Aeromodelling Club :

All Petarians will recall the Aeromodeling club at Cadet College Petaro.  On Parents' Day, when we had Sind regiment fire guns, the leftovers from parade would do a war demo with small planes flying overhead.  The Aeromodeling Club belongs to Petaro legacy just like riding, shooting and the parade. 

The tradition of Aeromodelling Club started when CCP was established in 1959. The first officer in charge of the club was Prof. M.A. Bhatti (late), and the first president of the club was (late) Sultan Ahmed Khan Afridi 33/Jinnah. Hundreds of cadets have benefited from this club during these past 52 years.

During 2007-2010 however, the club was not really functioning as it did not have model aircraft and other equipment for the cadets to use or learn from.  It thus was reduced only to a theoretical club.  In order to rejuvenate this tradition of Petaro, the Petarian Foundation decided to provide model aircraft and equipment in order to benefit the cadets. After discussion with the In Charge of the Club, Mr. Farhan Hussain, the Foundation has donated the equipment to the club valued at Rs. 118,000.

The main equipment includes Two Trainer Aircraft with petrol engines made in Japan, remote controls made in Japan, and a Flight Simulator software.  In addition a complete lot of spare parts were also given to ensure that these are maintained.

A detailed list of the equipment given is as follows:
