Founded in 1956, the Lancaster County Radio Control Club (LCRCC) is an organization dedicated to the preservation and advancement of model aviation as a hobby. This includes constructing flying models, flying these models and teaching all who inquire the skills necessary to be successful at this very interesting hobby/ sport. LCRCC is an association comprised of people from all walks of life. From doctors and computer programmers to mechanics who work on the car you drive, the club is truly an eclectic group. In the past, we have had teaching sessions with everyone from handicapped folks to Boy Scout troops. We participate in outside activities such as Lancaster Airport’s “Community Days”, where we do some demonstration flying for the crowds. We also sponsor events throughout the year ranging from monthly picnics to “friendly” competitive contests.
We are proud of our community involvement and would encourage those interested to view some of our photos featuring these events.
Many of our members who started young have gone on to college to study engineering and other technical fields. Over the long and interesting history the Lancaster County Radio Control Club has had, we have grown deep roots in the community and anticipate continuing to do so in the future.
Our club field is located in beautiful Leola, PA on what is commonly referred to by the locals as "The Goat Path". Club membership is open to anyone interested in Radio Control Flying. Junior members (under 18) must be accompanied by an adult.
If you are interested in joining please download an application, fill it out and bring it to a club meeting (see Calendar). Club members must also apply for and maintain a current membership with the AMA - Academy of Model Aeronautics.
Guests are always welcome. Please feel free to stop out and see us fly! Weekends with good weather and little or no wind are best!
