Hello and thank you for your interest in the Northern Connecticut Radio Control Club (NCRCC). We are a robust group of men and women, young and old, active pilots and social members who share a deep interest in the hobby of aeromodelling. Some of our members are new to the hobby and are in varying stages of learning to safely operate their models. Most of our members are sport flyers and come to our field to just “poke holes in the sky”. Still other members enjoy competing in specialized areas of aeromodelling such as pylon racing, scale, helicopters, aerobatics, indoor flying, soaring, etc.
One of the noteworthy attributes of NCRCC is that we are a very active club and committed to advancing the hobby of aeromodelling. We sponsor multiple events throughout the year because of the dedicated volunteerism and solid support of our members. We are a team. We have regular monthly meetings that address club business issues along with assorted presentations, food, a raffle, and camaraderie.
The NCRCC flying field on Green Road in Ellington, CT is recognized as one of the finest. Under the leadership of our Field Marshall/Safety Officer, our members not only do an outstanding job of collaboratively helping to maintain the field, but we also offer a pavilion, picnic tables, convenient parking, outhouse accommodations, and more for the comfort of our members and visitors. We invite you to visit our flying field and to attend our general membership meetings. Guests who request to fly must have a current AMA membership in good standing and follow all AMA and NCRCC safety and other rules.
NCRCC offers an open membership. When you visit us, be sure to introduce yourself to our club officers and to our members. It will help all of us to get to know one another and to collaboratively enjoy our hobby of aeromodelling.
Please take the time to tour the entire NCRCC website. You’ll learn of our marked commitment to safety, to friendship, and to volunteerism. You’ll understand the type of club we are. We are especially proud of our members, of our accomplishments in advancing the interests of aeromodelling, and of our club.
