The Newport News Park R/C Club (NNPRCC) is a group of people who love to build, fly and/or talk about radio controlled model aircraft. We are chartered by the Academy of Model Aeronautics, known simply as the AMA. There are several thousand clubs similar to ours in this country. Any current member of the AMA is eligible for membership in the NNPRCC.
The NNPRCC members are legally bound by a constitution and by-laws to perform certain functions. We must adhere to the requirements promulgated by the AMA and are responsible to set forth the rules and regulations for our flying site. We hold regular meetings, assess dues, elect officers, and participate in group activities, all for the promotion and enjoyment of radio controlled aircraft building and flying.
The NNPRCC members fly at Newport News Park Aeromodeling Field, located in Newport News, Virginia. Guests are encouraged to drop by and meet with the club members and watch the fun and flying. The busiest flying times are on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
One of the most important aspects of the AMA is education. While building a plane, modelers learn about math, electronics, mechanics, physics, aerodynamics, and perseverance. Any one of these subjects can come in handy on the job market. We at the NNPRCC challenge you to better yourself. Join the AMA and the Newport News Park R/C Club. We have experienced members standing ready to assist you in your new adventure. Be sure to ask one of our volunteer instructors to help you get your new aircraft up into the sky and back down safely.
