We Bring Back The Friendly To THE RC Skies
Welcome to the Portland Barnstormers Radio-Controlled Flying Club
We Fly For Fun — Come and join us
We are a family-oriented RC flying club and we are dedicated to sharing the fun by helping new members learn to fly RC model aircraft (and if you’re new to the hobby and sport, then check out this great educational web site). For our club members we have free on-site flight instruction starting at noon just about every Saturday, and for the months of July to September at 6:00 pm on Tuesday. Both days are subject to the weather cooperating (like you, our instructors don’t like being cold and wet — and days when the wind is much higher than 6 MPH are not very good for training). We have our own training aircraft and transmitters so there’s nothing you need bring apart from yourself — but do use the contact form below to let us know that you’re coming, please!
FIND US ON GOOGLE MAPS
(Pretty technical, use Butteville, Oregon as the location.)
Note: Winds shown are 30 feet above ground, not surface.
Not a club member? Perhaps you’ve been given or inherited some RC aircraft? We’d be happy to have you join our club and then we can help train you and get your aircraft flying!
Many of our members are experienced RC pilots with decades of experience and they are happy to share their experiences with our visitors and less-experienced pilots. We’re also a social club, so some of our members don’t fly that much, but they love just spending time out in Oregon farm country having lunch with friends and watching other members practicing their flying skills.
We’re less than a mile from the historic Butteville General Store, Oregon’s oldest operating retail store — they make great sandwiches, superb home-made pies, and have sinfully good ice cream. You can call in your phone orders at 503.678.1605. So bring your lunch and come on over to visit us.
ALREADY KNOW HOW TO FLY?
We welcome as club members pilots of all skill levels from novice to advanced, so don’t feel we’re only focussed on teaching new pilots. Nothing could be further from the truth. We’d love to have you join our club and come fly with us! But do check our our Field Guidelines please. We have some restrictions on the kinds of aircraft we can fly (we want to respect the folks who live near the airfield).
We’d Love to Hear From You…
SCROLL DOWN TO GET TO OUR CONTACT FORM PLEASE!
If you’re new to the hobby and sport of RC aircraft flying and you’d like to get started, or if you have any other questions, please drop us an email using the form on the right. One of our club members will get back to you as soon as they can. (The fields with an * are required.)
IF YOU ARE NOT A CLUB MEMBER: Please note that we do require you either to be a guest of a club member who is at the field with you (limit of three times), or to have joined our club before you can fly at our field or receive training.
