Yup, North is up on those maps. We use the Northrup Grumman site quite frequently.

UPDATE

The sites listed aren't all still available. The Moquin Drive Aerodrome and the Northrop Grumman sites have construction going on.

Nektar field

*quoted from dleviner*

The 800x300 ft dimension I believe is right on. This is the dim of the grassy portion of the field. Don't forget that there is an entire cotton field surrounding it to the North, NW, and West that gives you a total of 1800ft x 1200 ft flying area. Oh, another thing... I have never been "hit" flying my Berg or FMA receivers.

*end quote*
