About The
RC Flyers Club

The On Top if The World RC Flyers and its members are affiliated with the Academy of Model Aeronautics, AMA which is a world-class association of modelers organized for the purpose of promotion, development, education, and the advancement of model aircraft activities.  The On Top of The World RC Flyers and the Academy provide leadership, organization, competition, communication, protection, representation, recognition, education, and scientific/technical development to its members regarding remote control model aircraft.

The club Web site contains pertinent club information, photos, and lists the officers for contact information. Most of the members both build and fly model aircraft and have come here from various states within the U.S. specifically because of our field.   For new flyers, the club maintains a flight-training program.  The club encourages the general public to visit the field by hosting two events. An Open Spring Fly-In and Fall Fly-In, for electric, glow and gasoline powered aircraft. Monthly meetings are held on the first Monday of each month and the club sponsors for its members and spouses a spring picnic/fun-fly, and a Christmas party.  When the weather cooperates, each morning will find a friendly gathering of members at the new pavilion where one can enjoy friendly conversation and a beautiful pastoral scenic view while resting between flights.  However, the greatest service that the club provides to its membership is the opportunity to have fun

Currently, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the OTOW RC Flyers Club meets on the 1st Monday of every month at the Flying Field at 9:00am. Please bring your own chair as seating is limited.

History of
The RC
Flyers Club

The On Top of The World RC Flyers club first started in 1990 when a group of seven residents obtained permission to fly RC model aircraft in a field behind the residential area.  Since then, the club has grown to over 170 members and has moved the field three times.  The current location remains within our gated community and is situated on a fourteen-acre site with a 600 by 150 foot asphalt and adjacent grass runways.  This new flying site was completed and dedicated in October 2019.
