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 full members of the AMA.

Our club’s mission is to promote, teach, enhance, assist and engage in 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 and demonstrations or information booths at local events. We support other local organizations such as the 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.

During the summer months, the club meetings are held at the Pete Dillon Field starting at 7:30 pm on the first Wednesday of each month. During summer, every Thursday evening is the designated night for club flying and fellowship. 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 facility and meetings are held at the Jackson Toy House Community Room (Christoff and Sons Floor Covering) the first Wednesday from October through April. 

Whether its powered by glow, gas or electric, we are committed to the advancement of all aspects and sizes of radio controlled modeling.

Meetings:

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.
