Directions

Overview

You have been cleared for take-off! Grab the controls of a radio-controlled plane and take to the skies at the annual Charm City Fly In - the largest celebration of radio-controlled flying in Maryland. 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 planes powered by jet engines, propellers and physics. Between flights, kids will love the candy drops from the sky. The Fly-In will include delicious grilled foods, cold beverages and a raffle for an R/C plane. Visitors are also welcome to bring their own food and refreshments.
