About Air Meet 2012
All-day fun for any age, spectators will be stunned by professional-level demonstrations of skill and daring with dazzling RC helicopter performances, incredible precision and speed of RC jet aircraft, the everyday whimsy of ultra micro RC aircraft, classic Control Line Aerobatics and the excitement of dirt-thrashing RC off-road racing.
Like no other event with this kind of action, Horizon Hobby Air Meet invites everyone to join the fun with "Try Me" activities that make it possible to experience, hands-on, the thrill of driving a performance RC car or airplane. Plus, there will be RC flight simulators throughout the event available for the public to virtually experience what it's like to pilot rare aircraft like those demonstrated on the runway.
Whether you're an RC pilot or just a fan of motor sports and the excitement it offers, come to beautiful New England and enjoy an air show spectacular the way it was meant to be.
On-site parking available; $10 per guest carload, per day
