Membership

The Plane Crazy R/C'ers (PCRC) club has many members that fly a diverse selection of R/C aircraft, and some helicopters. From the new ARF "Park Flyers", to a variety of small and large electric-powered aircraft, to any type of small to very large piston-powered aircraft including sport, scale, aerobatic, and ¼ scale – there's no shortage of expertise and friendly assistance that will be available to a new member no matter what type of R/C aircraft you want to fly.

PCRC Club membership is only $48.00 annually; and all members are required to also be a member in good standing with the AMA for insurance reasons. Membership in the PCRC club entitles a new member to full use of the private club flying site, participation in club sponsored events, and receive free flight instruction (if needed) by a PCRC Certified Instructor. The PCRC Club holds regular membership meetings on the 3rd Monday of each month, an annual membership Banquet in January each year, and participates in several community events annually.
