If you are interested in building or flying fixed wing, radio control (R/C) airplanes or just enjoy great company, then you have come to the right place! The BAMS (Butler Aircraft Modelers Society) is an excellent club to help you get started in this hobby.
If you are already a pilot, you will find The BAMS to be a very diverse group of pilots who are interested in the many different facets of this wonderful hobby. We fly anything from foamies to big balsa planes and everything in between. You will find that with us, there is no more satisfying sense of accomplishment than seeing the creation that you built fly for the first time! All of our members enjoy the hobby and enjoy spending time and sharing their experience and know-how with others that are interested too.
The simple truth of the matter is that you just will not find a friendlier group of fliers anywhere.
If you are new to the sport of radio controlled airplanes, we offer an excellent training program during the warmer months. Because we know how difficult and expensive it can be to try to learn to fly rc airplanes on your own, we do everything we can to teach, support and assist new pilots. We believe that in order to truly enjoy this hobby/sport, you need to learn not only how to fly safely, but to properly build and maintain your aircraft. And you can always count on our members to help out when yo need it.
Please take a few minutes to browse around our website and get to know a little about our club. If you are interested in learning more about radio controlled airplanes, feel free to visit us at the field. We invite you to join our club and enjoy some fun with us along with the benefits of being a member of The BAMS!
Our park-like field is just north of Butler, located between Routes 308 and 38. It features large beautiful grass runways, a covered pavilion with picnic tables, and full restroom facilities. We utilize the field for more than just flying. Our members fly year-round and during the flying season, we conduct monthly business and membership meetings at the field. We also hold monthly picnic's for our members and their families.
