Mile High Challenge RC Pylon Race

August 6th-7th (Sat-Sun) Mile High Challenge Flyer

Volunteers needed

BONUS PERK! If you’d like an extra-special ringside seat and a pit pass, we need volunteers!  Pylon racing uses “sideline judging”, that means you’d be calling turns and cuts from the comfort of an easy chair, at a safe distance (300 feet) but closer to the action than regular spectators.  No prior experience necessary.

Warbirds over Denver 2016

Warbirds Over Denver Great was a great weekend of flying with over 70 pilots flying their beautiful warbirds for 3 days of great weather in Colorado. Check out a few photos here.

This annual RC flying event celebrates and honors those who fought in the skies from the US and around the world. The event is a “fun fly” of radio-controlled military aircraft reproductions from World War I to the present.  Aircraft include World War I bi-planes, World War II fighters and bombers, and 200 mph turbine-powered jet models from Desert Storm.

NEW at the flying field – the Jefco Weather Station

Thanks to the efforts of several club members, the Jefco weather station was recently installed.  The weather station records and displays a myriad of information such as temperature, wind, wind gusts and more!  The best feature is the camera, which displays a visual glimpse of the field refreshing every five minutes.  Check it out at www.jeffcoaeromodlers.com/weather.

Meet the Jefco Aeromod’lers RC Club

The mission of the Jefco Aeromod’lers is to promote the building and flying of radio-controlled model aircraft in a safe and responsible manner, and to assist in supporting the goals and mission of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). Founded in 1959, we are a chartered club of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). Since its inception, the club has grown from a small group of RC enthusiasts to a diverse group of nearly 300 members. Members range in age from 11 years old to over 80 years – and includes both male and female pilots – demonstrating all levels of flying skills. Members fly models ranging from scale Warbirds to scratch built, gliders to turbine-powered, wingspans from 14” to 120”, and basic planes without landing gear to sophisticated aircraft requiring up to 10 different controls.
