This is the third year that the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Flying Club is hosting in partnership with Capital Car Shows, the Thiers Memorial Pistons & Props Fly/Drive-in. The objective of this event is to raise funds to support the Thiers Memorial Endowment Fund (see Thiers Fund for more information). The importance of the event is much more then to raise money, it is to support the future of aviation. The fund provides financial assistance to students to achieve their private pilots license. All proceeds from this event will be directly deposited into the fund. We are proud to announce that we have raised over $2,500.00 for the fund so far! Every cent brings us closer to our goal of becoming a self sufficient aviation club that provides flight training scholarships to deserving students.
It doesn't matter if you drive or fly, students, community members, and pilots are all invited for a great day of food, music, cars, and of course AIRPLANES!
