Clovis Area Modelers (Clovis RC) currently has two fields where we fly RC model aircraft.
Our home is a luxuriously manicured grass field; compliments of the City of Clovis. It is conveniently located at the northeast corner of Sierra and Temperance avenues in beautiful Clovis California. This area is suitable for flying electric powered models with wingspans of 60 inches or less. All Pilots must display Clovis RC membership and proof of current AMA insurance on their person at all times. All AMA rules are to be observed.
When not flying at our home field, we fly larger high performance models at our alternative “Peg” field located in Reedley CA. This field has a paved runway that is over 3000 feet long and 50 feet wide. 700 feet has recently been resurfaced and a large shaded concrete (120’x26′) pit area complete with Solar & Generator powered 110vac electricity. This pit area opens up to a 120’x15′ tarmac. This field is suitable for larger models: IMAC, EDF, turbine jets, gasoline, nitro powered, helicopters etc. There are no size limits and all pattern maneuvers are acceptable and encouraged. All those with “Full” club membership have access to our high performance field. We welcome spectators but due to our security gates all spectators are required to be accompanied by a club member.
Why Join Clovis Area Modelers to Fly at the Park?
The Clovis Area Modelers Inc. also known as Clovis RC Club has a special use permit with the City of Clovis allowing its members to operate electric powered radio controlled aircraft at Sierra Meadows Park. Our agreement with the City of Clovis requires Clovis RC Club to maintain a liability insurance policy; naming the city insured, in order to operate RC aircraft at the park. It is critical that anyone wishing to operate models in the park be current members of the Clovis Area Modelers Club and the AMA, and to display current proof of each on their person at all times while operating models in the park.
The City of Clovis has been very kind to allow Clovis RC Club Members the privilege of flying in the park and it is our responsibility to keep them in a secure position with regards to liability insurance. The Clovis area modelers Club is open and welcoming to new members. If your operations do not require a hard surface runway, a park flyer only membership might be right for you. The cost of the park flyer membership is $40 per year and does not give access to Peg Field. All members pay a one-time Initiation fee of $100.
Club membership is free to active military and youth 19 yrs and under; however, AMA Insurance is still required; see the membership information at the Academy of Model Aeronautics website.
Clovis Area Modelers Inc. is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization. All proceeds go towards our mission.
