Welcome to SPARKS RC Club

SPARKS (South Pinellas Aeronautical Radio Kontrol Society, Inc.) is a club chartered by the AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics), the world's largest sport aviation organization, and Pinellas County's largest radio-controlled flying club. AMA chartered (Charter #1070) since the early eighties, and recognized in 2006 as a Gold Leaders Club, SPARKS is a non profit organization which provides a wide range of activities and facilities for the membership.


Since inception, the Club has grown from a handful of radio-control enthusiasts to over 150 members at the present time. Members range in age from 12 years to over 80 years, demonstrating all levels of flying skills. For interested newcomers and novice pilots who want to get their wings, the Club has several instructors available, at no cost, during the week and on weekends.

Visitors are always welcome to join in the fun at the field and to navigate through our website.

Individuals interested in flying model aircraft are encouraged to visit and join our flying community located at 10550 Daisy St N., St. Petersburg. FL 33716.  From Roosevelt Blvd, turn South onto 16th Street N and turn right at the Fire Station.  Our gate is behind the Station.
