About Us

The 6th Division Flyers Inc. operating as THE ORILLIA AERO MODELERS is a non profit organization devoted to the promotion of R/C flying in the Orillia area.  We are a Radio Control Model Aircraft Club made up of model flyers from Orillia and the surrounding area. We have a small membership of approximately 40 people and we welcome new members.

We fly at the Severn Pines Flying Field, 2734 Cambrian Rd. at Nichols Line, we have a 400 feet by 100 feet runway with a large pit area, and a second crosswind runway measuring 125 feet by 580 feet.

Our club is affiliated with the Model Aeronautics Association of Canada (MAAC), the governing body of Model Aviation in Canada. As a member of MAAC, our club’s flying site is sanctioned by MAAC, and all flying activities there are covered by MAAC’s insurance carrier, for public liability damages arising out of the operation of model aircraft.

Instruction nights for new members is on Wednesday around 6:00 pm until dark, weather permitting.

Club Fees are $80.00 per year for Adults and $10.00 per year for junior members under 18.

MAAC membership is required. Current MAAC fees are $90.40 per year for Seniors and $23.73 per year for junior members under 18

The goal of the 6th Division flyers Inc. is to promote all aspects of R/C flight.  We welcome anyone interested in coming out to visit our club, whether you are an experienced flyer, a student flyer, or just new to the hobby and want to see what it is all about.
