Please feel free to look at our website and explore our commitment to radio-control model aircraft flying. Our organization is dedicated to promoting alltypes of model aircraft from Trainers, Float Flying, Giant Scale, Helicopters, and other types of flying models as well. Highly competent instructors are available for beginners. Many experienced modelers are always willing to offer their "profound knowledge" to any flyers looking to expanding their horizons. We welcome anyone of any age and experience (or lack thereof) to come visit us and share experiences with this fabulous hobby. If you are interested in joining our club, feel free to download:

The club meets at 7pm on the second Monday of each month. In the winter months we meet at the Mountainview Christian Church (some members even come a little earlier to fly their indoor planes inside the auditorium before the meeting). During the summer months (roughly May-October) we meet at the Orient Flying Field . We offer free RC training and orientation every Tuesday night during the summer months at the field. All members and visitors are welcome! Our club flies at our dedicated RC field located on Orient Drive near Sandy,Oregon (Click to see a map to our field).
