Come fly with us at Poplar Ford Field!
We have a great grass runway with clear approaches, flight stands at the pilot stations, charging hookups (just bring alligator clips for free 12v) and a pavilion for some shade. Come by on most any sunny day to visit – and as long as you have an active AMA card and your plane with you, join a member for a flight or two! If you don’t have a plane yet, come on by and say hi anyway – if one of our field trainers are there we’ll get you up in the air!
Unless closed by NOTAM or county maintenance operations, the field is open for electric flying 7 days a week from 8:30am to dusk. Wet fuel engines that meet the sound requirements (see detailed field rules) are welcome from 9am to dusk.

To reach the flying area, go through the entrance area (now with gate – combination on membership card) and follow the main trail for perhaps 500 yards, then follow the turn to the right and go another 500, or so, yards.
Horse Riders on the Field Access Road
If you encounter a horse back rider on any part of the road to or from the field, you must do the following:
*Wait for the horse rider to pass OR to wave you on to pass
*If the horse rider waves you on to pass and move forward, do so slowly and on the side of the road
If for some reason you are unclear how to proceed, get out of your car and speak directly to the horse rider for instructions on how to proceed safely.
Be careful when exiting the field where the new and old road intersect. You should always have a speed of no more than 10mph when traveling up and down the road.
