Signal Seekers Current Conditions

Our Flying Site

Signal Seekers Flying Site

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.

Our flying site is an FAA Recognized Identification Area (FRIA), an FAA and Homeland Security designation that allows for RC operations without the need for a remote ID module installed in your aircraft. Once the remote ID requirement goes into effect in March of 2024, Signal Seekers members can enjoy an exemption from this rule while flying at our site.

Shelter and Flight Line

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!
