Getting Started

Chattanooga Radio Control Club

WHO ARE WE?

The Chattanooga Radio Control Club is dedicated to the perpetuation and enjoyment of model aviation in all its forms. Our primary responsibilities are the maintenance and safe operation of our flying site at Summit Field, the cultivation of flying and modeling skills by our membership, and promotion of our sport within the community through public events and educational outreach.

WHO CAN JOIN?

Membership in the CRCC is open to everyone. The only membership prerequisite is enrollment in the Academy of Model Aeronautics. Applicants must provide proof of AMA membership.

FLYING AT SUMMIT FIELD

All members must demonstrate flying proficiency as well as knowledge of all AMA and CRCC Safety Guidelines to be allowed open access to Summit Field. Experienced pilots can schedule a ‘check flight’ with one of our instructors. New pilots may be enrolled in a buddy-box training program with a club instructor which will conclude in a solo flight that meets minimum skill requirements. The club has fixed-wing training aircraft for new students who have yet to purchase their own equipment.

WHAT EQUIPMENT SHOULD I BUY?

A visit to our field and discussion with members will help you decide what equipment is right for you. Also, many YouTube videos and other information is available on the internet.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Prospective members should establish e-mail contact with the club president at president@crccflyers.org, or simply mail your contact information to John Davis, CRCC President, 7827 Safari dr. Chattanooga, TN 37421. (see “Join CRCC”) Upon verification of AMA membership and receipt of first year dues, we will schedule your check flight or training program.
