NUTMEG R/C FLYERS, INC.

Welcome! You have landed at the web home of Nutmeg R/C Flyers, Inc. An AMA chartered, remote control flying club, operating at the base of Thomaston Dam in Thomaston, CT. For almost 50 years, Nutmeg R/C Flyers, Inc. has been dedicated to the preservation of model aviation and the education/training of new model pilots. Come, visit us, you'll be glad you did!

FRIA status granted by FAA

In case you missed it, Joe Bessette worked with the AMA to have our flying field recognized by the FAA as a hobbyist flying location.  FRIA status allows us to fly without the need for RemoteID transmitters in our aircraft.

 

This exception applies only while you are at our field.  Flying in other locations will require RemoteID transmitters after March 16, 2024 for any aircraft over 250grams.

 

 

 

 

 

Next Meeting is January 11, 2024 7:30pm

Thomaston Town Hall in the Crescent Gallery

 

Officer elections will be taking place.  For those who didn't attend the last meeting, Gene and Kris are looking to step down as President and Vice President of the club.  Both have been serving for quiet awhile and need a break.

 

If you want to step up, you need to attend this meeting and help guide the club for the next year.
