Check Out the RC Flying Field at AirVenture 2021
July 15, 2021 – AirVenture attendees who are looking to do some RC flying while at the event can do so at EAA’s RC Flying Field located on the south portion of the Pioneer Airport runway. The field, sponsored by Horizon Hobby, is available to AirVenture attendees who bring their own models. The Academy of Aeronautics (AMA) will be on site coordinating the flying and Horizon Hobby will be demonstrating various models each evening.
The field will be open 7-9:30 p.m. on Monday, July 26, through Saturday, July 31. Those who wish to operate a small RC model (5 pounds or less) in this area during AirVenture must be registered AMA members. AMA membership registrations are available at the site.
There will be a limited number of vehicle parking passes available for each evening to make transporting the RC models to the field easier. The parking passes for the current day will be available at the Horizon Hobby exhibit location in Hangar A, or at the AMA exhibit trailer located in the Fun Fly Zone.
A nightly shuttle service will also be available for pick up at EAA’s Blue Barn and then drop off at the RC Flying Field beginning at 6 p.m. each evening and will run continuously throughout the evening.
