The Field

The view shown above looks to the south east, overlooking a small farm field and behind that the 3000 acre Lakewood Forest Preserve. Almost immune from development, the flight area is perfect for powered and soaring operations as well as for terrific FPV exploration. The 125′ runway lies east-west so you’re never looking into the sunrise or sunset. This beautiful and peaceful setting is great for club outings (see the Home page) and just plain hanging out with good friends.

Our electric-only field is located in central Lake County, IL at Gilmer and West Hafer* Roads (south east of the Fairfield Road overpass).[*Hafer is shown as Erhart Road on many maps, including Google Maps.]
