2019 Fun Fly Information
Each year the Rutland County RC Flyers host a celebration of model aviation at our Fun Fly! This year's event will be held on Friday, July 12th through Sunday, July 14th. If you'd like to camp with us, we offer a no-hookup camping experience, and we assure you, you'll be in good company! Campers are welcome to arrive anytime starting Wednesday, July 10th, with departure no later than 4pm Sunday, July 14th. We typically attract pilots and families from neighboring New England states, as well as New York, and even Canada.
Saturday, July 13th we invite spectators to enjoy the excitement, flying, and great food that our Fun Fly is known for. There's free admission for the entire family, and we'll have burgers, dogs, and drinks available from 11am-4pm that day. Of course, our noontime Air Show is worth the trip in itself, as you'll see all kinds of aircraft from simple foamies, to warbirds and helicopters, and even turbine-powered jets. Be sure to bring something to sit on, and get ready to enjoy almost nonstop action throughout the day.
Fun Fly Trivia: Google has reported to us that our Fun Fly photo, above, has hit over 105,000 views (and counting) since it was first posted in 2016. Wow, there are a lot of you out there!!
Pilot's Dinner Friday
Chef Bob Moshimer has already garnered quite the reputation for cooking good food (and lots of it!) for the masses, and we all hope you'll join us for our Pilot's Dinner, held Friday evening, July 12th (be sure to sign up when you register).
We guarantee you won't leave the table hungry, and it's a great opportunity to meet and greet with pilots and share experiences about this wonderful hobby of ours.
Noontime Air Show Saturday
This is a crowd favorite: Saturday, July 13th we feature an action-packed air show with foamies trying to knock each other out of the sky, high-speed warbirds, helicopters and drones, aerobatic stunt planes, and even turbine-powered jets.
Following the air show, we open the pit area to our spectators, who can meet our pilots and vote for their favorite aircraft, crowning one of our pilots and aircraft "Best in Show!"
