The San Fernando Valley Radio Control Flyers is Academy of Model Aeronautics Charter Club #152, and is currently enjoying its 64th year.


The Valley Flyers are a group of  model aviation enthusiasts from all over Southern California who enjoy building and flying radio control model aircraft.

The main emphasis' of the club are the promotion of model aviation, to maintain the Apollo XI field both physically and politically for model aviation, and to promote good fellowship and community relations.

The Apollo XI field is located in the Sepulveda Basin, a flood control area along the Los Angeles River in the Los Angeles community of Lake Balboa.  The flying field is available every day from dawn to dusk except during sanctioned field events.

In addition to general sport flying, some members perform in various competitions such as sport and scale aerobatics, scale and giant scale events.  The club also has a large contingent of pylon racing enthusiasts, helicopter, and jet modelers.

On the 4th Tuesday of each month the club holds a general meeting.  At these meetings we have speakers on subjects related to the hobby, show and tell where our members bring out their pride and joy, and of course our club raffle.  And in December we have our Annual Holiday and Awards show!

The meeting location is the Encino Community Center, 4935 Balboa Blvd. Encino, CA.  All meetings start at 7:30 P.M.

Benefits of joining the Valley Flyers include:


  • Free flight instruction. We use our Club trainer airplanes, radios, and fuel. You provide the enthusiasm!

  • Club Meetings including Show-And-Tell, Model-Related Programs & Presentations, and Monthly Raffle.
