A group of individuals interested in all aspects of the radio control aircraft hobby. Our club, first sanctioned by the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) in 1989 has steadily grown and developed over the years. Everyone in the club has a singular vision - to have fun. That is our mission. To enjoy a day of flying with a great group of individuals with a common interest.
Many of our Members have decades of experience building and flying RC Model Aircraft. All of whom are willing to share their knowledge with others so that they too can experience a safe and enjoyable day at the flying field.
We host numerous events at our flying field throughout the year, such as our Annual Warbirds day, Dawn Patrol Fly-In and our Annual Electric Fun Fly to name a few. Additionally, our Club will host a number of BBQ's at our flying field free to all Members, just another way we like to say thanks to all of our club members.
Club meetings are held the last Tuesday of every month, where we gather to discuss Club business, display new aircraft and equipment. Become a member and join us at our Annual Holiday Party. As you can see, we are truly an active Club.
So, if you're looking for a Club that is willing to take the time to help you develop the skills and confidence in making your introduction to the RC Modeling sport a rewarding one, look no further. Why not attend our next monthly meeting and introduce yourself. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Come see what the Somerset RC Club has to offer.

Flying At The Field
In order to fly solo at the field (without assistance) you must first perform the required solo flight test which can only be administered by a County Certified Check Pilot. Solo flight test requirements are available on this page.
After you have completed this requirement, the Check Pilot will affix a Solo Pilot sticker to your Park Field Permit. Until you fulfill this requirement, you must fly with the assistance of a certified flyer. This is for your safety and the safety of others.
Flight regulations are posted on this site and at the field. Please abide by them.
