NOVEMBER 15, 2014 - REGULAR CLUB MEETING
Regular club meetings are held the third Saturday of each odd numbered month (JAN, MAR, MAY, JUL, SEP, NOV). Unless otherwise notified, meetings begin at 12:00 Noon and are held at the CCRC airfield on Pitner Rd.
The Cobb County Radio Control Modeler's Club (CCRC) was founded in 1962 and became Chartered Club #736 located in District V of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). Today, CCRC is one of the largest, and oldest AMA chartered clubs having been continuously operated for more than 50-years.
The Cobb County Sports Aviation Complex (the CCRC facility), is supported, in part, by the Cobb County Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department and features both paved and grass runways, a separate helicopter flying area and covered pit areas that house 18 fixed-wing and 12 rotary-wing pre-flight work benches. Each bench area has an AC power source nearby to meet electrical needs.
There are three spectator areas which provide bleacher-style seating, two which face the aircraft flying area, and one facing the helicopter flying area. The site also has permanent restroom and picnic accommodations in its main pavilion as well as a First Aid station.
Club members are required to be current members, in good standing, of the Academy of Model Aeronautics in order to fly at the facility. All RC Pilots, spectators and guests must abide by CCRC field rules, as well as those of the AMA. Our first concern at CCRC is the safety of our members and visitors; so please observe, and abide by, all safety initiatives at all times while at the field.
Be safe... Have fun!
