Model Aircrafts

SAC provides the opportunity to utilize the airport facilities for model aircraft flying, which is a small sized unmanned aircraft or, in the case of a Scale model, a replica of an existing or imaginary aircraft.

Model aircraft are flown within line of sight and operated under GACAR 101 Subpart E

Flying models range from simple toy gliders made of card stock or foam polystyrene to powered scale models made from materials such as balsa wood, bamboo, plastic, styrofoam, carbon fiber, or fiberglass and are skinned with tissue paper or Mylar covering. Some can be very large, especially when used to research the flight properties of a proposed full-scale design.
