The SLRCFA Board of Directors
QuickSTART your RC experience with the best way to learn: the SLRCFA QuickSTART membership.
During your training block, you'll train once a week with an SLRCFA QuickSTART Instructor, learning basic flying, then eventually soloing and getting the sign-off for unlimited flying! Training blocks are as follows:
Maximum fun - You don't have to by ANYTHING including insurance to fly! Fly with our planes, our batteries, our propellers, and we'll get you to solo.
For $50 for adults (24 and over) and $25 for youth (10-23) you get free ground school, a two-month window of free QuickSTART instruction, and all benefits of membership except for voting. Your fee goes towards the rental and upkeep of our training equipment.
Your QuickSTART membership starts as soon as you join, but you'll be in ground school until you get to your two-month training block. You are required to complete your ground school prior to the training block.
After you have completed your Training Block, you can continue with a FULL voting membership at a discount, if you choose. You will need to purchase AMA insurance at that point. SLRCFA is an AMA chartered club, which allows us to train you for eight weeks using our insurance.
Don't hesitate to contact SLRCFAwebmaster@gmail.com or call 636-429-2884 and we'll be happy to help you!
All members are welcome at the Board Meetings.

Imagine enormous jet-powered model aircraft (which cost $30,000) doing low fly-bys at nearly 200 mph. Imagine enormous aerobatic aircraft (12 foot wingspan) that are so nimble, they hover, hanging from their propeller a few feet off the ground, billowing smoke. Imagine full-scale (full-size & piloted) aircraft doing fly-bys and helis landing at the field.
Now imagine thousands attending the 2020 Model Aviation Airshow with six-rotor camera drones filming the entire event!
For the 14TH STRAIGHT year the St. Louis Radio Control Flying Association, or SLRCFA.com, is hosting the annual FLY-IN. The SLRCFA.com facilities (just off highway 44 & 109 in Eureka, MO) are known as among the best in the country. Radio Control pilots from around the U.S. visit St. Louis each year to participate in the Fly-in. Demonstration flights occur every top and bottom of the hour, with everything from model helicopters to zany flying lawnmowers and aircraft that look like Captain America™. Exciting, nail-biting 3D flying, a form of model aerobatic flying where 12-foot, $10,000 airplanes hover and tumble a few feet off the ground, will be on display throughout the event.
Directions to and a flyer for the event may be found at SLRCFA.com/airshow
The SLRCFA is not-for-profit organization representing serious radio control aeromodelers from around the Midwest, particularly the greater St. Louis metro area. The club has existed continuously for 37 years. The club flying field is well-known nationally for its exceptional location and facilities. The club facilities in Eureka are located at 788 Augustine Road, off highway 109 south of US 44 in the Meramec River Valley. For more information, visit SLRCFA.com.

It's exciting to give and get gifts, and we can get the ball rolling December 17th, 2020, from 6pm-9pm. PLEASE NOTE WE'VE REDUCED THE MEAL COST TO $10 EACH! We are also skipping the club raffle, focusing instead on the gift exchange and QuickSTART raffle.
This year we'll have a delicious meal catered by Poor Richards, so click here to re-register and pay online or bring $10 to the event. Typically, we'll serve:
You'll need to get to 1 Coffey Park Ln in Eureka, MO. Here's the building...
We'll talk about our accomplishments in 2019 and our Vision for 2020. A big part of the night will be to make sure our QuickSTART members all get a chance to meet the "larger SLRCFA" membership.
IMPORTANT REASON TO ATTEND: We will vote on the new board members! If you can't be there, we'll allow an electronic vote prior to the meeting.
Bring that airplane, radio or engine, tools or box of stuff you haven't used in years, and donate it to a good cause! We'll auction it off and the proceeds help us pay for fun things like the Christmas Party.
If you bring cash or check donations, we'll fund the Eureka Food Pantry, as we do each year.
