David J. Eyde Memorial Remote Control Aircraft Club
This club at West Michigan Aviation Academy was established with a very generous donation from the Eyde Family whose father was an avid aviation enthusiast. Students participating in this club enjoy firsthand experience building and piloting remote control (R/C) aircraft, which acts as a natural building block for both aerospace engineering and aviation flight science. Club members receive a free youth American Modelers Association (AMA) membership and develop the necessary skills to confidently participate in the sport of R/C. Our club also enjoys the mentorship and expertise of members of the Kent Radio Aero Modelers (KRAM) Club that volunteer weekly to help our club members become seasoned R/C enthusiasts. This year- round club allows students to participate when their schedule allows ensuring their primary focus remains on academic achievement!
