CANCELLED - 2020 New England Scale Soaring Aerotow -- Salem, CT -- May 14-17


THE 2020 EVENT IS CANCELLED


Our 11th great year! Thursday-Sunday, May 14-17, 2020

The RC Propbusters (Founded 1937!) 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.

Registration: www.scalesoaring.com/new-england-registration

Current AMA or MAAC membership is required to fly. This is an AMA-sanctioned event.

Directions: N 41 29.509, W 72 13.590 Field address is 479 Norwich Road, Salem, CT 06420. From the intersection of CT Routes 85 & 82, go East on Rt. 82 for about 3 miles. Entrance to the field is on the right. If you come to Rt. 354 (Gardner Lake) you have gone mile too far. From Interstate 395, tale Exit 80 for Route 82 toward Salem. The field is about 6 miles on the left just past the intersection of Route 354.

We hope you will join us!
