GPS Longitude – Deg. -74 Min. 25 Sec. 22 W

From the East:Take Rt. 72 West to between the 10 and 11 mile markers.   Look for the gate on your left.  The gate to our field is a small gate with a “stop” sign on it; if you reach the large gate (where the full-scale hangars are visible), you’ve gone too far.

Go through the gate (Please, lock it behind you!). Follow the road around, staying to the right at the fork. When you come out to the large opening, that’s the runway. Stay to the left side; the pits are ahead on your left. Please, be alert for model and full-scale traffic.
