MRRCS - Pfeiffer Field

Pfeiffer Field - Mount Rainier Radio Control Society's club-owned field in Roy, Washington.

Located on 85 acres in the shadow of Mount Rainier, our field was named in honor of Bob Pfeiffer. Bob, along with other founding members of MRRCS, was instrumental in acquiring the beautiful site we enjoy today.

In addition to our 300-foot asphalt & grass runways, you will find trees, fresh air, and plenty of wildlife in our peaceful, private corner of the great Pacific Northwest.  

 For our MRRCS members, we are happy to announce that in Sept 2023, Pfeiffer Field has it's Official FRIA (FAA Recognized Identification Area) designation approved by the AMA . No Remote ID required to fly at our field. 

  • FRIA Site. As of Sept 2023, *NO REMOTE ID REQUIRED* at our field.  If you fly at Pfeiffer Field (MRRCS), you will NOT need to go out and buy a broadcast module for your "UAS" (Unmanned Aircraft System i.e. airplane, heli, drone, random remote controlled flying thing) to be compliant.
