Free to the public! Come join our passion for model aviation.

Free State Aeromodelers invites you to come to our 12th annual celebration of scale RC airplanes as the sky comes alive above Konterra Model Air Park in Laurel Maryland Saturday June 25th 2016 for Free State Aeromodelers 12th Annual Airplanes of the World fly-in and air show.

If you are a builder, a pilot, or just a lover of scale model airplanes, please come visit us for our annual fly-in. Witness all manner of scale model aircraft as they take to the skies – From the graceful flights of WWI era biplanes to the thunderous roar of modern turbine jets, it’s all here and open to the public. Bring the family and invite your friends to come along as well.

Our 12th Annual Airplanes of the World is not a scale contest, rather a fly-in whose goal is a fun, social event with liberal amounts of flying and connecting with fellow aviation enthusiasts. An event where old friends gather and new friendships are made – a scale/ standoff scale model fun-fly and air show. Any scale or stand off scale model aircraft is welcome, rotary or fixed wing.


Ample parking is free and Free State will have a concession stand available and filled with food and beverages from 10AM through 2PM Saturday.

Fly all day, stay the night

If you like – fly all day and rest your head that evening. We have restaurants, groceries and lodging close by. You can also try staying at the Greenbelt Campground nearby. Please view our complete list of amenities nearby the flying field (Konterra Model Air Park).
