Club of the Month June, 2022

Dare County Radio Control Flyers is a club that promotes radio control model aviation as a sport and recreational activity at the home of the Wright Brothers first flight, the Outer Banks of North Carolina. 

Recently earned their Silver Leader Status – Introductory Pilot Program, TAG Grant, Flying Site Improvement Grant, Community Outreach, and more. 

The “club” has been around since 1983 but officially became an AMA chatter club in 1987 with 6-7 members.  It has been in the same location ever since.  Dare County provides the club with the land and it sits adjacent to a gun range and county municipal services. Currently has around 20 loyal members. 

The runway is a 400′ x 75′ grass runway. They share bathroom facilities and a workshop with the gun range when needed. “Bring what you need” field. 

Being near the “birthplace of aviation”, they participate in many community events: The First Flight Society,  

Wright Brothers’ National Park, and the Dare County “Youth Aviation Day”. They also host Boy & Girl Scout events at their field and also participate in “National Model Aviation Day”. 

They are proud of their community involvement and sharing the love of aviation.

  1. It was very exciting to learn we were named the AMA’s ‘Club of the Month’ for June 2022. Since then, our club has moved up to become a ‘Gold Leader Club’ and has hosted TAG events in October 2022 and October 2023.

    Our membership now stands at 36, and we are looking to the future to further improve and expand our club and facilities.
