Deleo Field

Click Here For -> Local weather conditions

The field is located in a small canyon and is basically surrounded by hills. The runway and covered areas are paved. The runway runs generally southeast to northwest, and is just a hair over 500 feet. The runway is 50 feet wide.Winds are usually non-existent during the morning hours; light enough to fly small foamies. Winds tend to gradually increase during the morning and enter the field from the northwest and northeast; that is, you're usually facing into the wind, and it is blowing slightly from the left or right. It wouldn't be a bad idea to practice a bit on a simulator if you're new to landing on a runway.Pilots are encouraged to fly in a clockwise pattern, and may be asked to avoid the motocross bikers that practice at the track just west of the field. The general pattern looks like this:

Flyers are reminded that for safety, no maneuvers are to be performed closer than the centerline, marked in red here.

 

There is plenty of room to fly, although many have tested high-school physics by comparing the effects of fluid dynamics with rocky hillside dynamics. Google Earth (R) was used to calculate the below distances (all in feet), as measured from center runway..
