History of the 495th R/C Squadron, Inc.

The 495th R/C Squadron, Inc. is a non-profit club chartered by the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) for the promotion of radio controlled (R/C) model aircraft. The club is based in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, and is comprised of approximately 160 members, coming from all walks of life, and is devoted to the design, construction and flying of R/C model airplanes and helicopters. Founded in 1972, the Club's name is derived from the first flying site used by the new club; the roadbed of the not-yet-completed Interstate 495 in Chelmsford, Massachusetts. Today, the Club maintains two R/C model flying fields, located  in Groton, and Tewksbury, Massachusetts, and offers free training to anyone that would like to learn to fly R/C model aircraft. Membership in the 495th R/C Squadron, Inc. is open to all current AMA members. The Club holds monthly meetings, as well as fun-fly events, barbeques and picnics.
