The Sault Ste. Marie Radio Control Model Airplane Club members enjoy building and flying miniature aircraft of all varieties. While the primary focus is on radio controlled or remotely piloted aircraft, the membership engages in all manner of aircraft modelling, remotely piloted, tethered (also known as U-Control) and some static display models. The models range from miniature replicas of famous aircraft (and not so famous) to purpose-built models such as training aircraft and competition designs. Many of our members have also acquired multi-rotor drones.

The Club operates outdoor flying sites on Leigh’s Bay – the old Algoma Steel Airstrip, and from Elliot Fields during the summer months and flies indoors during the winter at the Northern Community Centre as part of the city of Sault Ste. Marie Senior’s Activities Program.

The Club has existed in various forms since the 1930s. Its current structure can be traced back 70 years. There is an excellent history report on the website written by Nino Campana. Nino was a worldwide respected modeler. Check out Soo Modellers – History of Aeromodelling in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada

The Club participates in many community projects, where invited. We have demonstrated our models and discussed aircraft and flying at various elementary schools over the years. Members also participate in many of the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre events including Family Days and Bushpane Days. When there were airshows at the Sault Airport, we were there. We have had displays at the Young Eagles events.

Like many benevolent associations today, our membership is challenged with attracting new participants. We are open to new members anytime. You will find the hobby relaxing and challenging at times.

Come give it a try, you won’t be disappointed!
