Academy of Model Aeronautics
Chartered Club #3504

The Newport News Park Radio Control Club (NNPRCC) was founded on January 3, 1994 and currently has 100+ active members that love building, flying and talking about radio-controlled aircraft.  The NNPRCC flying field is open to members from sunrise to sunset year-round and offers the following amenities:

  • Paved 400' runway
  • Spacious 30 acre overfly area
  • Bleachers for visitors & spectators
  • Two shelters with picnic tables and on-site restroom
  • Complimentary DC power supply for operating chargers & electronics

Visitors and guests are encouraged to stop by the NNPRCC flying field and meet existing club members.  The busiest flying times are usually Saturday and Sunday afternoons (weather permitting).  If you're looking for a great place to fly your airplane, helicopter, multi-rotor (and more) or interact with other model aviation enthusiasts, join NNPRCC today!


NOTE: Due to the flying field's proximity to Newport News / Williamsburg International Airport, operating radio-controlled aircraft above 400' is strictly prohibited.
