Barnstormers Radio-controlled Flying Club was founded in 1984 by a group of gentlemen interested in flying radio-controlled model aircraft in quiet rural setting. Today the club has over 100 members, mostly from the Southwest Portland, Oregon area.
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. We have our own training aircraft and transmitters — but do use the contact form below to let us know that you’re coming, 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 considering joining our club, please check here for more information on how to do that. If you would like to attend a club meeting look at our calendar and show up and introduce yourself.
If you would like to fly at our field and not a 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.
We welcome as club members pilots of all skill levels from novice to advanced, so don’t feel we’re only focused 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 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)..
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.
