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 500 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 in the back corner room. 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. Club meetings are held at 7 PM at Paris Gibson Education Center Gym the first Wednesday of every month.

New Youth membership, $40 per year. The youth has to be under 19 years old, needs to have Free AMA registration.

Full family membership is $85.
We do have an Annual Special. New Members joining after September 1, can pay their $85 dues, but this membership will be for the remainder of 2019 and include 2020.
