The Jefco Aeromod’lers was founded in 1959 and is 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 and helicopters of all shapes and sizes.
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.
The Jefco Aeromod’lers is a chartered club (#176) of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). The AMA serves as the governing entity of the model aviation hobby. The AMA supports and promotes the hobby through education, school programs, events and provides liability insurance for the chartered club and its members. The AMA also publishes the monthly Model Aviation magazine.
IMPORTANT! All Jefco Aeromod’lers members must be current members of the AMA. Online AMA registration is available at www.modelaircraft.org.
