Welcome to the Fluvanna County Radio Control Flying Club (FCRCFC). Our members are all about model aviation in all its forms – fixed-wing, helicopters, quadcopters AKA drones, control line, free flight – you name it, if it flies, someone in the club has probably flown it at one time or another. We’ve got a great flying site next to the Fluvanna County Landfill on route 6. Here are directions and a map to our field.
The public is welcome to join us at our flying field any time the gate is open, and we are always looking to introduce new folks to the fun and excitement of model aviation. Besides flying for fun, we hold several public events each year, including a major fundraising event that benefits Fluvanna County nonprofits. If you are interested in joining FCRCFC, please see the contact page for further information. To become a club member, you must join the Academy of Model Aeronautics, and only club qualified pilots may fly at the field by themselves. Club and AMA membership information/forms and other useful information can be found at the Club Information page.
January 13, 2019
Spring is not far off, so it’s time to really get serious about flying again! Here’s what’s coming in the couple months ahead:
- Bingler Memorial Fly In Saturday April 13th.
- Heli Domination May 17 – 19
- Fourth Annual Wings and Wheels 4 PAWS Car Show and Model Aviation Extravaganza fundraiser for Fluvanna animal rescues Saturday June 8th.
The first club meeting January 12th was a huge success, with well over 50% of our club members in attendance – thanks for coming out! Major discussion topics were a spring construction project to double the size of our permanent picnic shelter, putting on a club family picnic sometime this year, and several other ideas that should make the 2019 flying season the best ever!
Details, flyers, other info coming, watch this space and events tab. Meanwhile, build something new, fix something that’s broke, or exercise the truism that, no matter HOW many planes you’ve got in the hangar, there’s ALWAYS room for one more 🙂
