Lakehead Aeromodellers

Welcome to Lakehead Aeromodellers

 

Lakehead Aeromodellers are committed to promoting and encouraging the pursuit of model aviation in Thunder Bay and District

All types of aviation related modeling, be it fixed wing airplanes or helicopters are readily accepted by the Lakehead Aeromodellers, at both our indoor and outdoor flying venues.

Lakehead Aeromodellers provides guidance and training to prospective and current members. The cub holds monthly meetings from September to May and hands on flight training at the field every Tuesday and Thursday from May to September. During the winter months, indoor, rubber and electric powered aircraft are flown Monday nights at Bishop Gallagher School, with regularly scheduled dates at the Sports Dome. New members are encouraged to come to a meeting, training night to a club event to fund out more information. Happy Flying!
