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
Covid 19 Update
To all members:
At a special executive meeting last night deal with the field closure due to the Covid 19 virus the following decision was made.
Because we are on County of Strathcona land and we have a License to Operate with them we must follow their direction on closures. Their direction is that all recreation facilities and fields are closed as per the Order from the Chief Medical Officer of Health for the Province of Alberta. Not following the County’s guidelines would put our License to Operate in jeopardy.
Having said all of that we are in constant contact with the County and as soon as they open their recreational facilities and fields we will be able to open ours.
We also know that some of you have paid your fees and are not able to fly. If this continues the board is prepared to deal with the lost of flying time and will announce measures when it becomes apparent that we will not be able to fly this summer.
Please be patient during this crisis and remain safe and healthy.
ERCS Facilities Closed
Recognizing that COVID-19 represents an unpredictable and potential hazard to our members and guests, the Edmonton Radio Control Society Executive has made the decision to close the Air Field and our Facility until further notice. We will monitor the situation and when the Province announces that it is safe for group activity again we will open the field and facility.
Stay Safe, Stay Healthy and we will see you when things are better
