Welcome to Bomber Field USA!
Nestled in Monaville, Texas, just 30 minutes out of the Houston Metropolitan area, sits one of the finest R/C aviation venues on the planet. You should drop what you are doing and come fly with us, you won't regret it!
If you think you might be interested in joining our organization please feel free to contact one of the club officers or feel free to come to Bomber Field any weekend and visit with us in person. Our club usually meets the first Sunday of every month, please check the calendar below for exact date and time.
This facility is the dream-come-true of the late Mr. B. B. Weber, the owner and designer of the original facility layout. The organization is a nationally recognized club, mainly because of the annual B-17 Gathering and Scale Big Bird Fly-In. This event attracts modelers from all over the North American continent and Europe. Members of Bomber Field take pride each year in the planning, promotion, and performance of this and other equally important events. The events held at Bomber Field not only generate funds to maintain the property, but provide an opportunity for fellowship and information exchange within the modeling community.
