Free Flight Training
FREE FLIGHT TRAINING RESUMES 2021
(Generally March - October)
The club maintains an instruction program whereby those new to the hobby can learn to fly. This instruction is provided FREE. A list of club instructors is posted in our monthly newsletter "The Transmitter".
We have a 600'x40' asphalt runway, four separate helicopter pads, a pit area with tables and chairs, toilet facilities, plenty of parking, and an RV parking area (no facilities).
Johnson Field is located on about 70 acres on the Northeast corner of the intersection of I-15 and State Highway 76. We are about 16 miles North of Escondido on I-15. From I-15, take Highway 76 East towards Pala less than 1/2 mile and turn North on Pankey Rd. Enter the Palomar Flying site through the green gate. On weekdays, members must have a key to unlock the gate. The gate is open on weekends and holidays from about 8am to 1pm or when events are scheduled. The public is welcome to come and visit us during those hours. If you are interested in joining, come out anytime – mornings are the most active period. We have separate flying sites on the property devoted to RC airplanes and RC helicopters.
Club Meeting Location:
111 Richmar Ave. in San Marcos

Our Newsletters are graciously crafted by none other than our own Mr. Joe 'Buko' with talent beyond our wildest hopes. He has spent countless hours crafting our Club's Newsletters, adding many of his outstanding photos, quips, humor, stories and exceptional homegrown wit... In short we have the best!
See our current Newsletters or travel back in time with us to 2005. If you have copies that we do not have please share them with us and we'll place them online.
Come in and enjoy the humor, the stories, the outstanding photos and take a trip back in time with us!
Thanks to all of you for observing social distance and wearing masks at the field. Remember that when approaching another member within six feet you must BOTH don your masks. It does little good if only one of you are wearing a mask during the “close encounters”. If you observe other members not wearing masks, let them know that you expect them to wear them to protect YOU!
See you at the field.
Discount Hobby is still open for ordering and drive up pickups!
We are looking for a new Field
Do you own a parcel of land 25 acres or more that is troubled by unauthorized use?
We are Palomar RC Flyers (established 1955). Our model aircraft club, working with you on your land, helps discourage vagrants, camps, drug labs, and what would be otherwise uncontrolled behavior, increased liability, and high insurance cost on your property. In return for a place to practice our peaceful, safe hobby, we grant you peace of mind.
