Collins Model Aviators is a Rockwell Collins sponsored group of radio
controlled aircraft builders, pilots, and enthusiasts. Club meetings
are held monthly on the first Thursday of each month in the main plant
cafeteria, building 140. Employee badges and property passes
are not required for access to this facility. During the winter months,
typically November - March, build sessions are held at the main plant
cafeteria on the second Thursday of every month. Members bring in their
current projects to these build sessions to work on and offer advice to
other builders and to beginners. At the end of the build session season,
a Brown-Bag Beauty Contest and Model Display is held where members show
off their aircraft and the general public votes on them. Collins Model
Aviators also produces the monthly newsletter " FlightLine ".
