Typically it requires notice ahead of time but is usually approved or perhaps a regular flying schedule can be arranged. I'll post the full text when I get home. Over all it was a very positive reply from the desk of the mayor.
Nice.

I flew there yesterday about 5:00pm. There were no construction workers. Some guy in a truck came through when I was packing up my plane. He stopped and was checking me out for a good minute or two. He never said anything and finally drove off.

It is a great place to fly, but I must admit the guy creeped me out a little. I wish I would have tried to talk to him before he drove off.

Win - heres the link for the thunder power charger i have. Its AC/DC and comes with one pigtail to put your own connector on it. Its not as good as my Hyperion but its still a good charger.

Also while I was at the maker faire the guy who fly rockets at fentress told me once they are allowed to fly again it will be every first and third Saturday. So second and fourth Saturday plus Sundays should be open or flying again.

Flyzone FW-190

Hey guys, figured I would post it here first. I recently bought a FW-190 and maidened it the other day. I had a tip stall on landing and it busted out the balsa mount that the motor is attached to. I have decided to just let it go instead of trying to repair it. Would anyone be interested in it? It also has a crack on the fuselage that I will fix today with epoxy and the wing has a flex crack but nothing damaging to the wing. I will put photos up today. This thing retails for roughly $200 and it is a 6 channel with flaps and gears and is in the 1100mm range.

We still have hope. Its only going to be a few showers now and 30% chance so we still have a chance of flying. (fingers cross)

Make sure it doesn't fall into the recall category.

As far as I know with VB you can fly on public land that isn't controlled by Parks and Rec. Lynnhaven middle has had parks and rec watch us fly because just the other side of the fence is a public park, they were waiting for someone to land there to bust us.

From 2012 VB Parks and Recs rules. Prohibited activities, "Flying motor-powered or remote-controlled-aircraft, rockets, or gliders"

http://www.vbgov.com/government/depa...park-rules.pdf

VB city parks that fall into this category.
Code:
    Bayville Farms Park
    Beach Garden Park
    City View Park
    Great Neck Park
    Little Island Park
    Lynnhaven Park
    Marshview Park
    Mount Trashmore Park
    Munden Point Park
    Providence Park
    Red Mill Farms Park
    Red Wing Park
    Woodstock Park
    Williams Farm Park
Found out the hard way trying to fly at Red Wing, I got run off.
