Charm City Fly-in: Remote Controlled Airplane Festival

The annual Charm City Fly-In is the largest celebration of radio-controlled flying in Maryland, with two-days of demonstrations, airshows, and hands-on experiences for the entire family. Dozens of aviators from the Southwest Area Park (SWAP) Modelers will teach you how to taxi, take off and soar the skies as you guide model planes – some up to 10 feet long – hundreds of feet in the air. When you’re not piloting a plane, witness the aerial maneuvers of the skilled pilots as they dip, flip and bank their planes high overhead in a “Fun Fly Competition.” Between flights, kids will enjoy the candy drops from the sky!

The SWAP modelers will be showing off more than 30 hand-built, intricate, radio-controlled planes and helicopters powered by jet engines, propellers and physics. One remote-controlled plane will be raffled off on Sunday.

Concessions featuring grilled items and cold drinks will be available for purchase, and will benefit Disabled American Veterans. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own food and refreshments.
