Virginia Beach - Electric Club/Park/School Flying


Hello,

I started this thread to discuss places people have found to fly their park flyers and small electrics in the City of Virginia Beach.

We have a couple of really good flying clubs in our area, but both are located in Chesapeake, which is quite a drive for a quick after work flying session. I am hoping that people will post places they have found to fly in the Virginia Beach Area.

Also if anyone is interested, I am willing to work with anyone trying to get a new flying site established in Virginia Beach.

Welcome! There is a gang that meets at a school up near First Colonial Road and I fly at a school down near the Redmill Commons shopping area called 3 Oaks Elementary. Let me know when you are going to fly and we can try to meet.

For a local hobby shop, Debbie's Hobbies over in Chesapeake can not be beat - if they do not have it, they will order it for you!

You can also get good deals at United Hobbies out of China.

Nelapaty - I did not know you were still out there! Let's get together - what is the field at Salem like? My son has a buddy near there so he would be willing to head over there.

Bob - I PMed you - maybe we all can get together over the longish weekend...

Nelapaty,

I see from your pictures, you are actually flying at the soccer complex, that place is full of soccer games all Spring long and I am sure they will kick you off if they ever see you there at anytime, they are pretty serious out there. If that is not the case, let me know because they have great fields. I have pretty much just stayed away from there.

Your planes look great, I have a SS and a GWS TigerMoth as well as a GWS P-51.

Talk to you soon,

Matt

Hey guys I went down there at about 3:45ish (The Soccer complex) This time While i was flying!!!
A guy drove in He had keys to the place and was dropping stuff in the store room towards the corner of the field. He didn't look like He was bothered with me flying around..so im assuming it should not be a problem to fly there unless there are events happening around the place...
