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.

We are looking for a volunteer to join the club Board of Directors. We officially meet once a month - now over Zoom. It is a great way to learn about the club and the Banshee Reek preserve. If you have any interest and have questions, please reach out to any of the current Board memebers listed on the members page of the club website. Thanks!
If you registered with the FAA when it first became a requirement, your registration is expiring this December. Please renew your registration on the FAA Drone Zone page. Remember, you must be able to show prrof of FAA registration if asked while flying at the LCAA field and your FAA number must be marked on all aircraft weighing over 0.55 lbs.
The flying field will be closed on the following dates for deer hunting.
The club held it's first picnic in this new Covid world we live in on July 4th. It was a bit hot and sticky but otherwise a great day for flying. It was great to see a few faces that haven't been at the field in quite some time. Thank you, Jim Salmon, for cooking the burgers and dogs and Elizabeth Crystal for helping serve up the buns and condiments. Stay tuned for an announcement for our next picnic. Hope to see you there.
