The Steuben Red Barons is a group of remote control aircraft enthusiasts and is chartered by the Academy of Model Aeronautics, Club Number 4854. The club encourages newcomers and provides an opportunity for pilots of all abilities to enjoy a fun day of flying or watching others fly. Although our flying field is no longer located in the Steuben Valley, it is easily accessible and provides a great site for model aviation. All our members must belong to AMA for safety and insurance reasons. Guests are welcomed with a club sponsor.
The mowing schedule is filled until September. Check the Members' Schedules Tab above for a list of available dates from September on. EMail info@OurRCClub.org with the date(s) you want, or give Bob a call at 315-896-2545.
