The Ken Page Memorial Flying Field

Our field has four pilot stations at a 300′ x 45′ Geotex runway with 100′ grass overruns and a large overfly area. The grassy “pits” area has multiple work stands and a covered open pavilion with picnic tables. Helicopters may fly on the side, and there is ample room for quads (quads may not fly in the same airspace with RC aircraft)

During the 2019 outdoor season we will begin work on a quad racing / freestyle area on the south end of the field (the tree line at the top of the above photo).

Club Business Meetings

Meetings are on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. During the winter we meet at the Mentor Library on Rt 20. During the summer months we meet at the flying field.

Club members can download meeting minutes from the past year on the Club Docs page.

Events

We host various events throughout the year including regular “fun flys”, a club picnic, and a Memorial event. We help members learn how to fly on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings. We also fly indoors at various venues during the winter months.

All MARCS events can be found on the Events page.
