Hobicco 99,

I live in Miramar, just west of I-75 and Miramar Parkway. I'm probably 20 miles north of you. If you are able to find a place, I will drive down.
Thanks,
Jim

I know of two possible places down here. Both are not completely indoors.
1. is the YMCA in coral gables which is not indoors but it is roofed and is really closed off from any wind. Its a double basketball court.
2. Horse arena at tropical park also not completely enclosed but blocks all wind and has a dome like roof. size of like 4-5 basketball courts.
Both of these would be good choices but i havent asked permission yet.

I live in Boca and would love to find a place to fly.

What about the Goodyear blimp hanger in Pompano? They might let a club fly while the blimp is out...

I know that would be a long shot, but what a great site to fly!

Indoor flying

Hello everyone, I have the same question. I live in Coconut Creek, (Pompano Beach area). The blimp's home would be great, I Thought about it before, but more as for an electric Fly-in if we can sell the idea to manufacturers or so, like an E-fest. There's no event like that here in South Florida.
Want to get together to fly? I fly electric helis and small planes, maybe the recreation complex here in Coconut Creek will do. I might stop by this afternoon and find out. I'll let you guys know.

Coconut Creek Comunity Center

Hello everyone:

I just went to the Coconut Creek Comunity center today, I spoke with somebody there, but the lady was not very receptive, actually the head of the office was on vacation, anyways the lady didn't give me much hope about getting an approval, I tried to sell it as a new club for the community; we'll see maybe I can talk or write a letter to the admistritive office. Also the same person suggested me to go to the Sabal Pines Park office, (Coconut Creek) they have an open field there, we'll see.
I'll keep looking for alternatives.

ME AND MY BUDDY JOHNNY DELUXE WERE LOOKING FOR AN INDOOR FLYING SITE BACK IN 2004, 2005 ,2006 AND IT JUST DOESNT SEEM TO EVER COME TRUE. I HAVENT TOUCHED A PLANE FOR A YEAR NOW AND HE STOPED FLYING ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO. NOT ONLY WAS THERE NO INTEREST IN ANY BODY LETTING US FLY INDOORS BUT WE ALLSO GOT TIRED OF PEOPLE BASHING 3-D PILOTS, I WAS A MEMBER OF THE AMPS CLUB IN MIAMI AND GOT TIRED OF THE LACK OF INTEREST AND BASHING FROM ALL THE OLD FARTS THAT JUST WANT TO DO LOOPS. I WAS FLYING INDOORS FOR A LITTLE WHILE AT THE INDOOR BASKETBALL GYM AT CORAL GABLES HIGH SCHOOL , MY GOOD FRIEND WAS THE PRINCIPAL BUT IT JUST WASNT FUN DOING IT ALLONE. AND THE WEATHER HERE IN MIAMI HAS BEEN SO WINDY FOR ASS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER. I LOVE 3-D PLANES IN THE 4 TO 5 OUNCE RANGE , FLYING UP-CLOSE BUT IT JUST AINT NO FUN NO MORE WITH OUT A GOOD GROUP OF 3-D PILOTS AND THE WIND SUCKS . INDOOR WOULD BE NICE BUT WILL IT EVER HAPPEN HERE IN MIAMI ???

Hi, i have found a place to fly indoors in south miami. Its the South Miami community center. A really nice gym. I fly there myself now and they do charge! $60 an hour. so i have only been there a couple times.
If we can get a group to go there it could be cheaper. Also the only time i have been able to fly in the gym is at 6:00am
