For new modelers
I.R.C.S membership provides the opportunity to have questions answered by experienced modelers and learn to fly with one-on-one personalized instruction on a dedicated beginners night (Monday) each week. During the winter, I.R.C.S members fly indoors at the Lehman Alternative Community School gym. Visiting the indoor flying activity is a good way to meet club members and learn more about radio controlled flight.

For experienced modelers
Membership also provides expert technical advice in all phases of RC modeling. Experienced modelers also benefit from an I.R.C.S. membership by interacting with the wide array of expertise present in the club’s diverse membership. All members whatever their skill level have unlimited access to one of the finest flying fields available in central NY.
