*The Tulip City Air Force is a Holland, Mi. group of nearly 50 members who enjoy building and flying a wide variety of model aircraft ranging from inexpensive foam constructed electrics to 1/3rd scale gas powered acrobatics. It is a rewarding hobby that provides unlimited growth and expertise. Today’s vast selection of ARFs (almost ready to fly) airplanes are designed for those without a lot of building skills and yet allow them the privilege to get right to flying.

**The AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) is a national organization that began over 75 years ago to advance model aviation by providing safety guidelines, annual national flying events, a partnership with the FAA, liability insurance and a wonderful monthly magazine, ‘Model Aviation‘ to its members.
One thought on “Tulip City Air Force Take Off and Grow Event May 21st”
Just a note of thanks for the chance to fly a trainer! I very much enjoyed it and watching what more experienced pilots are capable of! I took my foamie out the other night after a couple more hours on the simulator and had four successful takeoffs, flights, and landings! Dead calm weather helps! Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for the hospitality, and I’ll come by when you’re flying again. If doc continues his mantra of “no more rally cars,” I know where my new hobby will be waiting for me!
