I've finally summarized what people have posted in this thread. There are a lot of flying sites that don't have any contact info like an email or web site. If you know any of that information, please post it and I'll add it to the bullet point for that site to help people find them.

The purpose of this thread is now to be a Yellow Pages of sorts for indoor flying sites around the world. It is also to be a source of information that people are willing to share on how to go about finding and then obtaining a flying site. I know from experience that it can take some selling to convince officials that what we do is pretty harmless.

This thread can also be a place where people post that they are interested in forming or finding an indoor site in a particular area. If there get to be enough of these I may summarize them in one post just to keep things compact.

So, thank you to all who have posted information here. I appologize if I have taken liberties as I summarized what you wrote. My goal was to present the information in a reasonable fashion in bullet point form. Please keep them coming.

Indoor Site Yellow Pages

I'll list and summarize what people have posted here. If you want additional information to appear, or the information (like email or phone) changes, please post in this thread with a request to make the change and I will do so. Think of this as a yellow pages for indoor flying sites.

UNITED STATES
  • Alabama (Huntsville): three Indoor flying sites in Huntsville, Alabama. See: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=898132 post #1 for the latest schedules, and further in for details, photos, etc. All three are free, open to the public, and do not require AMA membership.Plus at Grace United Methodist Church, I bring 4 loaner Vapors and 9 loaner mCX helicopters, without cost or obligation! Contact Jim Marconnet.
  • California: The Simi Valley Indoor Flyers fly at the Rancho Santa Susana Recreational Center in Simi Valley, no charge, AMA license for R/C, FF welcome. Contact Matt Keennon: keennon@aerovironment.com
  • California: Southern Kern Indoor Flyers (SKIF) is a brand new group starting up about 80 miles north of Los Angeles. http://www.qnet.com/~skif
  • California: Fun Fly sessions at JLS Middle School in Palo Alto. Location: 480 E. Meadow Dr., Palo Alto . This is at the intersection of Waverly and E. Meadow. At the light, head south in to the school parking lot. The gym is located at the end of the drive. AMA is required. PM Kasra on the Ezone for more information.

They have their own own forums for Bay Area folks at: www.bayrc.com/boards
    The indoor forum:http://www.bayrc.com/boards/viewfor...3e9a28ebe5a4fcf
  • Florida: The Indian River Kontrol Society (IRKS) in Brevard County, FL (Melbourne/Palm Bay area) has a twice-a-year indoor fly at the Cocoa Expo center/fairgrounds near the intersection of I-95 and SR 520. We fly in a gym (3 side-by-side basketball courts with a 33 foot ceiling). We usually have this in conjunction with our Big Bird and our Warbird meets in January and July respectively. We charge everyone (pilots and spectators) $2 to cover the rent, with any excess going to our flying site fund. We usually fly from 7-10pm on a Saturday night, and we usually have a good crowd both flying and spectating. Lately we've broken the flying up into periods of open flying and several half-hour periods devoted to only stick & tissue planes and Free Flight (the planes which don't bounce as well as a Lite Stik.) We've had everything from blimps to Dave Platt's Demoisselle to Gary Jones' big B-36 fly there, and invariably some impromptu silliness breaks out... Lite Stik combat, inverted limbo, carrier landings on card tables, carrier landings UNDER card tables, duct-tape covered IFO's trying to get wayward blimps off the ceiling, etc. Everyone always has a great ole' time. With some luck maybe we can start holding these events more often. BTW, the next indoor event is coming up on Sept. 6th. More info is on the http://www.irks.org web site.
  • Georgia: Atlanta Indoor RC Aircraft have a huge indoor facility for indoor flying. More information can be found at their AIR web site. They may not have this facility any more.

    NOTE: The administrators at Forest Grove have been very kind in making arrangements for us to use their "Field House" in exchange for our working with their children to assemble "AMA Darts". The dates and times of our working with the children have not yet been set. Everyone who wishes to fly with us at this facility will be expected to volunteer to help in some way with teaching the children when the time comes.
    WHERE AND WHEN TO ENTER: There are two parking lots in front of the building. Use either one. Between the lots, at the center of the building is a flight of stairs leading to an open patio. On the right side (south side) of the patio is an entrance marked "door 34". This is the (only) entrance we will use. PLEASE NOTE: This door is kept locked. Entry is by ringing a bell. The administrators do not want to require someone to leave their office to open the door for each pilot who comes in. Therefore they have strongly requested that we post someone at the door at each start time to open it for our members. One of us will be at the door at 1:30 and for a reasonable time thereafter (20 minutes). THIS MEANS THAT EVERYONE MUST BE ON TIME. Stragglers must not ring the bell. At our first session we will discuss whether we can provide for forbidden latecomers.

Obtaining an Indoor Site

In this post I'll put down what I know about getting the use of an indoor site. Periodically I'll sumarize what other people post about their experiences and tips.

FINDING A SITE

School gyms are one of the most common potential indoor sites around. Flying indoor planes will come after any official school activities like basketball games, then after school club related activities. You will be competing with adult basket ball leagues and other non-school activities. Typically you pay a fee to file for the use of the gym. Then you generally pay a rate per hour to rent the gym, like $15 to $20 per hour. You will also generally pay a custodian by the hour to open up the gym and close it down, for the entire time you have the use of the gym. This is also often $15 to 20 per hour. Custodian rates can be higher in the evenings and/or on Saturday or Sunday. Schools generally don't start setting their schedules until the middle of the summer for the following school year. In some cases Schools don't charge the rental fee. And there are cases of getting involved with the school via a club and then paying no fee.

National Guard Armories are another common flying site. Most areas have them. And, they generally have a single basket ball court or larger gym. And advantage is that you are not competing with all sorts of school activities for flying time. You are only competing with the Guard (which often doesn't use the facilities that much) and other groups such as yourself. Typically you are renting the facility from your state. And, there will generally be a rental fee and a custodial fee.

Churches seem to be a good possibility. Perhaps someone can give more detail or suggestions that I can summarize here.

University facilities have the advantage of being large, but are often expensive. If you have a contact at the university go for it. Your fellow micro flyers will love you.

INSURANCE
Most facilities will require insurance coverage. In the US this means you will need it via the AMA. If you are part of an existing club, an additional flying site like an indoor facility can be covered for $60 for one year. If you are not part of a local club, you can form your own with five members (only a couple of whom need to be over 18). The annual cost to have a AMA chartered club is $30, plus the $60 for your indoor flying site.

VARIOUS PEOPLE'S EXPERIENCES

John Gardener writes: Last year the AeroFlakes organized and started up. The process was quite simple. I wanted a venue nearby and there was none operating. I checked with the local college, the golf dome, and our new rec center. The college wanted $400/hr. The sports dome wanted $150/hr and would be late evenings. The Rec center wanted $130 per four hour session and had weekend day openings. Armed with a workable venue I contacted local e-zoners and asked about interest. It did not take long to find some interested parties willing to work at setting up things. Greg Covey had great connections with the local clubs, and Dan Hurd was interested in sponsoring the events. The workload spread out and the group was born.

I am in the process of updating the "yellow pages" part of this thread. We now have about 43 sites listed. Thanks.

I've had to split out the International flying sites into a separate post as we had too much text for the text limitations in one post. I need to do some rearranging within the thread, so please be patient till I get it moved up with the US sites listing.

I'm in the process of deleting posts that have out of date flying dates. Please feel free to list dates here as you learn of them or schedule them now that we are in indoor season.

Also feel free to start or continue using separate threads for your individual site to announce dates, etc. That's a better place to talk to each other about whether you plan to come to a flying session or not.

Let's keep this thread for new flying sites to be added to the "yellow pages" part of the thread, and to post date or time changes or updates.

Keep them coming.

evening of flying is Friday, 11-12-04. There are several nights
scheduled over the course of the winter. I have listed the dates
below. There won't be any real changes over the procedure from last
year. Everything seemed to work smoothly and I don't see a need to
change anything.
The $5 cost for flying for the night will remain the same. I ask
anyone who is planning to come and fly to please let me know by the
Thursday morning before the flying night. This is so I can make
sure we have enough people to pay for the gym rental. Once I am
sure we will have enough people I will send out an e-mail to
everyone confirming that Friday nights flying is a go. Also make
sure you watch the weather. If they close school due to weather we
won't be flying. If you want to call me before you leave to come
fly my phone # and e-mail address are listed below.
As in the past everyone must be a current AMA member. I ask
everyone to please bring your AMA card with you when you come to
fly. Also, anyone using a lead acid battery for charging you planes
batteries, please have the battery in a protective container for
the protection of the gym floor and tables.

The following dates are reserved for us for flying:

November 12, 2004
December 10, 2004
January 7, 14, 21, 28, 2005
February 11, 18, 2005
March 4, 2004

All dates listed are on a Friday from 7pm to 10pm
.
If you have any questions feel free to call me or e-mail me.

If you are looking for a place to stay in Wisconsin Rapids when you attend
the indoor flying some Friday night, we'd suggest either the Best Western
715.423.3211 (around $70, but no pool, cereal/toast breakfast is included in
room price) or the AmericInn 715.424.3444. The AmericInn has an Italian
restaurant next door, a pool, etc. if you are looking for more amenities for
a little more $.

East Junior High School is the location for the indoor electric flying
events. The junior high school is two blocks west of 8th Street, on 6th
Street. >From the stoplight intersection of 8th Street and Grand Avenue, turn
west on Grand Avenue, towards Hanger's Cleaners and Dairy Queen. Turn south
(left) after 2 blocks, just past Taco John's, on 6th Street. The stop sign
intersection after the turn is the corner of Peach and 6th. The school gym
is ahead and to the right, and you can park in the lot just east of the
school gymnasium.
