Fly With Us....

     The Osoyoos Model Aviation Club Radio Control offers a variety of unique flying fields in the area.  All are compliant with the rules and standards set forth by the Model Aeronautics Association of Canada (MAAC).  We welcome all types of pilots, aircraft, helicopters and gliders.  Please make sure you have your current MAAC membership card with you if you plan on flying. AMA  reciprocal agreement is no longer recognized by Transport Canada. The club offers instructions in various areas of aviation, model building and help from some master builders with years of experience, a new pilot training program (wings) and more.  Daily updates and meetings are posted on this webpage.

Best flying days for the groups of more people:  ** Osoyoos:  Saturdays     ** Okanagan  Falls: Wednesday Evenings

    1.  The Osoyoos site: Osoyoos Airport Google Map (Click Here)   offers an asphalt runway approximately 2477 feet in length (755m) -Runways are 12 and 30, and are 75 feet in width.  This site is great for all aircraft and very jet friendly.  Radio: Osoyoos traffic is 123.2 if you have a scanner. It is a very good idea to have a spotter when flying. We share this site with real aircraft and sometimes pilots do not always read the NOTAM's.  Check our website daily to make sure there is a Notice to Airman (NOTAM) assigned for the dates you plan on flying.  There are no set up or start tables available but, using the back of your vehicle or bringing your own table is ok. There is a windsock and it is recommended you bring your own fire extinguisher and first aide kit if the safety officer for the club is not available.

    2.  Okanagan Falls Site: Keogan Sports Park Google Map (Click Here)  offers a beautiful very large grass field.  Located at the south end at 1525 Cedar Street, this flat 10 acre park is ideal for a variety of aircraft, and especially glider friendly.  This park is fenced on three sides, with no overhead power lines, a large parking lot, no start up tables but, there is an outhouse.  Electric aircraft only. With Peach Cliff in the background, the vistas are big and beautiful.

Note:  All of these sites are sanctioned by MAAC.  Please bring your current MAAC membership card, and all safety gear with you.  Pilots from other clubs are welcome.
