What rules and restrictions are there at circle city flyers?
Circle City Flyers follows AMA guidelines for safety. All members flying at the CCF field must have an AMA card.

Please, no gas or glow engines before 8:30 AM, electrics only (as a courtesy to the residents of the area).
Of course, we have experienced instructors here to help you out at the field
What is the best time to fly at the field?
The field is most busy on the weekend mornings. Most flyers arrive between 8:00 and 9:00 AM and fly throughout the morning. Winds tend to pick up during the day, but are never very predictable.
The field is located in a small canyon and is basically surrounded by hills. The runway and covered areas are paved. The runway runs generally southeast to northwest, and is just a hair over 500 feet. The runway is 50 feet wide.
Winds are usually non-existent during the morning hours; light enough to fly small foamies. Winds tend to gradually increase during the morning and enter the field from the northwest and northeast; that is, you're usually facing into the wind, and it is blowing slightly from the left or right. It wouldn't be a bad idea to practice a bit on a simulator if you're new to landing on a runway.
