“I grew up building and flying RC planes with my father, and have continued the hobby for 40+ years. What this has taught me is that the RC aviation hobby is a truly unique family experience that teaches young people that if they can master the skills to build and fly model airplanes then they can acheive anything. My father is retired US Navy pilot and therefore always emphasized safety when flying model airplanes. This sort of mentorship is something that cannot be replaced by regulations or required technological restrictions. However this sort of mentorship is alive and well at local organized flying fields affiliated with Community Based Organizations such as the Academy of Model Aeronautics where everybody young and old collaborates on safely enjoying the hobby they are passionate about.”
