Welcome to the Ottawa Remote Control Club

Welcome to the website of Ottawa's longest operating radio control (RC) flying club. We have been enjoying the hobby since 1956 and are located on an excellent flying field at 1600 Bankfield Road in the south of Ottawa. 

The majority of flying at our airfield is with electric and gas powered RC aircraft of all sizes, up to and including giant scale. Members also fly EDF jets, helicopters, gliders and drones. If it's RC and it flies, some of our club members likely have flown one. 

We actively teach new pilots to fly aircraft, helicopter and drones, generally from May through October of each year. Training for club members is free and we a number of experienced instructors. 

If you are interested in learning to fly, we can provide advice on the equipment you will need and you are welcome to arrange a visit to experience the hobby. Contact us now for flight training information.

ORCC members fly outdoors year around, on wheels in summer and on skis or floats in the winter. Every season provides plenty of flying opportunities. Our landlord operates an indoor RC arena that adjoins our airfield. Electrosport RC focuses on indoor RC car and truck racing, but also generously provides access to the arena for indoor flying of small models by ORCC members.  

The Ottawa Remote Control Club is a member of the Model Aeronautics Association of Canada (MAAC) and our flying field is MAAC sanctioned. Together we promote safe and enjoyable RC flying for Canadians. 

Come and experience the excitement of RC flying with us. Join now.
