Steuben Red Barons RC Club

 

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.

Hopefully we will be able to start flying again soon! It is extremely important that if an airplane crashes, members retrieve all possible remains. If one is lost, members at the field should make every attempt to find it. This is just a reminder because I know we all are extremely diligent in cleaning up crash sites. If you have the misfortune to lose an airplane, please let Dan or Bob know right away so we can alert the farmer to the possibility of a lost plane.

Starting on 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
