June 27 - July 4, 2015 - CAP Flight Academy

From June 27th through July 4th, 2015 the Civil Air Patrol conducted the 3rd annual Model Aircraft & Remote Control Flight Academy (MARC) at the Smoky Hill Model Flying Field. The purpose of the event is to introduce CAP cadets to radio control model aircraft, and help them gain an appreciation for the hobby.

Over the course of the week, cadets received basic instruction, training on computer flight simulators, hands on experience with R/C aircraft models, and in-flight instruction. At the end of the event, ??? cadets had soloed.
