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.
Although all club members share a common love of flying, we have very diverse interests. As such, you're likely to see a mix of electric and gas-powered models, from park flyers to large-scale warbirds and civilian aircraft. There are trainers, scale aircraft, gliders, helicopters, and even jets. If you've always wanted to learn to fly, come join us!
The Rutland County RC Flyers is a chartered club with the Academy of Model Aeronautics (Club #3090). Because of our dedication to the hobby, the AMA 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.
FAA Registration Number Update
The rules have changed for marking your RC plane, heli, or drone...your FAA registration number must now be displayed on the outside of your aircraft, not hidden in a battery compartment or other enclosure. Click for full details. To read more from the AMA on this topic, see our club Forum.
April Breakfast and Spring Meeting
Our annual spring club meeting is slated for Sunday, April 14th, at the National Guard Building, adjacent to our flying field starting at 10am. In addition to reviewing last fall's meeting minutes & club finances, we'll be discussing field repair, our upcoming Fun Fly, and reviewing the AMA Safety Code and RCRCF Field Rules. Prior to the meeting, we'll be enjoying breakfast at the Fair Haven American Legion Post 49, South Main St, in Fair Haven (breakfast at 830am). Of course, after the meeting and weather-permitting, we'll hopefully be at the field to enjoy some early season flying!
