LCAA Banner

Welcome to the Loudoun County Aeromodelers Association (LCAA), AMA #799. 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 Nature Preserve 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 through the pilot training program. 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.

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.

2022 July Picnic

The club held two fantastic events this past weekend. The first was a July picnic held on Saturday July 2nd. In a departure from our usual hamburgers and hotdog lunch Patrick Dinh treated us to grilled chicken tacos. The weather was hot and sticky but the flying conditions were great.

The second event was the first night flying event held by the club in many years which took place on the evening of July 3rd. The conditions couldn't have been better and what a turn out! We had almost as many people for this event as the prior days picnic. Lots of pilots and as many spectators. Attach some lights to a plane and join in on the fun. Monitor the Airbag, Slack and this page for the next night flying event.
