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, typically Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays 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.
October Club Meeting
Mark your calendars for our next club meeting, which will be held at 10am on Sunday, October 15 at either our airfield, or the National Guard Building, depending on the weather. On the docket will be 2024 club officer elections. If you'd like to serve the club as an officer, it's not too late to start campaigning!
Events at a Glance
Flying this Week - Pick a Day!
See that bright golden orb peeking out from the side of that cumulus cloud? Well, get set to enjoy a bunch of sunshine this week, as we get treated to a rare string of at least partly sunny days. Yep...Monday through next Sunday the weather guys are telling us flying weather is going to be great.
As such, you can pretty much 'pick' your day to enjoy some flights. Of course, our 'usual' flying day, Tuesday, promises an extra dose of sun, with highs topping out around 70. We might have to dust off the old sailplane yet again, and make sure she's thermal-ready!
Whatever you like to fly, be sure to get out and take advantage of this beautiful fall weather. After all, it's a limited time offer!
