Virginia Beach - Electric Club/Park/School Flying
 
Hello,

I started this thread to discuss places people have found to fly their park flyers and small electrics in the City of Virginia Beach.

We have a couple of really good flying clubs in our area, but both are located in Chesapeake, which is quite a drive for a quick after work flying session. I am hoping that people will post places they have found to fly in the Virginia Beach Area.

Also if anyone is interested, I am willing to work with anyone trying to get a new flying site established in Virginia Beach.

Matt

Welcome! There is a gang that meets at a school up near First Colonial Road and I fly at a school down near the Redmill Commons shopping area called 3 Oaks Elementary. Let me know when you are going to fly and we can try to meet.

I still need to purchase some batteries and a charger to get going and practice flying on mode 2.

For a local hobby shop, Debbie's Hobbies over in Chesapeake can not be beat - if they do not have it, they will order it for you!

You can also get good deals at United Hobbies out of China.

sorry I have been busy getting myself enrolled in school but yea would be good to hang out.. I have been going down to soccer sports complex by the amphitheater its been good to fly around there... except when they have events probably not a good idea.....

And i still have to get my license to drive around.My wonderful wife is driving me around till i get the thing done so many changes in life...

Nelapaty,

I see from your pictures, you are actually flying at the soccer complex:eek:, that place is full of soccer games all Spring long and I am sure they will kick you off if they ever see you there at anytime, they are pretty serious out there. If that is not the case, let me know because they have great fields. I have pretty much just stayed away from there.

Your planes look great, I have a SS and a GWS TigerMoth as well as a GWS P-51.

Talk to you soon,

Matt

Well'' I have flown there a couple of times...We have not officially asked for permission but I know what you mean...Nobody has said anything yet and i dont go there on a regular basis and im sure we will get kicked off if there are events happenin...
Maybe we should look for another place...

Hey guys I went down there at about 3:45ish (The Soccer complex) This time While i was flying!!!
A guy drove in He had keys to the place and was dropping stuff in the store room towards the corner of the field. He didn't look like He was bothered with me flying around..so im assuming it should not be a problem to fly there unless there are events happening around the place...
