Ep 60 - Southern Tier Aero Radio Society (STARS)

The Southern Tier Aero Radio Society, founded in 1935 as the Olean Model Airplane Club, is easily one of the oldest clubs in the United States.. pre-dating the entire AMA by a full year.  STARS, as it is now known, was instrumental in helping to develop the Giant Scale model aircraft movement in the mid 1970’s and achieved national fame with magazine articles and covers showing their 1/4 scale Bristol Scouts, which launched the Giant Scale revolution.  The STARS has received numerous awards and recognitions including the Historic Preservation Award, the Award of Excellence and has been an AMA Gold Leader Club since the 1990’s.  Their club field features both grass and geo-textile runways, a spectator fence, a covered open-air pavilion and a pilot shelter.Learn more about the Southern Tier Aero Radio SocietyLearn more about the AMA
