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.
And you thought it was windy in Fair Haven...ha! Even the big boys have their hands full when Mother Nature throws a crosswind at them.
Beautiful Weekend for Flying!
While some of you were up duking it out at Warbirds over Crown Point, the rest of us enjoyed some great flying right here at home. We had good turnouts both Saturday, and again on Sunday, including old friend and pilot Dana Poli and his 120cc giant-scale aerobatic green machine. It has been 5 years since Dana last fired up the engine, and it ran, although just for a few minutes. A new carb is already on order.
Member Rich Ray, of Lake Luzerne, NY, made the trip both days this weekend, and flew his sporty Extra. It's always extra special to talk with nice folks that have been in the hobby awhile, trading stories, and ideas about flying.
Chris Custer was instrumental getting Fred's new Cessna 150 airworthy. Touted as a "BNF" model, the Cessna actually requires quite a bit of building before it's ready to take to the sky.
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!
