Other Nearby R/C Aircraft Clubs

Utah's climate and topology are ideal for flying model aircraft for much of the year, and the state boasts many clubs catering to special interests and sportsmen in certain areas. Here's a partial list; if you're aware of clubs I missed, please post a comment.
  • UTE: The Ute R/C Association is, of course, us. We're an AMA-sanctioned club, flying principally out of our club field and the (future) SLC Modelport in Salt Lake City, UT. We principally fly glow, gas, and electric powered aircraft. However, a frequent refrain heard from club members is "if it flies, bring it!"
  • BRC: The Bridgerland R/C Club serves Cache Valley. They run a Google Groups Forum for their members and guests.
  • CCRCC: The Cedar City Radio Control Club, an AMA sanctioned club, flies out of Cedar City about sixty miles north of St. George. Their home field, the wonderful Three Peaks Modelport, is located on BLM land and is open to the public.
  • CUPRA: Central Utah Pylon Racing Association. CUPR hosts 1/2A sized glow and electric E-200 (200 sqare inches of wing area) pylon races. They typically race on the second Saturday of the month from March to November. See the website for racing schedule and location. There are no membership requirements. Just show up and race!
  • DWRCC: The Desert Wings R/C Club, AMA charter club #4322, flies out of Price, Utah. They have a nice flying site.
  • FRCC: The Falcon R/C Club, AMA sanctioned club #4396, operates out of Hill Air Force Base near Ogden, UT. You must be able to get on-base to reach their site, and, of course, the flight ceiling is 400 feet.
  • IMSF: The InterMountain Silent Flyers, AMA sanctioned club #411, are principally devoted to unpowered and electric flight along Wasatch Front. They fly Point of the Mountain, Herriman Field, and the IMSF Club Field in Kearns.
  • NMA: Nampa Model Aviators flies out of Nampa, ID, about 6 hours north of Salt Lake City.
  • NURCAC, the Northern Utah R/C Aircraft Club, has an active web site and a flying field in Ogden, UT.
  • RPRCC: The Remote Possibilities R/C Club in St. George, UT hosts the very popular "Jet Rally" every year, in which some of our members participate. We Utes don't have a February fun-fly; instead, we go to St. George to party with this very active club.
  • SDM: The South Davis Modelers have a flying site in Davis County.
  • UHA: The Utah Heli Association hosts the Southwest International Radio Control Helicopter Association (IRCHA) fun-fly in Saratoga Springs each year. UHA and UVA have a frequency-sharing agreement: if you fly with UHA at their field, you must not fly on 72MHz or other aircraft-designated bands. 2.4GHz, of course, is OK. The UHA maintains a discussion forum.
  • UFLY: The Utah Flyers are an ad-hoc "outlaw" Utah County-based group. They are famous (or is it notorious?) for hosting plans for the "Wild Wing", a 36" flying wing designed for aerial combat. They have an active forum where they coordinate activities. You really have to watch a combat day some time. It is something else!
  • UROC: The Utah Rocket Club sponsors regular model rocketry competitions and launches. Their annual "Hellfire" event attracts a lot of R/C flyers and rocketeers alike.
  • UVA: The Utah Valley Aeromodelers, AMA sanctioned club #2834, with a regular flying field on the north end of Utah Lake near Saratoga Springs and a Pylon Racing site in Eagle Mountain, serves a diverse modeling community with a focus on regular events.
  • WAM: The Wasatch Aero Modelers, AMA sanctioned club #1350, are based in Syracuse, Utah, with members in Weber, Davis, and Logan Counties.

Bridgerland R/C

For those of you in Cache Valley, apparently Bridgerland R/C is your home away from home! Just discovered this one today. Added to the list above.

Utah Helicopter Association

Found the Utah Helicopter Association today, and added them to the list. Also took the time to update some other descriptions and links.

Other Nearby R/C Aircraft Clubs

There are many aircraft clubs but in one of them is stated by me, The North West Model Aircraft Club (NWMAC)is a radio controlled model aviation club based on the outskirts of Derry in Northern Ireland. The club's airfield occupies a 6 acre site which was visited by me while I travel there which is leased from Derry City Council and has two runways, one of which is tarmac and measures 60*20 meters. The club has a yearly membership of approximately 50 members. The club is affiliated to the Northern Ireland Association of Aeromodellers and the British Model Flying Association.
