“I got into model aviation when I was 8 years old. I had no idea that tiny planes with tiny motors actually existed and when I found out, you can imagine my excitement! It was a dream come true! Ever since, I have been building (mostly scratch building) model planes and flying all over. Lake flying, park flying, fields etc. I fly whenever I get the chance. I now have 2 boys, 10 and 12 years old, that have been building and flying for about 5 years now. I started them with Guillow’s, and then foam board planes. They now fly all sorts of models and drones. It has been one of my favorite things to do and is an amazing chance for me to teach my boys and see their knowledge and skills grow. It is one of the best ways that our family (my nephews fly also) can come together and spend quality time together. My family is far from wealthy and any fees and equipment would simply not be possible. I feel that it is very unfair to penalize someone, especially children, for being responsible law abiding citizens.”
