Welcome to the Loudoun County Aeromodelers Association (LCAA). Our goal is to promote model aircraft building and flying for the purpose of education, pleasure and recreation. The public is invited to club meetings held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm at the North County Governmental Center in Reston, Virginia. Meeting activities include show 'n tell of members' aircraft and discussions on club events, activities, and business. Gather with us on Facebook and YouTube.

We invite you to join us at our flying field at Banshee Reeks Park in Loudoun County. Non-club members are encouraged to try their hand at flying as a guest of a club member with assistance from a qualified pilot. As a member of the club, flight instructors are available to assist new pilots. All club members must be members of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). You must be a guest of a LCAA member or a LCAA member yourself to fly at the field. Only club qualified pilots may fly at the field by themselves. Membership applications for LCAA and AMA are available on this site.

Field hours: the LCAA flying field is open 7 days a week from 9 am to one half hour before sunset. Occasionally, the field is closed all day or for a limited amount of hours for special occasions and members are given prior notice.

Club Announcements

November Club Meeting Cancelled

The November club meeting scheduled for November 14th is cancelled because the Reston Government center will be in use to count absentee ballots.

We will have our next meeting in December and be electing club members interested in being on our Board of Directors. I would ask anyone interested in getting more involved in the club and getting to know more about our club to consider volunteering. As a board member we only meet once a month, usually at a place that serves beer and if we don't lose track of the time the meetings only last about an hour and a half.

We will also be discussing 2018 club activities at the club meeting too.

Hope to see you there.

Photos and Videos Needed

Take a quick look at our photos page and you will notice that something is missing. We have no photos from the 2015 or 2016 flying season.

If you can identify the event and year it would be much appreciated.
