Radio Control Club (BCRCC) is a non-profit club chartered by the Academy of
Model Aeronautics (AMA) for the promotion of radio controlled (R/C) model
aircraft. The club is based in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts, and is comprised
of approximately 35 members, coming from all walks of life, and is devoted to
the design, construction and flying of R/C model airplanes and helicopters.
Founded in 1984, the Club's name is derived from the region located in the
southern most part of Massachusetts. Today, the Club maintains one field located
in South Dartmouth Massachusetts and a float flying location at Mary’s Pond in
Rochester Massachusetts, and offers free
training to anyone
that would like to learn to fly R/C model aircraft.
Bristol County Radio Control Club is open to all current
AMA members. The
Club holds monthly
meetings, as well
as fun-fly events, and a float fly held annually in the fall at Mary’s Pond.
My introduction to
model aviation came to be with a visit to a New Bedford Regional Airport Air
show some ten plus years ago. Two gentlemen by the name of Don Jackson and
Herbert Andrade gave me a brief introduction to Model Aviation as they were
flying their models at the air show. I later met them at the flying field and
have been hooked ever since.
club has seen its share of outstanding fliers and builders. Some of
those individuals are still with us but sadly some have passed on. The
continuing goal of this organization is to educate the local youth in
our community with the same desire and passion that they had and we have
for model aviation.
Now serving my 9th
term as president I am proud to be part of an organization that promotes
this hobby to young and old alike. It is thru the efforts of the
officers and active members that Bristol County Radio Control Club has
been a viable modeling group for over 30 years and continues to get
stronger each year. I look forward to the future of model aviation and
the continuing development of our club. All of us associated with
aviation, be it with models or full size aircraft, know that flying is
the second greatest thrill known to man. Landing is the first!
Secure the future of Model Aviation, Grab a child and go flying!
