Welcome

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. We're there almost any day that conditions allow 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.

Fun Fly 2024!

Earlier this week, we didn't even think a Fun Fly would be possible, given the rains originating from the remnants of the most recent hurricane. Well, Bunky, things cleared up and cleared up nicely, thank-you, and the show DID go on!

A big thank-you to Conner of WCAX-TV, and Greg of PEG-TV for making the trip, and getting us 'on' the air, even before we took to the air! We had a nice turnout of 32 area pilots that enjoyed everything that the Rutland County RC Flyers have to offer, and we have a lot!

Of course, Mother Nature had to do a photo bomb of sorts and a narrow line of sometimes heavy showers temporarily put a damper on things. But the high spirits prevailed, and Phil Camp's noontime airshow was a big hit for pilots and spectators alike.

This year marked longtime club member Dave Dress's swan song as our Fun Fly announcer, and we collectively thank you, Dave, for your smooth delivery providing insight for our spectators via the club PA system.

Our President Murph was kept busy signing autographs after his debut appearance on Channel 3, and club Secretary/web guy Pete Galligan cemented in everyone's mind that he truly has the 'perfect face for radio' given his performance in front of the cameras of local PEG-TV!

A huge shout-out to club pilot Bob Stack, who provided the masses with culinary delights that would have certainly taken the blue ribbon on ANY reality cooking show! Bob started the day at 165 lbs, but literally sweat himself down to about 130 during his stint at the grill.

And finally, a big thank-you to Robin, Maggie, and Kari for pushing those raffle tickets, and helping out at the food stand. We couldn't have done this event without you!
