CIAM Flyer (5-2022) - Model building school as the key to success

Why the Czech Raketomodelářský Klub Krupka (RMK) has so many European and World Champions – including in the junior class, by Hans Langenhagen.

The club is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2022 and members can look back on a successful half century of rocket model sports. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia separated into two countries, the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic. Factories closed and people had to reorientate themselves in a labour market that was only slowly re-emerging. Many clubs did not survive this process.
