Designated Flying Area

The designated flying area at Carl Henson Field, as decided by the membership, is as follows:

All flying is conducted north of the southern line of the runway with the following two exceptions:

1) Small electric aircraft, (park flyer or smaller) and helicopters can use/fly in the area west of the pits designated as the “Heli Pad”.

2) Flying is permitted south of the runway in the airspace to the west of/beyond the west end of the runway, as far south as the flyer can safely operate the aircraft.

There is no flying over the Burgess residence or in the air above within 200 feet horizontally of the residence, (imagine a circular wall going up infinitely in the sky 200 feet from the house).

Another way of looking at it: Imagine a line running along the south end of the runway, going east infinitely and to the west it turns 90 degrees south and goes on infinitely.  All flying must be done beyond the lines to the north and west, (except for previously discussed heli pad use).
