The New Hampshire Flying Tigers Radio Control Club was founded and chartered by the AMA in the early 1970's.
The club's name was inspired by the courageous American Volunteer Group who went to China in August of 1941 under the command of Major Claire Lee Chennault prior to the United States entering World War II. They flew Curtiss P-40B Warhawks and are probably best remembered by the shark's mouth that was painted on the nose of the aircraft.
The club maintains a membership averaging between 50 and 80 members which includes men and women of all ages. Our members fly sport models, scale models, gliders and helicopters.
We maintain two separate flying sites; one with a well groomed model airfield conveniently located behind the industrial park in Derry, the other is located off of Auburn Rd in Londonderry, New Hampshire. We have a lot of pride in our Flight Training Program, people come from miles away to learn to fly with us!
