The Casa Grande RC Flyers received the Award Of Excellence. The award was started by the AMA in 1990. Since then, only 58 clubs have received this honor, including the Casa Grande RC Flyers. The AMA staff (Erin Dobbs) recommended to the District Vice President that our club receive this award. The District Vice President agreed, and at the quarterly Executive Council meeting in Muncie, Indiana, the nomination was presented and voted on by ALL the district vice presidents and AMA executive officers. They unanimously approved our inclusion into this select group because of our club's community engagement and our continued dedication to model aviation and the Academy of Model Aeronautics. To put this into perspective, there are over 2,500 AMA clubs in the nation and only 58 awards presented since 1990. Thank you AMA for this top honor.
