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.
Field Report 04/17/2019 - The field is in great shape. There is some water at the west end, but the rest of the surface is perfect!
As of February 25th you MUST have your FAA registration number visible on the exterior of your airplane. It doesn't have to be in big block letters - it just has to be visible if someone is inspecting your plane. Having the information on a tag in the battery compartment or elsewhere does not meet this requirement. More information at faadronezone.faa.gov
