About Us

Omahawks RC Club
Welcome to the Omahawks® RC Inc. web site, we hope you browse around the site.  If you’re new to the Hobby or a veteran looking for a place to land, please take your time to browse around the Omahawks® web site to see what the Club has to offer.  If you want to learn more about this hobby, the links might be of interest to you.

The Omahawks® is the largest club of radio control Hobbyist’s in and around the local Metropolitan area.  In a partnership with the City Parks and Recreation Department the Omahawks® manages one of the premier flying fields within the country.  Hawk Field is located in the beautiful Standing Bear Lake Recreation Area entrance on 138th and Fort Street in Omaha, Nebraska.

No matter what your interests in Radio Control Flying the Omahawks® offers a wide variety of events. The Omahawks® Event calendar lists the many activities and events club and its membership sponsor. Besides the events to participate in the Omahawks® offers an excellent training program to help you learn to fly.  The training program is free to both club members and guests starting early April running to the ending of September.  Training starts at 06:00 PM ending around dusk. So come out to watch or get involved.  It’s an excellent way to be introduced to a rewarding hobby and gives you the opportunity to meet people with similar interests.  The club is also family oriented and encourages family participation, what a great way to enjoy some good family time. Use the "Contact Us" tab to express an interest in attending training night.

We look forward to seeing at the Field, until then have a safe and enjoyable flying experience.

Make-A-Wish Foundation

We support Make-A-Wish (the flag ship of support), the Boy Scouts, weekly training night and youth training.  We have been recognized by the Make a Wish foundation as a catalyst for other organizations to also support them.  Omahawks members can proudly say we have supported the Make- A-Wish organization for over 41 years and have contributed over $100,000!  Every year (except 2020), we have held a yearly Labor Day Model Air Show so that 100% of the proceeds can be funneled back to the Make-A-Wish foundation. Many members have dedicated long hours in planning and execution of this event over the years and can take pride in helping young children enjoy a special wish come true!
