Flying site for guys (or gals) in Anchorage, Alaska.


Nice site for flying gas or electric at the new South Anchorage Sports Field Complex. Located at the southwest corner of Minnesota Dr. and C street. Turn south on to C Steet off of Minnesota and go about 1/4 mile. Entrance on the right. No club affiliation here. Just a bunch of R/C'ers getting together to fly. 3 soccer fields, 2 baseball fields (third planned) and unused paved parking lots to fly off of. Several flyers told me they also fly there in the winter with snow skis or floats on the snow. It would be a good idea to visit other flyers if you see them when you arrive or they arrive later and find out what channels they are using to prevent channel conflicts. Note: this site is in FAA controlled air space from the surface to 4,100 feet. So I would'nt get high enough to show up on their radar screens as they might pay a (heh heh) "visit" if they start seeing a bunch of funny little blips on their screens. Site is 4-1/2 miles from the control tower of Ted Stevens International Airport. So far there has not been a problem though.

Happy flying !,
Carl
