Flying Sites

Radio Control facilities include a large improved grass area for Soaring activities, four runways (3 asphalt, 1 grass), and helicopter specific grass areas.  Pylon and Aerobatics courses/boxes are permanently, and accurately marked.  Free Flight activities enjoy the use of the entire site.  Grass is kept manicured to facilitate model recovery and roads are developed to aid in model retrieval.  AMA members are entitled to utilize the flying facilities at the IAC at no charge.  Some restrictions apply when special events are in operation.  Members are encouraged to call Joyce Hager (ext 200) prior to coming out to fly, to assure the facility they wish to use is not in use by a special event.
