Corsair club event

FRANKLIN TWP.: The Corsair Model Aircraft Club will hold an open house Aug. 11 to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

The club was launched in 1962 as a Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. employee club called the Goodyear Model Aircraft Club. In 1993, members took over the reins and renamed it in honor of Goodyear’s historic connection to wartime production of the Corsair fighter plane.

In 2009, the club lost its home of nearly 40 years at the Summit County Fairgrounds in Tallmadge and found a new home at 6743 State Route 43, just north of the Kent border.

The free open house will be held from 9 a.m. to at least 4 p.m. and feature flight demonstrations, static displays of all types of model aircraft, and computer and flight simulators.

Club members will be on hand to answer questions about model aviation and talk about club activities.

For information about the club, visit www.cmac.org or contact John Ashley at?jashley@uakron.edu.
