Welcome to the Official website of the Rock Valley R/C Flyers Club in Rockford, IL

We are an AMA Gold Leader Club!  Please look around and join us at our monthly club meetings or out at our field, both of which are always open to the public and prospective members!  Spectators are  always free(Well, sometimes at a special event we may ask for a donation for a local charity, and donations to our club are always welcome!!)

OK.  My mistake.  Someone made off with a green P47 (not C47 as I had previously posted) from the Evo Of Flight belonging to Orv Steinmetz, leaving behind a silver P47.  Orv would like anyone who has this plane to bring it to the next meeting, and no questioned asked.

See the Membership page for the 2018 fee structure for the Park District and new links for the forms.

In-District is $40.00 and Out-Of-District is $45.00.

Any of the blue words on the pages are links to either the website page referenced or other websites.
