We meet once a month at our flying field (in the summer) or at the Paducah Parks and Recreation Senior Citizens Building (in the winter). Our flying field is open for flying the entire year long to current Academy of Model Aeronautics members. We have introductory pilot training available in radio control, control line, and free flight. If you would like to find out more about our flying club, please contact Randall Hopkins by phone at 270-554-9920 or by email at chasreeves@comcast.net We welcome others to join us.
