Special Notice - Effective March 2, 2020 the current SRCC flying site has been permanently closed due to construction.

The Seminole Radio Control Club (SRCC) is a non-profit, open membership, AMA chartered club (#216) located in Tallahassee, Florida. The airfield is located 4.1 miles east of Tallahassee on US 27 South, next to the Leon County landfill. The entrance to the field has been relocated. Heading north on Highway 27 there is an entrance on your right just past the main entrance to the landfill and just before you reach the church. Turn there and follow the road straight back through the trees and you will come to our field. Alternatively, if you are headed south on US 27, turn left just past the church. There is a cut-through in the median so that a left turn can be made. Here is a detailed map showing the general location of the field. Also, here is a picture of the field and the surrounding area from Google Earth. The field is leased from Leon County, which is paid for by club dues. Dues also pay for its maintenance, club social activities, and the club newsletter. Facilities at the field include a pavilion with several picnic tables, and a portable rest room for all day enjoyment.
