Welcome to the internet home of the Rutland County RC Flyers. The Rutland County RC Flyers are dedicated model aviation enthusiasts that fly during the warmer months at the site of the former Fair Haven Municipal Airport, in Fair Haven, VT. The club has been an officially chartered club with the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) since 1991. We are part of AMA's District-1, which includes all AMA clubs in New England.
We welcome visitors to our field anytime we're flying, typically Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays during the warmer months.
You can stay tuned for our latest activities right here, or visit us on our Facebook Group. You don't have to have a FB account to view posts on the club's Facebook Group, so it's open to all.
October Club Meeting
Mark your calendars for our next club meeting, which will be held at 10am on Sunday, October 15 at either our airfield, or the National Guard Building, depending on the weather. On the docket will be 2024 club officer elections. If you'd like to serve the club as an officer, it's not too late to start campaigning!

Flying this Weekend
If you think it takes a lot of guys to get Steve's bright yellow Adrenaline 2.5 going, you should see this group try to change a lightbulb, LOL! It was an awesome flying day, with some hazy sun (until afternoon), light winds, and pleasant temps.
Brian brought his beautiful Cessna T-50 to the field and she flew beautifully, until she didn't. We're uncertain what exactly happened, but it appeared that all of a sudden there was a total loss of control. If anyone can get to the root cause of this, it's Brian.
Another beautiful day is in store for Sunday, so if your schedule allows, by all means bring your favorite aircraft along and enjoy superb flying conditions. Oh, and less we forget, that all important 'hangar talk' from the sidelines!
