About Us

The Plane Crazy R/C'ers Club (PCRC) is one of the most successful AMA R/C clubs in the northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Founded over 20 years ago in 1987, the club has an active and dynamic membership that flies all kinds of R/C aircraft and some helicopters. From the new ARF "Park Flyers", to a ever-growing variety of small and large electric-powered aircraft, to virtually every type of small to very large piston-powered aircraft – including trainers, sport, scale, aerobatic, and ¼ scale aircraft – the club's members are a friendly group that always welcome new members and visitors from other clubs.

PCRC is Chartered Club #2681 with the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), and is active in the community with participation at such events as a static-aircraft display at the annual EAA Fly-in at Winchester Airport and a flying demonstration each October at the Long Branch Hot Air Balloon Festival.

PCRC Club membership is only $48.00 annually, and all members are required to also be a member in good standing with the AMA. Membership in the PCRC club entitles a new member to full use of the private club flying field, participation in club sponsored events, and receive free instruction (if needed) by a PCRC Certified Instructor. The PCRC club holds regular membership meetings on the 3rd Monday of each month, and an annual membership Banquet in January each year. See the "Membership" page for information on joining the club.

Access to the club's primary flying site is just east of Winchester on Sulphur Springs Road, a quarter mile from the intersection with Rt. 50. The site has been used by the club since 1991. The site has two close-cropped grass runways, with a fenced pit area and a shelter. Visitors are always welcome to come by the club site when the gate is open and meet and talk to members and learn about our club. See the "Locations" page for more information on our flying field and other information.
