Baltimore’s largest celebration of remote control airplanes takes off on Saturday and Sunday, September 29 and 30 at the Southwest Area Park Modelers’ Fly-In and Family Fun Weekend. Dozens of local hobbyists will maneuver, soar, dip and dive R/C airplanes, jets and helicopters—some with wingspans up to 12 feet long—hundreds of feet in the air. As part of the two day event, families and flyers can enjoy:

Flights and Demonstrations: More than 25 pilots will dazzle visitors with 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.

Commemorative Air Show: At 2 pm on Sunday, the most experienced flyers will perform an air show to honor longtime Southwest Area Modelers club member and former club President Ron Konkus.

Festivities and Food: The Fly-In will also include a raffle for an Edge 540 Aerobatic Plane, grilled foods and cold refreshments. 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.
