New England Aero Tow 2014 - May 16, 17, 18 - Salem, Connecticut, USA


JOIN US!
Scale Soaring in the Connecticut skies as we host our annual three day weekend of AMA-sanctioned scale sailplane aerotow from a beautiful flying site in Salem, CT.
May 16, 17, & 18, 2014!


Towing from a manicured grass field, the surrounding farm fields and rural terrain produces great thermal activity! What’s more, the Connecticut coast area has lots to offer to families and vacationers including beaches, great seafood, the historic town of Mystic and the Mystic Seaport, the ocean beaches of Rhode Island and the 24-7 action at the Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Casino Resorts. The towns of Norwich, New London, Groton, Flanders, Niantic, Mystic, Lyme and Westerly all offer a range of accommodations. Both casinos are close to the field and have hotel operations.

WELCOME BEGINNERS: If you've ever had an interest in aero tow, but have shied away from attending events, please join us for some hands-on learning. We have trainer aircraft ready for you! If you own a scale sailplane or are interested in getting started, we'll be certain to take the time to help you understand the basics, get some quality stick time, and come away from the experience ready to take on future aero tows with the skills and confidence you'll need.

Tow donation: $30 for all three days, $15 any one day. Hot grill lunch and beverages available for purchase. E-power sailplanes are welcome. No winch or high-start.

Registration: Please send your name, address, phone number, AMA number and 2.4G or channel via e-mail to: spasierb @ optonline . net or call 203-246-5881 with any questions. Current AMA membership is required to fly.

With the Lancaster, PA event successfully in the books, next up is Salem, Connecticut in less than one month. A wonderfully supportive club and a beautiful place to fly.

Here are some shots from past events:
