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.

Indoor Flying Sunday, March 10th at 8am
We had a really nice group for indoor flying on Sunday, and met some new flying enthusiasts who joined us all the way from Saugerties, NY! Ed and Sharon, it was our pleasure to host you, and we hope to see you again, soon...thanks for flying with us!
Don't forget, our last indoor flying session will be held on Sunday, March 10th. Once again, our activites will run from 8-10am that morning, at the Rutland Rec Dept's Community Center in Rutland. Be there, or be square!
