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.
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.
Perfect Fall Flying!
We were blessed with a near-perfect flying weekend during the Columbus Holiday weekend. Foliage was beautiful, and so were the flying conditions. Lots of sunshine, and very low winds to report. Pilots enjoyed flying craft from helicopters to jets, and pretty much everything in between.
On Sunday the club met for our final club meeting of the year. Save the date for December 14th, which is our annual Christmas Party. We'll be celebrating this year at the Iron Lantern Restaurant in Castleton, and would love to have you join us. $32 per person covers our room, a buffet dinner, and all the hangar talk you can muster. For full details, check the meeting minutes from Sunday's meeting.
While you're reading things, take a moment to review the club's operational and safety guidelines, also included with the latest club meeting minutes. A big part of enjoying our hobby is making sure we do things safely. We must say, everyone is doing a great job in that area...keep up the good work!
In this video, Chris C puts his Align 550 through its paces. There's a cameo appearance by Jason Q landing his aircraft...Jason, it was good to see you at the field once again!
