The Jackson RC Club is a radio control modeling club located in the Mid-Michigan area. We are one of the oldest clubs to have been chartered by the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), an international association of modelers. As a chartered club, all members of the Jackson RC Club must also be members of the AMA. Our club’s mission is to promote, teach, enhance, assist and engage in the flying and advancement of the sport of model aircraft construction and flying. To achieve our mission, the club engages in a multitude of activities throughout each year for the benefit of its members, their guests, and the Jackson area community. We are active in the community through our spring Mall Show at the Jackson Crossing Mall and also through an informational booth at the annual Jackson Balloon Festival. We support the local Salvation Army and local children’s charities through annual donations. Spring and fall fun fly events and a summer annual picnic are enjoyed by all the members and their guests. The fun does not stop when the weather turns cold. Throughout the winter months, the club sponsors indoor flying of small electric, radio controlled aircraft at a local indoor arena. During the summer months, the club meetings are at the Pete Dillon Field at 7:30 pm on the first Wednesday of each month. During winter months, meetings are at the Jackson Toy House Community Room the first Thursday of the month. During summer, every Thursday evening is the designated night for club flying and fellowship. Whether its glow powered, gas powered or electric powered, we are committed to the advancement of all aspects of radio controlled modeling.
Member meetings are held on the 1st Wednesday of each month and start at 7:30PM.
May through September, we meet at Pete Dillon Field.
During the winter months, we meet at the Jackson Toy House Community Room 400 N. Mechanic Street Jackson MI.
Every Thursday evening during the flying season is designated for club flying. Visitors are always welcome. Come join us for food and fellowship. Our grill is usually turning out some delicious burgers or brats (donations appreciated).
