As mentioned the RCHA is not just about looking to develop the hobby internally, but is very much equally focused on expanding the horizons of the hobby more towards the public domain.
We are developing a few initiatives that help to achieve this. Firstly the schools programme that, together with local LEA’s, will help to investigate the dynamics of flight using radio controlled helicopters as the vehicle to transfer this knowledge.
Part of the programme, a wider message, is to get in touch with more families and break some well entrenched views that the hobby is full of boring old men in fields. A perception that we as a hobby have just accepted. One, the RCHA aims is to break by reaching out equally to individuals, families and people with disabilities. To this end one of our initiatives is the RCHA family.
Introducing the Barr Family....
The Barr Family is very much Rc Heli Crazy and cover virtually all segments of the hobby.
James Barr (38) – Is the longest serving pilot with a big 90 Nitro heli and a turbine at his disposal
Cathy Barr (36) – Is more in tune with all things scale, she loves the attention to detail and time it takes to make a replication of the full size helicopter in miniature.
Emily Barr (13) – Is gaining her wings but is very much enjoying her new electric 500 sized model.
The first member of our family to come to work for RCHA and would like to introduce himself is :-
13 years old has a 450 sized and has just started with her 500 - prefers electric though might dabble in nitro as she gets older but for now loves the pick up and go feature of electrcis without the fuss of fuel, glow starter and starters....
15 years old, been flying for a couple of years and he just loves to fly his pocket rocket 50 sized Nitro flybarless heli at every opportunity he gets to fly. Both Dan and Emily are the focal pieces in our Schools Programme as well as being an integral part of our media team.
