The Quarter Century in Aviation Club was formed in 1952 in Vancouver to provide a venue where people of all areas of aviation could meet old friends and create new ones and share their experiences and stories.
The present day Club’s meetings still provide members with the opportunity to share a social time with fellow aviation enthusiasts and to listen to guest speakers. The meetings are held on the third Tuesday of October, November, January, February, March, and April at the Richmond Curling Club, 5540 Hollybridge Way, located in Richmond. A very good buffet is served and, although it is not at the 1952 prices, it is still very affordable.
We are always looking for new members, so please join us at one of our dinner meetings, have a great meal and meet new and old friends!
The Quarter Century Club Executive
March 17, 2015 speaker will be Kelly Williams,
Kelly will be giving a hands-on presentation on radio control model aircraft, covering both hobby and industrial applications for R/C technology of today. He has a quarter century of radio control experience, expanding well outside of the typical aircraft found in hobby stores.
From the hobby perspective, he will discuss and present the current state of turbine propulsion systems, and model jet aircraft with samples on hand to view. The industrial uses of R/C equipment will include helium filled air ships for sports stadiums (NHL, CFL, WHL), heavy lifting ultra-light aircraft prototypes for UBC, and a large twin turbine powered reconnaissance UAV program for which he is the test pilot. He is also the current chairman of the Jet Committee for the Model Aviation Association of Canada.
He will provide in depth descriptions of each project, have images, videos, and samples on hand, and provide as much detail as you could ever want…!
