About Our Club
Aero R/C Club was established in the early 60's. We own the property where our field is located and invite you to come out to join in the fun of radio control flying.
The primary purpose of our club is to promote the art of radio controlled flying of miniature (model) aircraft. Secondly, but no less important, is to bring together a community of people interested in radio control flying as a hobby, to exchange knowledge, and to cultivate a friendly association and competitive spirit aimed at the growth of the hobby as a whole.
Aero R/C Club, Inc. is an AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) chartered club - number 350. We fly in accordance with the AMA's safety rules and require our members to maintain their membership with the AMA.
Aero R/C Club gathers for monthly meetings during the flying season (May through September) at the air field, known as Baker Field. Baker Field is located at 2039 Sheridan Road (M-13) just north of Lennon, Michigan. Sheridan Road is the dividing line between Genssee and Shiawassee Counties. You can see more about our field and it's location by clicking 'The Field' tab at the top of the page. During the off-season (October through April) the club gathers for monthly meetings at the EAA Chapter 77 Meeting Room attached to their hangar at Dalton Airport - 3400 Ann Dr. Flushing, MI 48433.
All members and guest are invited to attend the meetings. If you are interested in becoming a member, this is a great way to meet our group and see what we do.
Flying At Our Field
New members are asked to fly with an examiner to show your skills before flying solo. This is for the club's assurance of safety. If you are a beginner to R/C flight, we have a number of instructors available to offer free instruction. You may download our Flight Training Guide from the Member's page (access will be shared upon joining the club).
Guests to our field are asked to fly with one of our members as a sponsor. They will share the details about flying at our field. You will also need to have an AMA membership as they cover pilots with liability insurance.
