The National Association of Scale Aeromodelers 5th annual  “2019 NASA Scale Classic” model aviation flying event will take place at the DRCC flying site on October 17th through 20th, 2019.

NASA is a special interest group within the Academy of Model Aviation (AMA) whose mission is to foster building and flying scale models under radio control, free-flight or control-line modes. Some of the best pilots from all over the USA are expected to attend the 4-day event and their skill levels will be judged in several categories. The event and competition is also open to entry by local club members.

This is a first for the DeLand Club, and the first time this event has been held in Florida, so we are proud and thrilled to welcome the NASA members.  It is a testament to our great flying field and the warm hospitality of the DeLand Golden Hawks, who have a history of hosting large model aviation events over the years, such as Jets over DeLand and the Winter Festival of Giants.

 Spectators and families will be encouraged to attend this fun and exciting event at which ample parking and food will be available.
