Our Mission

We are an Academy of Model Aeronautics Gold Leader Club and a 501c(3) non-profit public benefit corporation, striving to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for our members and the community to enjoy the hobby of model aircraft flying, and to provide exposure to model aviation and the broader fields of science and technology through hosting and participation in local events and outreach to local schools and community organizations.


Our airfield is located on 240 acres of federal Bureau of Reclamation land in Thermal, California, just east of the 86 Expressway.  We have a 70′ x 865′ asphault runway, concrete pit area with shade, a separate helicopter/control line pad, and portable restroom facilities.  The field is available to members dawn to dusk 7 days/week.  Visitors are welcome to come and see our field and enjoy our flying anytime the field is open – best bets are weekend mornings.
