Memorial Flying Field
Memorial Field, our world class 50 acre unobstructed flying site, features a 50 X 450 ft paved runway, with a parallel 100x500 ft grass runway. The field features 4 screened pilot boxes, fenced pit area with 20 model setup tables covered by sun shades, shaded spectator area with safety screening, as well as three 200 watt solar powered charging stations for the electric fliers. Pilot parking is at the pits. Spectator parking is directly adjacent. In addition, we have sanitary outhouse facilities. An electric generator is used for special events. However, we have no water hook up. We have also just added a live on line (including this site) weather reporting system, for those who would like to check conditions at Memorial Field before they drive all the way out.
Location: Near I-75 and exit 195. Go east on Laurel, turn north on Knights Trail, proceed 4.5 miles to Sarasota County Land Fill, follow signs to the rear of the complex. ( Gates are locked every Sunday, plus New Years, July 4th, Thanksgiving and Christmas day.)
