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, 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.

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 noon, 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.
