Sid Gates, Aeromodeling Pioneer
Recipient, 2014 Academy of Model Aeronautics Hall of Fame Award
In 2014 long-time Denver R/C Club member Sid Gates was selected by the Academy of Model Aeronautics Hall of Fame Selection Committee, composed of past AMA presidents and a selector from each AMA district, to be inducted into the AMA Model Aviation Hall of Fame. This award recognizes aeromodelers whose contributions to model aviation over the years have been outstanding and have improved the sport/hobby and increased its prestige and stature. Induction into the AMA Model Aviation Hall of Fame occurs annually. Selection is based on the individual’s contributions to model aviation, which may include competition, design, experimentation, leadership, education, organization, writing, publishing, manufacturing, or other related activities. Emphasis is on the accumulated contributions in one or more of these categories over an extended period of time. The program is administered by the Academy of Model Aeronautics.
Congratulations, Sid, for this well-deserved award!
