Las Vegas Soaring Club

If it can fly, you might just see it at our field!

Home

 

Welcome...

Don't be fooled by the name...we are a dedicated club whose members fly everything from winch gliders, helicopters and wing racers to high tech FPV aircraft. Our club participates in community events, promotes the hobby of RC flying and safety, and encourages youth participation through the Bob Pickens Junior Pilot Program.

 
  • Our field is an AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) certified field, AMA #3308, and all members are required to have a current AMA card in their possession and display a club card when at the field.
  • The LVSC is an AMA Gold Leader Club.
  • The LVSC members pilot everything from gliders to helicopters to "drones."
  • The LVSC has the only electric winch for launching gliders in Las Vegas.
  • The carpeted runway is 250 by 35 feet and not only has good clearance, but fantastic views of the nearby Red Rock Recreation Area.
  • Club membership is through an approval process only. Please see the FAQ page for more information.
  • At this time only electric powered aircraft are allowed to operate at the field.

FAA News:

Recent regulations require that ALL aircraft display the FAA registration number on the outside of the aircraft. However, they do not specify how big nor the location and placement of the number. LVSC is not responsible for policing this, however we advise you to meet the requirements of the law as other agencies may be charged with enforcement other than the FAA.
