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. Locked Gated Access to RC Field and we are proud of our weather. Itís great to be able to fly RC without restrictions 24/7 Day or Night. We Float Fly at Mittry Lake, main boat launch on Tuesday morning, Sun rise - 10AM.

Our RC Field is now renamed in honor of John Contreras.

Our club meetings are held at the field, Oct. - Apr. First Sunday of the Month, 2PM West side of field.
