1972 the Trenton model club joined with the Ewing model group and formed the
CFFG. At that time the club was focused

the loss of interest in the larger model it was difficult to find new members.
had a huge field at Coyle however the surface and thick weeds were not kind to
FAC Scale models. The big change was
obtaining permission to fly at a Turf Farm.
With the availability of well-maintained grass fields the club is able
to fly FAC Scale models almost without worry.
Since the move to the Turf Farm we have seen a major growth in flying
and FAC Scale members. The club now
consist of 8 FAC flyers, 2 Nostalgia/AMA modelers, and 1 member who fly’s a
mixture of his own design diesel models and scale.
For 2023 we have 3 contests planned. 2 FAC with a little AMA hook and 1 AMA Nostalgia contest. All are AMA sanctioned contests and offer National Cup events
