Squadron R/C Flyers 22nd annual Fly-In August 15th – 18th
Wally’s Squadron is
very honored to have been selected to represent WV and District III for
the first ever National Model Aviation Day August 17 and to be a fund
raiser for the Wounded Warrior project.
We registered 178 pilots from all around District III as well
as many other states outside our District.
Along with these pilots
and their families were around 1000 R/C aircraft from small electric
planes and helis, to 700 size helis and 60% giant scale aircraft and
some of the best piloting that could be seen anywhere. The event has
grown from two days to now four days, with lots of folks showing up a
full week prior to the show. Thursday and Friday are open flying all day
and night with Saturday being the Big day for spectators and activities.
Saturday was also filled with free pilot door prize drawings for the
registered pilots. Thanks to the support of all of our sponsors we had
over 50 items to give away.
Saturday was filled with
plenty of activities, including free foam glider flying games for the
youngsters in which the winners of each of 3 heats won a Blade heli
sponsored by T&K Hobbies. Free Hotdogs were served by our local Boy
Scout Troop 107. They also
prepared and served the pilots and families a free Ham dinner Saturday
evening. This was followed by the Saturday annual night fly in the
fireworks that has to be seen to be appreciated!
Vendors were on site with
almost anything you might want or need to keep your aircraft flying, or
to pick-up that new item you have been wanting.
This event was the first
since the passing of Wally Henderson, which along with Buck Hamrick and
Keith Naye, founded Wally’s Squadron.
In Wally’s honor during the noontime break, Buck and Keith released Wally’s ashes from a Rascal 110. This was a very touching moment for all.

All the members of Wally's Squadron would like to thank all our SPONSORS. With you this event would not be possible.
Please make plans to join
the fun next year. Our 23rd annual Fly-In will be August 14th
thru the 17th 2014. Can’t wait, It just keeps getting
