Scale Soaring in the Connecticut skies as we host our annual AMA-sanctioned scale sailplane aero tow from a beautiful flying site in Salem, CT . Towing from a manicured grass field, the surrounding farm fields and rural terrain produces great thermal activity!

Any RC sailplane that can be aerotowed is welcomed! Electric-powered and ALES sailplanes welcomed! No winches or highstarts permitted.

Tow donation: $40 for all four days, $15 any one day. Hot grill lunch and beverages available for purchase Friday-Sunday

Registration: Please send your name, address, phone number, AMA number and 2.4G or channel via e-mail to: spasierb at optonline dot net. Current AMA membership is required to fly.

Powerful tugs capable of towing sailplanes up to 10 meters! Come fly with us!
Door Prizes Sailplane and Gear Raffle Awards 50/50

Details for the event are coming together. Two weeks away!

Four days of flying so join us for any one or all four. We have a good word in with the weather gods.

The countdown is on.
The New England Aerotow is only days away, so today we took the opportunity to tune up a couple tow planes.
The Payload Master had all the servo's changes over from Power HD to Spectrum to get rid of the slop issues associated with that brand. With 180cc under the hood, this beast will pull anything you bring, including your trailer.
Rob brought out his 40% Hempel clipped wing Cub and had some fun doing one wheel landings.
Its all ready to go too.
We have reliable tugs available to pull anything from foamies to monsters so load up your fleet and head on over.
Looking forward to seeing all our friends and meet some new ones.
