Aeromodelling is the design, construction and flying of model airplanes, helicopters and rockets. It is both a Hobby and an International Sport Model aviation’s power to excite the imagination and generate enthusiasm has made it a truly international activity with many thousands of participants and hundreds of ongoing activities worldwide. Today, you can build model airplanes of incredible realism and fly them as expertly as a real pilot sitting at the controls. Aeromodelling helps to understand Physics, improve hand and eye coordination, understand the importance of team work, learn to cope with success and failure, create 3D objects, learn to work with plans, use hand tools etc. Aeromodelling is a wonderful form of self expression that gradually leads you to a successful career as a Pilot, Aircraft Designer, Aircraft Maintenance Technician, Aero-Space Engineer etc.
Model aircraft are flying or non-flying small sized replicas of existing or imaginary aircraft using a variety of materials including paper, plastic, metal, synthetic resins, wood, foam and fiberglass.The most commonly types are balsa wood, polystyrene and card stock. Flying designs range from generic gliders to accurate scale models, some of which can be very large; static display models range from mass produced toys to highly accurate models requiring thousands of hours to produce for display in museums. Aircraft manufacturers produce models of their own full sized aircraft both for wind tunnel testing and for advertising.
Global Aero-Sports is the first company in India that has taken concrete steps to make the fascinating world of model airplanes affordable and accessible to everyone.
Our Founder & CEO, MRK Menon has been providing training in Aeromodelling by way of kits, Demos Workshops and Franchisee Training Programs since 2009. Accordingly, we have introduced Model Aviation as a subject in schools starting from the 5th grade onwards. We start with the History of Aviation, Principles of Flight, etc and soon you will be building and flying beautiful chuck gliders and rubber powered model airplanes at the entry level. Our brilliant instructors and lessons will make the subject come alive in the classroom with the use of Video, Slides, Demo models, Flight Simulators etc. By the time you reach Grade 10 you will be building/flying Radio Controlled Model Planes which is an international sport recognized by the Federation Aeronautique International (Paris) and the Academy of Model Aviation based in the USA
More than 65 schools and 60,000 children all over India have benefitted from Mr. Menon’s various programs/services.
