Club Profile

An informal club, with few meetings, and a focus on what it takes to keep us flying...but flying comes first!

Formed in 1975, we average 20 members each year. Our members are usually also members of the USHGA, Vermont, Connecticut, and the New England clubs.

Some of our members own a 50 acre landing area in North Adams, and we foster long term relationships with other land owners at our sites.

The dues are cheap, the flying is great, and the folks here have been doing this since the earliest days of the sport. Come join us!
