Thanks for Stopping By
The Rutland County RC Flyers welcome you! The club enjoys one of the best flying fields in the Northeast, at the site of the old Fair Haven Municipal Airport in Fair Haven, VT.
The Rutland County RC Flyers is a chartered club with the Academy of Model Aeronautics (Club #3090). Because of our dedication to the hobby, and giving back to our host community, the AMA has designated us as a Gold Level Leader Club. We offer a top-notch flying field, and a very active group of pilots that enjoy all that model aviation has to offer.
Up, up and Awaaaaaaaaaay!
Brant's Jetco "Thermic 20" was lost to the thermal God after recently launching it from the soccer field just below Hathaway farm in Rutland Town.
Third catapult launch only 80%, after two easy trim flights, the plane hooked a thermal, and flew out of sight – it may still be somewhere above Bob Case’s home in Chittenden, or higher! Farewell, sweet pea, hope someone finds you and gives me a jingle!
Join the Fun!
During the warmer months, we typically fly on Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. To fly RC at Fair Haven Municipal Airport, you must be a full club member (or guest), and a member of the Academy of Model Aeronautics. This is per our agreement with the Town of Fair Haven. We offer on-site flight instruction, and can help you get started in one of the most rewarding hobbies you'll ever experience. Click for membership information.
If you want to reach the largest audience with your project updates and RC news, we recommend joining our Facebook Group at Rutland County RC Flyers. If you're not a Facebook user, you can use the club Forum on this website. Either way, we'd like to see what you're up to!
