Sign to field on Route 49 Edge with Smoke Kevin and Joe's P47s Dick B and his T28 Sopwith Camel Mitch Witch B25

Welcome to the Oneida Lake Flyers of Constantia, NY, a club devoted to the safe and fun flying of radio controlled (R/C) model airplanes.

We are a simple club and could probably best be described as casual. Our main goals are to have a nice flying field and to fly model airplanes, as well as socializing and enjoying the company of the other members. We do not have formal competitive events, and are always eager to help a new modeler get started and flying.

The runway measures 100 by 450 feet. We are easy to find by our sign on County Route 49 on the north side of Oneida Lake across from Lord's Field on the east side of the town of Constantia. The field is accessed by a driveway through Webb's farm on the north side of the recreational path used by all terrain vehicles.

We welcome all new members. If you are thinking of getting into radio-controlled model airplane building and flying, then a club is definitely the way to go. We are always looking for new members to help keep the club strong, and we have many members qualified to help you learn the tricky art of flying. It's much more difficult than it looks!

When? Chances are any decent weekday evening or weekend afternoon, someone will be there to help, just ask! However training flights are best on calm days.

Think Summer!
