The RC soaring field at the VVRCF flying site is 1100 feet long & 400 wide. There are 10 winch positions, indicated by the white dots across the field photo. Winches are spaced across 275 feet with 600 feet to turnarounds.
Turnarounds are in concrete and compatible with most pulley types. The turnarounds are in the top right corner of the photo.
The landing flight line is 80 feet behind the winch positions (white line).
10 landing tapes are spaced across 275 feet.
The landing surface is dirt. Grass someday. In the uppermost photo at the right 10 yellow landing tapes exist to the left of the white flight line.
The field is at a 3000 foot altitude with wind primarily from the south.
RV parking and toilet facilities are on site. Also, we are very close to RV full hookups at Hesperia Lakes Park.
