Default Suburban RC Barnstormers in Bensenville/Wayne, Illinois

The Suburban RC Barnstormers is a Radio Control club for fuelers and electric model aircraft. Our main flying field is at the DuPage Forest Preserve’s Pratt's Wayne Woods in Wayne, Illinois, west of the intersection of Illinois Route 59 and Stearns Road. The actual field is on the South side of Stearns Road, across from the Illinois State Park. Also, from April through October some of us “slope fly” on weekends at the Green Valley Overlook, just south of 75th St on Green Valley Road. And, from November through April we also fly indoors at the White Pines Golf Dome in Bensenville on Friday and Saturday nights from 11:00PM to 01:00AM. Our club meetings are held at 7:00PM on the second Monday of every month at the Bloomingdale Library, off Bloomingdale Road, in, well, Bloomingdale, Illinois. Please come and visit at any time or see our newsletters and club info at SuburbanRCBarnstormers.com. This is a great club, with great people who just love to fly and have fun doing it. We hold two major events every year: one great Swap Meet on Easter Saturday, and a Christmas WISH TREE party at our December Membership meeting. Plus we run a half-dozen "Fun-Flys" every summer. Student pilots are always welcome; just step up and let a club officer, indoor Dome Staffer, or member know you want to learn to fly and, together we'll get 'ya going. See you at the fields!

Default The Barnstormers are moving to a new field in 2015!

The Barnstormers will be leaving their field east of Powis Road in the Spring of 2015, and moving just west of the intersection of Powis Road and Stearns Road. The brand new field, with a paved runway, is just across from Pate Phillips State Park.
