Charm City Fly-In

Ladies and gentlemen, start your propellers! Baltimore’s largest celebration of remote control airplanes swoops in for another year of high-flying R/C fun.  The free event hosts local hobbyists as they zip their R/C planes, jets and helicopters hundreds of feet in the air. In addition to the stunning air displays over the course of the three-day event, families and flyers will also enjoy:

Flights and Demonstrations: Visitors will be dazzled by more than 25 pilots performing high-soaring stunts in over 100 freestyle flights. Flights are continuous with take-offs from both the 600 ft. grass runway and the 275 ft. paved runway.

Novice Training Sessions: First-time flyers can experience the thrill of piloting an R/C aircraft under the guidance of Southwest Area Modelers club members. Training sessions are completely free of charge.

Festivities and Food: The Fly-In will include grilled foods, cold refreshments, and a raffle for a R/C Super Cub plane valued at $1,500 and a trainer plane package including a one-year Southwest Area Modelers Club membership. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own food and refreshments.

The Fly-In and Family Fun Weekend is a free event and open to the public at the Southwest Area Park in Baltimore Highlands, Landsdowne, Maryland.
