With the ever growing popularity of electronic children’s gifts such as tablets and video games coupled with today’s lifestyle, spending time together with the family is often hard to achieve without something to act as a catalyst. A great way to encourage family fun is to give gifts that parents and children can enjoy together. As Manhattan’s premier destination for radio control models, specialty toys and educational products, Pilotage Fun & Hobby specializes in bringing this engaging, gratifying and traditional – though rapidly evolving – form of recreation to a younger generation as well as family members that are often overwhelmed by digital entertainment.
Under the watchful eye of Managing Director William Dickey, Pilotage Fun & Hobby first opened its doors in March 2012. Dickey envisioned a destination that offers entertaining, innovative, and most importantly, interactive products to satisfy the needs and stimulate the minds of consumers with discriminating tastes, from knowledge-seeking school kids to hobbyists seeking more sophisticated outdoor activities to share with their children. Please let us know if you would like any additional information or images, if you would like to arrange an in-store demo, or if you would like to speak with Managing Director William Dickey. The staff are professionally trained and fully qualified to repair and maintain all the models sold in the store.
