year's Day Freeze Fly
It's a tradition of almost every club. We come out on New Year's Day to fly, no matter the weather. In central Indiana, sometimes there is no snow, sometimes more than a foot. However, it is hardly ever warm.
Hot coffee and doughnuts are staples.
Earth Day was cancelled
Perhaps it will again be at the Recycling Center on South Mapleton in 2021. We display our airplanes, give out magazines and egg carton penny gliders
Club 40 Racing, May 23rd was cancelled
Club 40 is a very simple, introductory racing event, using aerobatic trainers and sport engines. There are 2 classes, 60 and 95 mph. AMA members are invited.
Aviation Day at the Columbus Municipal Airport was cancelled. We have displayed our airplanes and copters since this event was started.
Open House, June 13th was cancelled.
Come out and fly our airplanes, using the Buddy-Box system. All equipment is provided.
Firemen's Cheer Fund Charity Fly-In, August 10 was cancelled.
Our first Cheer Fund Charity Fly-In was held in 2007. This event benefits the Firemen's Cheer Fund, which has existed since the 1930's. It provides toys, clothing and food to less fortunate children and families during the Christmas season.
Joe Grube Memorial Warbird Fly-In, September 21 was cancelled. This event is dedicated to the memory of the first and only of our Charter Members to "Go Flying".
While this is not an event in 2020, pilot training is available at almost any time when the weather cooperates and one of our instructors is available.
