This is our main LARKS flying field. It features a 300 foot Geotextile runway that is 40 feet wide. We have a large fly over area and we fly anything from small electrics to giant scale and sport turbine jets (it's tight fit for turbines due to the proximity of large trees). The annual cost of this membership is $125. You must also maintain a AMA Open membership. This membership level allows you access to our East field, as well. You are a full open member at this level. A LARKS member must unlock the gate from the road prior to entry .
