2019 New England Scale Soaring Aero Tow - Salem, CT - May 16-19


Our first annual event, 10th great year! Thursday- Sunday, May 16-19, 2019

The RC Propbusters present our annual four-day AMA-sanctioned scale sailplane aerotow weekend. Come enjoy our beautiful site in Salem, CT. Soaring from a manicured grass field, the surrounding farm fields and rural terrain produces fantastic thermal activity! Directions to the field and more information here: http://rcpropbusters.com/flying-field.html

The Connecticut coast has lots to offer including beaches, great seafood, the historic town of Mystic and Mystic Seaport, Rhode Island ocean beaches and the 24/7 action at Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Casino resorts. Towns of Norwich, New London, Groton, Flanders, Niantic, Mystic, Lyme and Westerly offer a range of hotel accommodations.

WELCOME BEGINNERS and ELECTRIC FLYERS: If you've ever had an interest in sailplane aero tow, please join us for some hands-on learning. If you own a scale sailplane or are interested in getting started, we'll help you get some stick time. All forms of electric-powered sailplanes are welcome to fly. No winch or high-start flying is permitted.

Tow donation: $60 for all four days, $20 any one day. Grill lunch & beverages available for purchase.
