FIELD FEATURES

The field is located on a landfill owned by Henry County, which sits on a slight rise from the surrounding terrain.

The field has a blacktop paved runway, 40' wide by 400' long, oriented north-south. Adjacent to the runway, nearer the flying stations, is a useable grass landing strip.

The useable airspace measures approximately 1500' (460m) north-south, and roughly 700' (210m) east-west. It is bordered by a recycling center on the north, and the ballfield complex to the south. Both NO-FLY zones.

There are 5 covered shelters with workbenches, electric power, paved floors and electric fans. The center shelter has a drink vending machine and cooler. There is an oversized, wheelchair-accessible Port-o-Potty.

There are 5 flying stations, plus warmup and tuning benches, and a runup pad for larger models.
