At TCRC we welcome RC pilots of all experience levels. We enjoy sharing our enthusiasm for flying with others, as well as assisting them in getting started in the hobby. If you want to learn how to fly RC Airplanes, Helicopters, or drones we can help.


We organize yearly Fun Fly’s, BBQs, and monthly club meetings where members may participate in educational demonstrations on a range of topics related to RC flying.

If you’re looking for a local RC flying club that is friendly and welcoming, look no further than the Tinley Creek RC Flying Club!

Our RC Flying Field

The Tinley Creek RC flying field, located in Matteson, IL  is kept in great shape, and we have separate areas for helicopters, planes, drones, and control line flying. The aircraft runway is 300′ long by 20′  wide, with numerous pilot stations and plane stands in the pits. Nature calls? There are two porta-potties on site.



Our club is dedicated to giving back to the club and community. We have low fees, only $35 a year required. You get free food at all events. All club money is reinvested in the club’s growth. Always.
