The Capital City Flyers Club (CCF) is a radio control flying club located on Edmonton's south side. It is incorporated under the Alberta Societies Act as a nonprofit club. We are a chartered member of the Model Aeronautics Association of Canada (MAAC).
The Club caters to sport flyers of all skill levels, from beginners to seasoned veterans. The Club has an open membership policy. Its members come from a variety of backgrounds, therefore bringing a multitude of skills to the Club. The Club members fly a variety of airplanes, gliders, and helicopters and they fly them for the shear joy of the activity and the pleasure it gives them.
The Club is very informal by nature. We hold one or two fun flies per year. Flying instruction is available for beginners. The Club extends a cordial welcome to spectators.
Club meetings are held a number of times during the year. Election of executive positions are held at the October meeting. The meetings are usually low key. They offer a good opportunity to meet other members, to learn more about the hobby, to discuss flying and building techniques.
