Central Carolina R/C Modelers is an Academy of Model Aeronautics Chartered Club, #1257. We are located in the Triad area of North Carolina, just south of High Point. We strive to provide a safe and enjoyable location to enjoy the sport of remote control flying. Visitors and fellow fliers are always welcome to stop in for some Southern Hospitality. Browse our website for more information.
The Central Carolina R/C Modelers was formed in the early 70’s by several local radio control enthusiasts. The field was located at a club member's back 40 until they outgrew the space. We moved to our current location in May of 1991 which covers around 10 acres. We have a dedicated helicopter field with shelter and landing pad. The clubhouse includes a well stocked kitchen with all the comforts of home, a shaded area for those warm summer days, two pit areas with electrical service, and a portable necessary room for quiet contemplation.
Approximately 100 enthusiasts make up our membership with ages ranging from 18 to 80. Our interests include sailplanes, electrics, sport planes, helicopters, and giant scale aircraft. Power is provided by electric, gas, and glow. And information is in an abundance. Just make a bouncy landing or a fancy takeoff and the experts will offer all the advice you need!
Our annual events include Cub Day and an IMAC meet. During the year, members make club trips to area swap shops and fly-ins, the Southeastern Model Show in Perry, GA, the Toledo Expo in Ohio, and the Joe Nall Giant Scale Fly-In in Woodruff, SC.
CCRCM has received the AMA Gold Leader Club Award every year since 2001. In order to recognize the leadership of the top model clubs in the country, the Academy of Model Aeronautics has established the AMA Leader Club Awards. These awards can be earned by any AMA chartered club, by meeting certain standards of community service and activity. There are three levels of AMA Leader Clubs: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Once a club meets the minimum criteria, it qualifies for different levels based on performance. The AMA has established 6 goals and nine electives to obtain Leader Club status. The ultimate recognition, the Gold level, requires that all goals be met and documented. Congratulations to all the club members!
