About Us

IMG_6113IMG_6112This is the official website of the Pine Belt Radio Control Association.  We are a group of local model airplane enthusiasts from Hattiesburg, Mississippi and the surrounding area.  We build and fly radio controlled aircraft of all types and sizes – gas and glo powered planes and helis, as well as electric powered models.  Our flying field is near Purvis, Mississippi and has both paved and grass parallel runways.

The field is a private flying site, financed by members via annual dues and fundraising activities.  We welcome visitors and new members at all times. If the weather is good, someone will usually be flying at the field on Saturday or Sunday afternoons.  Come out and get acquainted with a fantastic hobby.

For those that are new to the hobby, we have club members that can provide free instruction to other members, from basic recommendations on the first plane you should buy, right up through your first solo.  We all learned to fly this way and are eager to pass it on to new folks.
