Meeting Information

Impact of  the Corona Virus (COVID-19)on our monthly meetings

All Fairfax Country Public Schools will remain closed thru the end of the current school season. Since this is a very fluid situation, we have no estimate at present of when when our monthly meetings will resume. In addition to being posted on this site, everyone enrolled in our Google Group Forum will receive instant updates of the latest developments.


Until we can meet again in person your E-board has developed a procedure for virtual meetings using the online Zoom platform and a virtual contest using Google Forms. If you are enrolled in our Google Groups Forum you will receive notifications on dates, times and links to access the meetings & contest.

Next (Virtual) Meeting

Wednesday, August 5 at 7pm


: Haagen Klaus -The Age of the Super Hornet:  A Historical and Scale Modeling Overview of the F/A-18E/F in U.S. Navy Service.

The first two decades of the 21st century saw most of the U.S. Navy's diverse range of carrier-based naval aircraft replaced by the F/A-18 Super Hornet. The presentation reviews the key events in the development, flight test, ongoing operational lifetime, and future of the versatile F/A-18E and F/A-18F. Throughout the talk, key features of the Block I and Block II aircraft will also be examined with an eye to the scale modeler. 


The Heat is on – Any vehicle used in Earth’s desert conflicts.
