New Youth membership, $40 per year. The youth has to be under 19 years old, needs to have Free AMA registration. Parents are responsible for transportation to and from the field, as the Club does not provide a babysitting or transportation. A parent should be present while the youth member is at the field, unless the member is old enough to drive. This does not allow the parent to fly, only the youth member. Full family membership is $85.

Appointed Club Officers:
Co-Safety Officers, Don Woods and Dan Horinek, and Webmaster Bruce H.
There is a Federal Law that requires all flyers of rc planes, quads, etc weighing over .55 pounds register with FAA. The cost is $5 for a 3 year period. It is not a Club requirement, but FAA requires it. It's an individuals responsibility to register and attach this number to your aircraft, drone etc.
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.
Our monthly meetings are held on the first Wednesdays of each month, at 7 pm, in the Conference Room at Hardees 10th Avenue South. Exception for the July meeting that will be held at Dan's house on June 27, see the Minutes for details.
