Welcome to the ARCA Club
The members of the Alabaster Radio Control Association ( ARCA ) would like to invite those with an interest in joining our club to visit our facility and meet our members. Elsewhere on this site is detailed information on requirements of becoming a club member and enjoying our wonderful flying facility. Contact information as well as a membership application is also available on this site.
Our Field Location is at Limestone Park; 2400 Highway 31, Alabaster, AL Map: http://binged.it/1rUkXe6 Please note, the field is enclosed by a lockable gate. If the gate is open, feel free to come in and look around and meet the club members that are there.
Meetings are held in the library at the Thompson Intermediate School in Alabaster on the first Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM. Visitors are always welcome.
1. To promote and encourage interest in model aviation.
2. To provide instruction for the novice pilot.
3. To promote our hobby to the community in a positive way and thereby stir interest in model aviation.
4. To teach and explain the basics of aviation through special arrangement with school officials in a classroom atmosphere.
5. To provide an avenue for model aviation enthusiasts to meet their fellow modelers and enjoy the fellowship of our common interests.
6. To teach and promote safety in accordance with AMA and ARCA club rules and guidelines.
Our training program is an on-call system for our trainees. We ask that when a trainee wants to use our program, he/she calls or emails the instructor to arrange to meet the available instructor at the flying field for training at the pre-arranged time. Please call at least 24 hours in advance if possible. Training days for non-soloed pilots varies, although training can be held any time the field is open, with the exception of special events and field maintenance.
