Texas Wings RC Flying Club
Who We Are...
The Texas Wings RC Flying Club, AMA Charter Club #1521, was established in 1983 for the enjoyment and promotion of the hobby of building and flying Radio Controlled Model Aircraft. Club membership has typically averaged 100 members, each from a diverse background of professions, including the aviation and aviation electronics Industries. Texas Wings offers a relaxed, family-oriented membership that focuses on 'sport flying', promoting the hobby through community involvement, commitment to flight-training, and support of new aeromodelers. We participate in community events at local air-shows, museums, and educational facilities to promote the awareness of the sport of radio controlled aircraft. Please feel free to stop by the field while members are flying and enjoy the hobby.
For our club, community involvement is very important. Once a year the club selects a charity and we host an event to help out a non profit organization. The events are full days of fun, flying, and fellowship at our club flying field. Each pilot is typically asked to bring a donation toward the charity; be it toys, can food or monetary. Typically the donation is approximately $10 in value as a landing fee. Although this seems like a small fee, most pilots will bring multiple donations for their landing fees. We also raise money throughout the afternoon by selling raffle tickets for donated items and lunches. By raffling off items we hope to raise more money in ticket sales than what the items are valued at. Any donation is greatly appreciated!
At one time, our flying field was located east of Hwy. 156 in the Heritage Trace area. When the land was developed for new homes, we were able to move to our current location. Our Fly-In Field is located at: GPS Coord. Lat 32º59'20"N Lon 97º28'10"W, From downtown Fort Worth, take 35W North (~11 miles) to the 287 exit (exit 60).
