RC Aircraft Flying Club Website
President Dan Woods maintains our Clubs page on Facebook. He adds content to it each week, please check out the link above, think about joining Facebook, it's kind of fun.
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. We recently set up two flying sites on each side of the parking lot that is designated for helicopters, quadcopters and other drones.
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.
This winter the club holds monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of each month, 7 p.m. Meetings this winter are held at being held at the Longfellow School gym. The Club has worked out an agreement with the school district, that club members can fly small indoor planes, helicopters or quadcopters at the school gym every Wednesday night this winter unless they have a vacation day. You will get an email if something changes. You're all invited to come out and see what all the fuss is about. I got hooked last year, and its something I look forward to each week. Flying is from 6 pm to 9 pm.
We want to thank all members for supporting our Club this year. We thank the Club officers for taking care of the Club's Operation. We thank the members who helped this last year with maintenance and several improvements to the RC Field, field mowing, moving Shacks, putting in chain link fence etc. We especially appreciate our President Dan Woods for his leadership in many club projects (including the 2nd place float in the July 4th parade). It was fun flying and socializing with each of you. Merry Christmas from your webmaster.
