Club Info & Contacts


The Indian River Kontrol Society (IRKS) is an organization dedicated to the enjoyment, promotion and education of model aviation in Brevard County, Florida. The IRKS was chartered (#208) by the Academy of Model Aeronautics(AMA) on September 1, 1967, incorporated in July of 1977 and became an AMA Gold Leader Club in 1990.

Serving Florida's Space Coast, the IRKS has grown with the community from a small informal group of 16 to an organization of nearly 200 members, making it one of the largest model clubs in Florida. Many of our members, both past and present, are world renown for their building and flying skills.

While radio control model airplanes are the dominant activity within the club, many other facets of aero-modeling, such as Free Flight and Control line flying, are pursued by the membership. With such a diverse interest base,the IRKS continues to host a variety of national, regional, state and local contests. The most significant and prestigious has been the annual National Miniature Pylon Racing Association's Formula One National Championship in 1977 and 1993.
