Tri-County R/C Flyers is a non-profit Radio-controlled model
airplane club, formed to foster and promote the sport and hobby of
flying R/C models, and is chartered by the
Academy of Model
Aeronautics (AMA - Charter 965).
About The Club
Tri-County R/C Flyers has been in existence
since the early 1970's. Membership has dwindled because of the loss of the
flying field we occupied since the mid 1980's but we now have a great new field
at the Anderson airport and our membership is on the rise. Regular club meetings are held at the Anderson Airport
terminal. The club meetings are held on the 1st Thursday of the month from
The club maintains a radio controled model airfield located in
Anderson, South Carolina at the Anderson County Airport, across the street from
the main terminal (see maps).
The club has a designated instructor who is available
to teach beginners. This instruction is offered free of charge in the spirit of
promoting the hobby to newcomers. Even club members who are not dedicated
instructors are always willing to lend a hand and extend advice to beginners.
New and prospective members are always invited to attend the monthly
meetings, and everyone is always welcome to stop by the field and check out the
action for themselves!
If you are interested you are always welcome to join. The club
does require all members to hold a current membership with the AMA but you can fly on our instructors certificate while you are being trained and awaiting your AMA membership.
Our most common weekly flying times are Tuesday and Saturday from about 10 am to 12 pm.
However, there is usually somebody flying in the morning
on any good weather day.
