Very nice!!
Question, can you tell me what material is used on your runway?
I would like to propose something like that to our club for the smaller aircraft that don't do so well on grass.


Thanks!

The runway was made from conveyor belts we were given from a papermill. It is a thick nylon mesh type of material. Paper mills replace their belts every so often and if you have any contacts at the place you might be able to get them but you'll need a hefty trailer and truck to transport them.

Thank you.
No paper mills in my area. Good idea though!

That is awesome. Looks like you could use more rudder throw to make ground handling easier.
