Tuesday, August 29, 2017

The Chattanooga Radio Control Club will hold it’s sixth annual Siskin Air Show on Saturday, Sept. 16 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Summit Field, 4223 Old Woodland Dr. in Ooltewah. 

"The annual event welcomes families for a day of fun and excitement as club members put on an incredible air show including radio controlled planes, high performance jets, helicopters, quadcopters, and more. Guests will be amazed as giant-scale aerobatics perform gravity defying stunts, warbirds take to the skies, and turbine powered jets roar past at speeds up to 170 mph. Kids and adults can also then take their turn flying a radio controlled plane alongside a club member in the buddy box," organizers said.

“We are excited to partner with Siskin Children’s Institute for our sixth annual air show supporting children with special needs and their families. It’s always fun introducing a new generation of kids to the hobby of flying radio controlled planes,” says club member and event organizer Tony Bosco. 

Admission is $10 per carload. Snacks and drinks will be available on-site.

"Please plan to bring cash for this event, as we are unable to accept credit cards.  Bring the whole family," officials said.
