The Flying Sites

Flying Time!

Most AAGMC members prefer to be in the air.  Weather permitting, you'll find them at their field in Litchfield, Ohio, at another Club's Fun Fly or Event or doing something aviation oriented.  When the weather is not so kind, you'll find them taking refuge in "The Hanger" or, during the chilling winter months at "The Dome ".

  • Edgewater Slopes - You'll find great soaring when the wind is out of the north or north east.  The rules are simple but must be strictly adhered to.  This is a state park and no engines or motors are allowed.  There is a jogging path at the bottom of the slope so be careful of the people.  We certainly donít want any complaints.  The state just redid part of the hill so we now have about 500 feet of space.  To find the Edgewater Slopes from anywhere, please see maps.

    The Club contacts regarding the Edgewater Slopes are Don King,  Marv King and Mike Gantner.
  • Litchfield  Field - You'll marvel at our absolutely fabulous flying site located in Litchfield, Ohio.  It boasts a 75' X 700' grass runway and plenty of open airspace for the giant-scale boys to romp 'n play.  AAGMC is comprised of members with a  wide variety of interests.  Thus, unless it's a contest day we're hosting, you never know what you'll find at "The Field" poking through the clouds.  We have an active group of modelers and flyers and welcome new member inquiries.  To find our Litchfield Flying Field location from anywhere, please see maps.
  • Malvern Slopes -  We have a nice site which includes an "invigorating hike" to the top of the slop.  You can have a great time soaring and get your exercise all in one outing.  This slope works best with a mostly southerly wind.  The slope we fly on is located within a working farm, so upon entering the premises please take care to NOT LET THE COWS out (CLOSE THE GATE BEHIND YOURSELF).    The rules are simple.  Rule #1:  Donít leave trash behind.  Take it all home with you, including any broken planes.  Rule #2:  No motor vehicles allowed at  the slope.  Rule #2: Don't let the cows out (especially the ones with horns).   Rule #3: Have fun!  To find the Malvern Slopes from anywhere, please see maps.

    The Club contacts regarding the Malvern Slopes are Don King,  Marv King and Mike Gantner.
  • Valley View Indoor - We keep 'em flying all winter long at The Dome in Valley View.  AAGMC has a fairly active contingent that flies year around.  In warm weather you'll find them at "The Field" competing in the bi-weekly glider contest.  Not willing to be grounded, you'll find many at "The Dome" during the bone-chilling months in Northeast Ohio.  To find The Dome in Valley View from anywhere, please see maps.
  • Electric Competition - AAGMC holds a seasonal bi-weekly contest for electric fixed wing aircraft at the the Litchfield Flying Field.  Schedule, contest rules and scoring are available here.
