The entrance to our field is located at 3821 South Henry Ruff, on the west side of the road just south of Michigan Avenue. The main gate leads to a community garden, and a second interior gate leads to the field. Follow the road around the the left and you’ll see the main field to your left, and the FPV field to your right.
Our center of operations, at Latitude 42.279096°, Longitude -83.343320°, is our 720 square foot permanent shelter added in 2013 to provide shade and a place for spectators to relax and watch the pilots.
The fenced flight line runs diagonally Northwest to Southeast to take advantage of the prevailing winds in the area. We also have a windsock to monitor flying conditions, and a storage container where we keep picnic and maintenance supplies. Our flyover space is over 45 acres, with 5 acres kept short and regularly rolled to provide a suitable surface for takeoffs and landings.
The flight line includes several starting benches with holdbacks for warming up your engines, and a portable restroom is also provided during the flying season.
See you at the field!
