Landing Zone

The flight park runs parallel to a two lane public paved road. The landing area is 150’ wide by 1300’ long, allowing ample room for pilots to set up their approach and not overshoot the LZ. To assist in reducing the risk of landing for newer pilots, a 150 foot by 30 foot sand landing target has been constructed in the landing zone. This softer target area assists newer pilots in sharpening their landing skills.

Due to the wind primarily coming from the southwest, the standard landing pattern is for pilots to approach the landing zone from the east and continue west. All pilots should consider that the wind can change direction quickly. Pilots should check the wind indicators while on approach to ensure a headwind, and land accordingly.

The very large landing area is used for all wing types, mini-wing, paragliders and hang gliders. Pilots are advised to be alert and watchful for other wings and wing types on approach. Paragliders and hang gliders generally stage much farther east, while mini-wings tend to make shorter approaches, closer to the breakdown area.
