Our RC Airfield is located just north of Great Falls on Highway US 87; Turn left at mile marker 8 on Black Horse Lake Road and it is located about a half a mile from the highway. The paved runway is 560 feet long by 50 feet wide.
Club members meet unofficially at Hardee's for noon lunch every Friday. If you are interested in the hobby, or just a club member that wants to visit, please join us. It's not all airplane stuff, sometimes this group tries to think of ideas to solve the worlds problems.
The club holds monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of each month, 7 p.m. Meetings are held at Hardee's on 10th Avenue South .
Dan and Chuck Woods were present at the Parade Award presentations. It's pretty cool that our Club won 2nd place in the float category for the parade, this being our first time entry. The float was also used up at the Thunderbirds show in July. Dan says he has several ideas to make it even better next year. Congrats to our Club, Dan, and all the guys that helped with that project.

Scale RC Aircraft Fly In August 19
Our next Club event at the RC airport will be our annual Scale RC Aircraft Fly In. This was started about five years ago to encourage pilots to showcase their scale aircraft in their individual hangers. This isn't a sanctioned event, and its a non competitive Fly In event. We encourage you to fly scale planes. If you don't have any, bring what your have and we aren't going to stop you from flying. We would like a good turnout for this one day event.
