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

This announcement will be updated when new information is available.

Introduction

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, on the Leon County landfill. The entrance to the field has been relocated. We will now be using the main entrance to the landfill. Heading north (south) on Highway 27 make a right (left) turn into the landfill and drive straight back past the weigh station and administrative office. Follow the road as it turns right and look for the new field entrance on your left. Here is a detailed map showing the general location of the field. The field is leased from Leon County, which is paid for by club dues.  Dues also pay for some of  its maintenance, club social activities, and the club newsletter. Facilities at the new field will eventually include a pavilion with several picnic tables. Pilot stations and a port-a-let are already on site.

How to join AMA

The most important eligibility requirement that the club strictly enforces is that each member must maintain a current individual AMA insurance policy. The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) is a national organization that exists to further the hobby. Membership provides more than a million dollars of liability insurance, plus includes a subscription to a monthly magazine that is quite informative.  AMA is also our primary insurance carrier. See the AMA worldwide web page at www.modelaircraft.org
 

How to join SRCC

Feel free to visit the field, attend a club meeting, or contact one of the club officers.  The field is open to public spectators, whenever club members are present. Due to noise restrictions, gas/glow fuel engines are not allowed before 10:00 AM, however the field is open from dawn to dusk, to gliders and electric powered aircraft that meet minimum noise requirements.  Currently there are three sets of bleachers that provide a great view of the activity's...so bring the whole family.  If you're new to R/C, we have an active instructor program and even a club trainer to use!  If you interested in attending a club meeting see the current events section for more information, or the contacts section to get in touch with a club member.
