History of Our Club

Our club was started over 35 years ago and has had various flying sites over the years. We have had the current field since 1996 and have been working on improving it a little at a time. By far the biggest improvement was when we put in the paved runway. The club membership includes local flyers plus many winter visitors who enjoy the usually great year-round flying weather. It’s great to be able to fly RC without restrictions 24/7 Day or Night.


Float Flying: (October Thru April) We float fly at Mittry Lake on Tuesday mornings – Sunrise to 10am.


Our field has a paved runway 600 X 60. Shaded pits for morning and afternoon flying. Hwy 95 and Rifle Range Road.  Located at N32d 42′ 27.59″ by W114d 25′ 27.59″

All AMA and MAAC members are welcome to fly. Non-club members need a club member as a sponsor. Check our By-Laws located in the Documents and Forms section.
