Flying Field Description and Location

DCIM100MEDIA

 

Our field is a great place to fly all types of model aircraft.  It has parallel runways: a 400′ paved surface and a 650′ Bermuda grass surface.  It can handle anything from small electric planes to large turbine powered jet models.  The runways are North-South orientated.  There are acres of cleared land around the field beyond the runways.  The field is especially good for gliders due to varying topography in the surrounding land which produces lots of thermals.
