The Edmonton Radio Control Society (ERCS) was formed in 1959 with the goal of providing safe and enjoyable flying facilities for the sport of flying radio controlled aircraft. Whether you are into nitro, gas, electric, or turbines, you will find pilots that share your interest. The club offers ground school and in-flight training for new pilots at no cost to its members. Our flying field is located just a few minutes east of Edmonton in Strathcona County. See aerial view of the field.
Notices & Upcoming Events
Message from Zone Director
As most of you are probably aware, the Alberta Government has once again imposed further restrictions in the ongoing battle with the Covid-19 Pandemic.
We in the model airplane hobby are not permitted to fly our RPAS (Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems) indoors or outdoors. All indoor and outdoor social gatherings are prohibited by law December 12. I contacted Alberta Health Services to inquire as to the flying of model airplanes (RPAS), and unfortunately no joy. The fine is $1000 if you get caught.
I know, I don't like it either, but unfortunately this is where we're at during this present unpleasantness.
Please hang in there, hopefully relief will be coming in the not too distant future.
"Glad Tidings" to you all during this festive season, I look forward to seeing a great many of you in the New Year. Please take care of yourselves, and take care of each other.

Alan Wesley submitted his photos from the Clear Lake Float Fly held in September 2020. Check them out in the photo gallery.
Due to the increase of COVID-19 cases in the Edmonton area as well as the current restrictions on guest pilots at our field we have decided to cancel the fall Electric Fun Fly and Combat events this year. The good news is that this will give you more time to purchase an electric Bloody Wonder combat plane kit from Muryl or Dave C. They're inexpensive and you could use them at the next combat contest or electric fun fly when things get back to normal :)
Don McGowan, a former MAAC zone director for Alberta, passed away 26 July 2020. There was a Celebration of Life for Don on Aug. 6th, 2020 in Stony Plain.
