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
Scale Fun Fly and Air Show Events
Come on out and see the scale model aircraft at the ERCS Scale Fun Fly July 27-28, 2019. These builders & pilots put a lot of effort into finishing their models and are amazing to see on the ground and in the air.
The annual ERCS Air Show is taking place on Saturday, August 10th.
Pylon racing this weekend is cancelled
With much regret, we have decided to call off the Edmonton race this weekend due to the poor weather and field conditions. To everyone who offered to help host this event, thank you! It's great to see the club come together to support an event like this.
Fathers Day Fun
It was a great day at the ERCS field on Fathers Day. Lots of flyers and family were out at the field to enjoy the beautiful weather. Alan Wesley took some great pictures; see them in the photo gallery.
Three generations of the Vu family were out to enjoy the day at the flying field. Each of the young pilots even had their own planes!
