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.
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.
Proud sponsors of the ORCC
Effective immediately the flying facilities of the ORCC are closed to all members.
The Premier has just announced very strict limitations, including the closure of golf courses and the like. It is clear that the intention is that people avoid all possibilities of contact with one another.
We will monitor the situation and respond appropriately. If you have any questions, please contact me directly.
Thank you and stay safe.
