Members and guests of the Orlando Buzzards have access to a beautiful mowed flying field off Old Lockwood Road via the “rear” entrance to the Seminole State College in Oviedo. (Access is no longer available from Red Ember Road.) Pilots who fly at our flying field should bear in mind that no gas powered planes of any sort are permitted. Only sailplanes and small electrics are to be flown. Fliers should also remember that we only keep this site by being good neighbors so be careful with your plane. (It is especially important to keep planes away from the horses on the southern side of the field. This area above the horse barns is a “no fly” zone and the only time you should be above this are is if you are more than 3 times the tree height.) Fliers should also be mindful of frequency control — We have a frequency board and the appropriate peg is to be attached to your transmitter BEFORE switching it on in the vicinity of the field.
Club members are usually flying on Saturdays between 9:00am and 4:00pm but some fly at other times during the week also. If you want to visit us and be sure that someone is at the field please contact one of the club members listed on this page to arrange a suitable time.
All are welcome.
