Vista View RC is a 501c(3) which provides remote control education
and maintains Radio Remote Control areas in Vista View Park for
Enthusiasts of all ages. The park is located in Vista View Park in
Davie, FL NW of Miami (click here for directions). Here you can fly on the huge field at the top of the hill, or
fly off the side and actually look down at your cruising plane.
When the winds are from the South, experience great slope flying!
At the bottom North East side of the park in the corner is a lake
that provides an excellent area for RC Sail boats and speed boats
with an area for float flying too.
We are an official chartered club with the Academy of Model
Aeronautics (AMA). The AMA exists to continue the important
ongoing development of aeromodelling through education, promotion
and community-based programming. Vista View RC is recognized and
supported by the AMA. The AMA is devoted to inspiring the young
and young-at-heart to pursue a hobby that will inspire creativity
and advance learning through the use of hands-on applications. The
AMA has many educational programs and services. You must have a
membership with Vista View RC and your AMA Card to fly at this
park. Officers and Park officials will not allow you to fly, drive
or boat without your Vista View RC card! Permission to fly was
granted by Broward County Parks on May 2006.
Thank you for your support at this great RC field!!

At Vista View RC safety is our number 1 priority.
If you are new to the hobby we encourage you to talk to any
member to familiarize yourself with the challenges and the
rewards involved. If you decide to take up the hobby you will
find several existing members who are willing to help new
members with their equipment and the training necessary to
achieve the confidence you will need to solo your airplane.
We also encourage you to purchase an R/C flight simulator, there
are several available on the market today and crashing a
"virtual" airplane is much less expensive than crashing a real
airplane. If you are new to R/C we ask that you don't fly alone
at Vista View Park until your skills reach a level were safety
is not compromised. Please feel free to visit the field, talk to
the officers and members and you will find many helpful people
that will gladly help you with this wonderful hobby.

- $40 for a 1 year membership
- $80 for a 2 year membership
$20 if your AMA membership will expire in 4 months or less

the end of the term that you pay for.
