Atlanta may have the busiest air hub, but the Bowen will have the coolest hanger because the North Georgia Model Aviators are back! Over 25 NGMA Members will be featuring over 50 of their model aircraft from January 15 to February 19, 2022.

JOIN IN our Opening Reception January 15 at

The Bowen sky will be full of planes, all runways will be busy with touch and goes, and every tie down will have another incredible bird. Enjoy a tour with docents to learn the exciting art of building and  flying these crafts. Docents will be available periodically through the week and each Saturday to welcome guests, answer questions and to man the NGMA “Getting Started/Flight Training” Station that will include a flight simulator and lots of information on getting started in the hobby. Learn the types of training models and view the Member’s starter aircraft, complete with all the bumps and bruises of learning to fly.

Featured lectures and demonstrations every Saturday will educate and delight. On January 29 at 1:00pm, expert Bob Marks will demonstrate the basics of the art of flying radio-controlled craft. Another expert, Michael Smallwood, will also planning on his demo of FPV (First Person View) flying, and also teach some basics of the art. Richard Rider will also be back with his handmade 3D printing machine to demonstrate aircraft part-making.

Check back for dates and times of additional scheduled Saturday events and demos during this wonderful exhibit. Our thanks go out to Event Coordinators Michael Smallwood and Greg English as well the very active members of this Club.

The Bowen is located on Highway 9 North in the Historic District of Dawsonville just North of the roundabout. Look for the Old Rock School building between Dawson Junior High School and Lanier Tech Center.
