New Club Mailbox Installed at the Field!

Our official club address is now 4682 Arden Rd, San Angelo, TX 76901.

Use the address above to send mail to the club! The new mailbox is locked to restrict access to the mail and is weatherproof. Having the mailbox at the field saves us $240 per year in mailbox rental fees. Thanks to Jim Mohling and John “Bubba” Brotherton for installing the mailbox and post at the field! 

Angelo RC is now a FRIA Approved Site!

Thanks to Gary Jones for getting the application approved!

What is FRIA?

A FRIA is a defined geographic area where drones or UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) can be flown without Remote ID equipment. Both the drone and the pilot must be located within the FRIA’s boundaries throughout the operation. In addition, the pilot of the drone must be able to see it at all times throughout the duration of the flight.

Note: If a drone is equipped with Standard Remote ID, it may not be disabled or shut off while flying in a FRIA. 

All aircraft over .55 lbs or 250 grams must have a FAA registration number attached to the frame, even if within the FRIA boundary.

A map of FRIA approved sites can be viewed at this link:
