RC Airplane Fly-In

DERRY —This year, the 5th Annual New England RC Airplane Fly-In scheduled for June 29 and 30 is supporting Derry’s Sonshine Soup Kitchen by asking spectators to donate a non-perishable food item for admission. Held at the NH Flying Tigers air field on B Street in Derry, the two-day event will feature a variety of aircraft including helicopters, gliders, aerobatic planes and scale models. The public is invited to not only watch RC pilots flying their airplanes, but to also try their own hand at flying a radio control airplane. Admission is free and a food item donation is requested, but not mandatory.

The Fly-In runs each day from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and is open to both the public and RC airplane and helicopter pilots. The NH Flying Tigers airfield is accessed by an unpaved road off B Street immediately next to the blue “Total Air Supply” building where there will be parking available.

This year, Saturday will focus on fixed-wing aircraft while Sunday will focus primarily on helicopters but will include fixed-wing aircraft. In addition to flying demonstrations, static aircraft will be on display, food and refreshments available, complete “ready to fly” RC airplane and helicopter packages will be raffled. There will be door prizes raffles for participating pilots.

Thanks to new technologies making RC airplanes easier to learn, safer and affordable, the sport is enjoying a huge increase in popularity. The Fly-In will allow participants to view the latest in equipment as well as an opportunity to ask questions and learn about RC airplanes from members of the area’s RC flying clubs.

For directions and more information, go to the NH Flying Tigers website at, or call Paul Lockwood at 437-2847.
