The Huntsville School Board  has granted us a contract (written permission) to fly on the parking lot on a not to interfere basis 7 days a week. They painted three 90 foot diameter circles for us. Since then, the lot has been resurfaced, light standards installed that still give us 100 feet clearance and three new gates installed. We go to the school security building and sign for the keys, one of which for the men's room.  H^^

As Ty has stated Huntsville control-line flyer's (NACA North Alabama Control-line Association) now have a very nice paved flying sight.  We held our first flying session yesterday morning (April 1, 2013). Ty has the honer of putting in the first official flight on the field.  Attached are some field photos and the club presdent Tom Smiley sighing the contract (Ton is on the right).

The problem with electric is that once you get the smoke generator and sound system installed, the plane is too heavy.
