Our Flying field

Our flying field is a 4 acre facility located on a 600 acre farm in eastern Hanover County. The site is located approximately 15 miles east of the center of Richmond on U.S. Route 360.

Access to the flying field is via a farm road leading off of U.S. Rt. 360. The field is marked by a sign on the south side of Rt. 360 (right-hand side traveling East). Follow the farm road from Rt. 360. Make the first left hand turn from the farm road and follow the tree line. Continue on the farm road until you see a second sign marking the entrance to the field.

The field is open from sun rise to sunset daily. Visitors are always welcome.
