The Rogue Valley Flyers RC flying club was founded in 1976 and has been serving Josephine County hobbyists since. Our field is leased from the county and is located in Kerby, OR -- about 25 miles southwest of Grants Pass. We welcome all RC enthusiasts. To fly at our facility membership in both the RVF club and the Academy of Model Aeronautics is required.
Summer Air Academy - 2017
July 17, 2017 - Grants Pass Airport
Most students enjoy those days that follow the end of school. No homework, kick back, sleep late, yawn. Not for a group of twenty-four students who arrived before 9:00am this morning. These students representing eight area Middle Schools and Grants Pass High School had registered for the 2nd Summer Air Academy sponsored by the airport. This year's enrollment was about double that of last year and included seven young women, a big increase over last year. With combined efforts of Rogue Valley Flyers, the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), Pac-Jet Aviation, Pacific Aviation and Dutch Brothers coffee the young people embarked on a full week of education into the many fields of aviation. We've accumulated a cross section of photos from the week and will present them as they become available.
