  • New Message from the President.  Hi Guys,

    RCFCT is still waving initiation fees until June 15th 2020.

    Associate membership is no longer offered, and starting this Saturday membership cards will be checked.

    Guests of RCFCT.  There are no personal guests allowed.

    All guests are RCFCT guests and anyone with a MAAC membership may fly at RCFCT as our Guest for maximum of 3 consecutive Days within one week period for one time only.

    Out of town guests may fly by a pass issued by executive members of RCFCT as guests, providing they are MAAC or AMA members.
     
  • New  This is the official announcement to the opening of our flying field. As of Saturday morning at 9:00 AM, our flying field will be open, including the Car Track, to begin our season. I would like all members to practice Safe Physical distancing and respect the boundaries of your fellow member. You must bring your own hand sanitizer and paper towels. I strongly recommend that you wear a mask. Do not leave any form of refuse behind. You must leave with everything that you bring to the field. Keep a minimum of 2 meters from each other in the pit area at all times, and keep the same safe distance from each other at the flight line.

    VERY IMPORTANT. THERE WILL BE NO COLLECTING OF GARBAGE AT THE FIELD, … POP CANS, FOOD WRAPPERS AND SO ON. EVERYTHING YOU BRING WITH YOU, YOU MUST LEAVE WITH. IF YOU ARE FEELING ILL, PLEASE STAY HOME. IF YOU HAVE UNDERLYING HEALTH ISSUES, PLEASE STAY HOME.

    OTHERWISE, LET’S HAVE A SAFE AND FUN SEASON.
     
  • In case you did not receive the Email I just sent out,  the following is an important message from our President:

    Good morning Fellow members. As you can see, the weather is just beautiful, and most of us are at home going crazy and want to get out and fly. Please do not fly at the field at all. We are on Parks Canada property, and if we are breaking the social distancing law, we can get into a lot of trouble and have our permit revoked. Please stay away from the flying field and the car track until further notice. As you all know by now, I am not about imposing any rules and regulations on our members, but in this case I urge everyone to please have some patience and keep safe. Thank you in advance and hope everything will go back to normal asap. I miss you guys … God bless.
  • New The password for the Members Only Area of the Members Information page has been changed to the Code written on the back of your 2020 membership card.  See the note down further for more information.
  • A few brave souls got up early on New Years Day to usher in the new year at our new field.  Gerry Steckling wins the prize for being the first pilot in the air for 2020. I am not sure he gets anything other than cold fingers. Stu Cork takes the honours of first car driver and Kenny Lee for being the first helicopter pilot. I have added the pictures on our Photo Album page.
  • The Fall Fun Fly was quite a success after all the weather delays. We had a pretty good turnout, good food, good weather, and good flying. There was a good variety of aircraft including jets, scale, warbirds, aerobatic, and foamies.  Thank you to all those who helped out.
  • Just letting everyone know that the new field is now open for flying. All flyers must have MAAC and their 2019 RCFCT Membership Cards with them.  Those who have not yet joined must contact Ali and pay their membership dues. Click here for field location. Actual street address is 9769 Reesor Road, 1.4 km north of 16th Avenue on the east side.
  • We now have our own group on Facebook.  Click on the logo below to be directed there.

                   
     
  • I have added a private section to the Membership> Members Information tab.  It contains the 2018, 2019 and 2020 membership lists and the club by-laws as well as some meeting minutes. Click on the "Members Area Only" box and use the code on the back of your membership card as the password, (make sure pop-ups are allowed in your browser for our site.)  This will bring up another page where you can view and/or download any of the lists.
  • In order to be kept up to date on anything of importance, your current email address has to be correct. If your email has changed recently, contact the Membership Officer.

Video of Entrance to New Field

Here is a short video showing the route to take to the parking lot once you have entered the driveway to our new field. Please follow the directions as Christian narrates.

Click on the image which will take you to the video. Then click on the Play icon.  Unfortunately, if you don't have a Google Account, you won't be able to watch the video.  Even if you have a Google Account, you will still need to request access to Google Drive in order to watch it.  I can't do anything about that.
