RC Airplane Show

DERRY — The New Hampshire Flying Tigers Radio Control Cub and other local clubs will demonstrate their aircraft and flying skills at the 2013 New England Radio Control Fly-In on June 29 and 30, from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., 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.

The Fly-In 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. Although admission is free, spectators are asked to bring a non-perishable food item that will be donated to Derry’s Sonshine Food Kitchen.

This year, Saturday’s activities will focus on fixed-wing aircraft while Sunday will focus on helicopters. 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.
