Space City R/C was started in the early 1960’s by Charley Winn, a local owner of a hobby shop in Spring Branch. He now lives in Tomball. Members met in their homes and flew from various sites around Spring Branch and Katy. Some locations were on Hwy. 6 between 290 and I10. They also flew from Cardiff Field in Katy. Charley left the hobby in order to fly full size airplanes. Members began looking
to have a safe and secure site to accommodate typically sport type
flyers, looking for an appropriate place for camaraderie and enjoyment
of the hobby of R/C airplanes. Basically, many of these initial members
have passed on, but the project and their commitment continues on
with our current club. The field is now located on 12 acres adjacent to Katy/Hockley
Road and SH529, the club has grown from a few individuals leasing
a small parcel of land to a club of 88 members, with a subchapter
S corporation made up of landowners, who contributed financially
to permanently acquire the land and make permanent improvements.
we are a club sanctioned by the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA),
all members are required to be member of the AMA as well, in order
to provide the required insurance from that institution. A prospective
club member can fly at the club 3 times at no charge, but will then
be asked to join the club as a member to continue. The club is a
group of extremely congenial guys, always ready to give assistance
or advice as required. Having been a member of the club since 1977, it has been a pleasure
to be associated with these individuals and the club overall. The
facility is first class bar none, and the membership reflects the
finest qualities of our hobby. We are always anxious to bring on
additional members, both senior and junior, in order to bring about
the continuation and enjoyment for all that this club has rendered.
