The Valley Forge Signal Seekers Radio Controlled Model Airplane Club is one of the largest and oldest clubs of its kind in the United States. Founded in 1959, we now have over 200 members. Our club is chartered and insured by the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), and has a training program where qualified club instructors help novices learn to fly radio-controlled models in a safe and proficient manner. You can find R/C pilots here any day of the year it's not raining, too windy, or too cold.
Our flying site is located in Valley Forge National Historical Park, 18 miles northwest of Philadelphia in southeastern Pennsylvania. The elevation is 260 ft. above sea level. The GPS coordinates are latitude: 40.082959, longitude: -75.448654. Valley Forge is the encampment where George Washington and 12,000 poorly-fed, ill-equipped, and weary Continental Army troops spent the cold winter of 1777-78 after the British occupied Philadelphia.
