The normal location for most club functions is at our primary field on 240 Langrum Branch Road in York.  This is the former York County landfill site.  You would not really know that this was a former landfill except for the monitoring wells located on the property.

FIELD CONFIGURATION

Our field is organized into two distinct areas - a primary flight line with 5 pilot stations and a secondary flight line for helicopters.

Birds Eye View

PRIMARY FLIGHT LINE

The Primary Flight Line has 5 pilot stations and fixed wing aircraft has priority in this area.  


SECONDARY FLIGHT LINE

Rotary wing craft are encouraged to use the Secondary Flight Line.  Rotary wing pilots are welcome to use the Primary Flight Line when they are the only members at the field.



It is important that the two airspace's not encroach on one another.

AREA RESTRICTIONS



 
Langrum Branch Church has a sanctuary located south of the field, and maintains a cemetery just outside the entrance to the field to the east.  The club observes a self imposed restriction on Sunday until noon we are electric only.  Out of respect for the church members we also cease all flight operations during any service observed at the cemetery.

The tower located to the north-east is the York County Office of Emergency Management.  This is a 146.3m communications tower which handles many critical county communication functions to include 911 service.  Flying anywhere near this is strictly forbidden.

Due north of the flight line is Lowes Home Improvement.  The club maintains a self imposed overflight ban of this area.

North-west of the flight line is Walmart.  The club maintains a self imposed overflight ban of this area.

West of the flight line is the York County Department of Education school bus depot.  Under the terms of the land use plan with York County, overflight of this area is not allowed.
