It takes me 25-30 mins to get to our field. Although I have 2 other clubs within 5 mins (10 if you count lights), and a further 3 more clubs within 15 mins.
It wasn't a crash it was deconstruction for improving

10 minutes or so from my Brampton home to the Bramalea field.

25 minutes from my Prince Edward County home to the Picton Airport (pavement) or 30 minutes to the grass field. Alternately, I walk one minute down the hill to the lake to fly off the ice (when it's solid enough).

Looking into the Bay of Quinte Aeromodellers, their grass field is only about 15 minutes from the PEC home.

I really don't cae to drive much more than i5 minutes. I guess I have gotten spoiled/lazy in my old age.

If I trusted my eyes enough I could take off from my driveway and land on the airstrip. Sure beats having to carry it

To get to our current field we have a drive about 20 mins from town. Not bad at all.
We are looking for a a new field and would like to keep it around 30 mins or less.

Just wondering what everyone drive to get to their flying fields?

It takes me 25 minutes from door to parking lot . If traffic is really good and I hit all green lights I can do it in 20 minutes. No too bad.
