Who We Are
We are a radio control flying club that is located in the beautiful Trabuco Canyon in Orange Country, California. Our members fly a wide variety of planes and helicopters, from gentle electric park flyers to giant scale 3D aircraft and helicopters. We fly from a 465' x 50' Asphalt runway and taxiway that is well maintained by our members. We also have a covered spectator area with picnic tables and ample parking for our fun flys that are held 4 times a year.
Come visit us. All flyers and visitors are welcome. AMA is required to fly at our site. We have instructors available if you are just starting out. All members are happy to lend a hand in any way possible. Come join the fun at The Trabuco Flyers Club!
About Our Founding
The Trabuco Flyers Club was founded in September of 1991, by six individuals with the desire to provide the young and old with the opportunity to enjoy the building & flying of radio controlled model airplanes, plus the camaraderie with others involved in our hobby/sport on a continuing basis. We have a paved runway and taxi-ways, pit areas, large oak trees for shade over our picnic area, a large facilities building, complete with air conditioning, heating and our own water supply from a well. We continue to enhance the site as we go.
To promote the sport of model aviation through organized activities for all ages and to stimulate community awareness of a safe family environment.
"Thank you for visiting our site and inquiring into The Trabuco Flyers. We appreciate your interest in our organization and believe you will find our facilities to be among the finest in Southern California and our members the friendliest!" - Eric Nelson, President
