The Mon Valley R/C Club offers flying opportunities for novice and experienced pilots. We conduct small group instructor-led classes for individuals who have an interest in learning how to fly aircraft with an emphasis on "how to fly safely". Safety is our number one priority. The Academy of Model Aeronautics offers FREE membership for junior flyers up to age 18. Our goal is to "Set You Up For Success" beginning with your very first flight. We pair new flyers with a seasoned flyer using a buddy box . This is a hobby anyone could enjoy for a lifetime. There is no age limit to this hobby. All we ask is for you to have an interest in the hobby and that you want to have fun flying.
The MVRC airfield is located in Cedar Creek Park near the intersections of RT 51 and Interstate 70. For more details about the classes and to learn more about club membership, please visit the monvalleyrc.com website or contact Dr. Linda Wojnar, Club Secretary - 412-654-7867
