Welcome to the Louisville Radio Control Club.
We are a non-profit organization serving nearly 400 members and guest who operate radio controlled model airplanes, gliders and helicopters. We are located south of downtown Louisville (KY), in the south-eastern corner of the McNeely Lake Park. We fly seven days a week, weather permitting. The club has lots to offer both members and spectators, making for a great place for local residents to fly and
enjoy the flying. The club features a well-kept 125 feet wide by 670' grass runway, with ample room to fly most model aircraft. We adhere to strict noise and safety regulations, making us a good neighbor to surrounding community. Anybody can come out to watch the flying, and we welcome new members. Pilots can join the club once they obtain a membership to the AMA, a national modelers association.
Pilot visitors are welcome to fly up to three (3) times without joining the club, provided they are insured through the AMA.

When you get to the first four way intersection, instead of turning right to pull around to the parking lot of the DMV,
you take a left and drive past hangers on the left and a equipment rental company on the right.
