The Jackson Radio Control Club

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 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 gymnasium. During the summer months, the club meets at the Pete Dillon Field at 7:30 pm on the first Wednesday of each month. During winter months, we meet at the Jackson High School Cafeteria. 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.
