Our Charter

Our club is chartered under AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics). Club charter #320 AMA Gold Leader Club. Our club's purpose is to promote model aircraft activities; building, flying, teaching others to fly.

History of Our Club

Our club was started over 30 years ago and has had various flying sites over the years. We have had the current field since 1996 and have been working on improving it a little at a time. By far the biggest improvement was when we put in the paved runway. The club membership includes local flyers plus many winter visitors who enjoy the usually great year-round flying weather.

Our Club is now re-named to: Contreras Field, home of the Yuma Aeromodelers.
 

 

 

Our field has a paved runway 600 X 60. Shaded pits for morning and afternoon flying. Hwy 95 and Rifle Range Road.  Located at N32d 42' 27.59" by W114d 25' 27.59"
