It’s time to fly! If you’ve always dreamed of being a pilot, this is your chance!

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.”

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.

Between flights, kids will love the candy drops from the sky, and everyone will love the delicious grilled foods, cold beverages and R/C plane raffle. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own food and drink.

New to this year’s Fly-In, all proceeds benefit Disabled American Veterans.

Details and directions can be found at http://swaprc.org/.
