Turbines, Turkeys, and Toys 4 Tots, OH MY fun fly Saturday November 30th!


Bakersfield Airplane Radio Control Society


About Us

We are dedicated to bringing R.C. enthusiasts together here locally and from around the world.  We have the privilege of flying off of a very large runway on the outskirts of Buttonwillow, CA.  Our runway measures 3,260ft long x 50ft wide (994m long x 15m wide)!  This means everything from ultra macro planes to turbine powered jets can be flown here with ease.  We have a great group of guys that help keep the field clean and accessible so we can continue to enjoy flying here.  R.C. aviation runs in our blood and we would love to have you join us for flying and or chatting it up at the field.  This field is accessible only by members or friends/family joining a member at the field.  If you decide to join BARKS you will be given access as well but make sure you check out the fly days, field rules, and AMA rules of flying.  Happy landings everyone!

Authorized Flying Days

In some cases there will be field closures that affect our flying days and times.  Check the site and watch your email for those announcements.  When there is a field closure we are to stay clear of the field until we are cleared to fly again.  Members will be notified via email.
