Academy of Model Aeronautics
The Evergreen Aero Modelers
We are a group of individuals from all walks of life who enjoy building and flying radio-controlled & control-line models.
TEAM is Academy of Model Aeronautics chartered club #4490
TEAM's home is DeAlton Field, adjacent to the Evergreen Aviation Museum, home of the HK-1 Hughes Flying Boat, SR-71 Blackbird, Evergreen B-17, the Oregon Aviation Hall of Honor, numerous wartime and civilian display aircraft, and other fabulous aviation exhibits. DeAlton Field offers one of the finest model aviation facilities. RC flyers enjoy a 500 x 24 foot paved runway, 500 x 20 foot grass runway, paved taxiways, 6 flying stations and a fenced pit area with frequency board and individual pit tables. The RC field has electricity on-site with underground irrigation systems and features safety fencing and attractive landscaping. A beautiful Oak grove provides a shaded picnic area adjacent to the flying site.
The Control-Line area is being relocated at this time. Check back for updates often.
Monthly Team Meeting
Team meetings are the second Thursday of each month at 7pm. in the AeroSpace Building at Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, OR.
Visitors and new members are Welcome !
The club's flying field areas and roads are CLOSED TO ALL VEHICLES until further notice due to extremely wet soil conditions. Pilots can use the normal sign in protocols to fly at the field, but they must park on the paved parking lot and walk to the field. The field is very wet and we have been working on securing the runway fabric from blowing away by burying the edges. We would like to thank everyone ahead of time for their cooperation during this temporary road closure.
DeAlton Field Rules
Membership in AMA is required to fly unassisted at the TEAM field.
Participants in museum sponsored educational programs or students receiving introductory flight experience might be exempted from this requirement.
Registration with the museum is required for all fliers each day they wish to fly. Registration will consist of showing TEAM membership card and current AMA card to the front desk personnel and signing the guest book. You'll receive a hand stamp verifying you've checked in. Any flier who is not a TEAM member must register with the museum and either purchase a museum admission or purchase a field visitor’s pass for $5 to use the model fields for that day only.
Students are defined as anyone learning to fly models. Students may use TEAM facilities without AMA membership only if they’re taking part in museum-organized educational programs, or as guests of TEAM members, provided that:
- During radio-control training non-AMA students must be on buddy box systems; students must have current AMA membership prior to soloing.
- During control-line instruction the student must be actively engaged in training with an instructor. Safety thongs must be properly worn on all flights.
- Instructors must be present at all times non-AMA students are on TEAM fields.
- Instructors must be TEAM members with valid AMA.
