I've been flying small planes (park flyers) for years in the Rosewood Business park just off E. Williams St using the street as the runway as the grass gets pretty tall. It's a dead end, paved street with large fields. Now I've found that the new Sugg Park which is past Womble park at the end of Grigsby Rd is even better. It's owned by the town and has huge open fields. Not sure about Gas planes but small electric hopefully are ok. It's like the space at Dorothea Dix Hospital but close by if you live in S. Wake.

Why not go to a local hobby store and ask about local AMA licensed clubs and where they meet. I know there is a big one down at the Johnson County airport. I had belonged to one but that is in North Raleigh almost to Knightdale.

Good point for those that want to fly larger planes with a club and the benefits that the AMA affords. But - if you want to throw one in the car and drive nearby to fly for an hour - this is a great spot as is the Dix property, etc. Personally it's not an all day activity for me and for the park flyer planes, there are many options. And the more available areas like this and the small, inexpensive planes will encourage kids to fly and that leads to expansion of the hobby. I see so many 'starters' at these little parks and fields yet virtually none at the club sites. Have fun!
