FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Georgia Model Aviators' open house on Sept. 28 was a huge success, organizers say.

The Georgia Model Aviators (GMA) in Forsyth County, which meets on a 65-acre Forsyth County property, has a membership of about 300 pilots from across North Atlanta. The airfield is located at 8250 Old Federal Road, Ball Ground, in North Forsyth.

"We welcomed several thousand visitors, many stayed all day long," said David Roberts, a lead event organizer and GMA training coordinator. "The flight line was constantly active, so guests got an eyeful."

The event also raised about $3,000 for the Independence Fund to help buy a specialized wheelchair for a United States veteran severely injured in the line of duty.
