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.
One of the most popular full-scale kits of all time is the Vans RV series of aircraft. Here's a large-scale model of the Vans RV-4, as piloted by our own Murph, at our home field in Fair Haven. Be sure to select 1080p resolution for best results!
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. We offer on-site flight instruction, and can help you get started in one of the most rewarding hobbies you'll ever experience.
Wow, did we have an awesome turnout on Sunday to enjoy our latest "toys," both in the air, and on the ground. Above, you can see Ray's new ride, sporting an even bigger engine than my pull-start Scion. Ray, it's a thing of beauty, and we all can't wait to take a ride!
Back in the air, click on Ray's photo, above, to view some of the pics from our weekend endeavors, including Fred's new plane-du-jour, an Eflite EC-1500 military-type cargo plane, complete with counter-rotating props, and an operational cargo door for (hopefully) dropping a cold one via parachute somewhere near my chair in the pit area. We had a great time, and hope to see you and your aircraft at the field in the near future. We still have a few weeks of good flying left!
Restored B-17G to visit KRUT
You're invited to relive history on a historic flight aboard EAA's beautifully restored B-17 Flying Fortress, Aluminum Overcast, which will be at the Rutland Southern Vermont Regional Airport (KRUT) September 20-22. You can opt to either tour the aircraft on the ground, or to take a flight around the Rutland area in this WWII classic aircraft. Click for full details.
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!
