Our "Area 52" Flying Field in Pasco County features two 750 foot runways, oriented North-South and East-West.
There are two 100 foot long covered Pilot Shelters, with ceiling fans and electrical power outlets. A large covered
Pavillion area with ceiling fans and a cold water fountain is adjacent to our kitchen/pilot room trailer. Our well provides
water to our sprinkler system.
Driving Directions : Entrance
gate to the field is located at 22500 State Road 52. The gate is on the south side of the highway, about 6.8 miles
west of I-75 Exit 285, and 4.1 miles east of US Highway 41. Enter through the gate, and please ensure that the gate
is locked behind you. Proceed up the dirt road and turn right on the road into the parking lot behind the Pavillion
and Pilot Shelters.
When driving in and out of the field, please observe the 15
MPH speed limit - excessive speeds will tear up our road, and we'll have no way into the field during the wet season.
Our flying field is on Southwest Florida Water Management District land, so it is very important that all rules be
followed in order that we are able to renew our lease.
When entering or leaving the flying field always
close the gate and lock the combination lock. Remember to roll all the lock tumblers.
All members and guests must follow
the rules posted at the main gate and at the pavilions. Please read and understand them. Obeying
these rules will safeguard the privilege of flying at this field.
