Westside R/C Club is a non-profit organization chartered by the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) Chapter 1023 and the International Miniature Aircraft Association (IMAA) Chapter 439. We are devoted to promoting, building, and flying Radio Control Aircraft. Our Flying Field is located on the north side of Yukon Oklahoma; we serve all of the Greater Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area and surrounding communities.
The club has five club officers that make up the Board of Directors, consisting of: President, Vice-President, Secretary-Treasurer, Safety Officer and Field Marshal. The club’s Board of Directors is elected each year in November. The club provides an active training program with designated flight instructors who can help you learn to fly your R/C aircraft. The safety officer appoints the instructors.
The Westside R/C Club requires AMA membership. The (AMA) Membership is mandatory because of the insurance coverage provided by the AMA. Our flying site Holman Field is located at 420 W. Wagner Rd, Yukon, Okla. The site is several acres in size with a generous, and wide, 700’ unobstructed grass runway. A covered shelter, spectator benches, outhouse, and parking areas are provided. The spectators must stay in the spectator areas. (for safety reasons, only AMA members are allowed in the pit area). The property is locked and each active club member is provided a combination. The Field Marshal coordinates all field maintenance and assigns club members to do regular field maintenance and mowing as required.
