Flying Field

We have a 600'x40' asphalt runway, four separate helicopter pads, a pit area with tables and chairs, toilet facilities, plenty of parking, and an RV parking area (no facilities).

Johnson Field is located on about 70 acres on the Northeast corner of the intersection of I-15 and State Highway 76. We are about 16 miles North of Escondido on I-15. From I-15, take Highway 76 East towards Pala less than 1/2 mile and turn North on Pankey Rd. Enter the Palomar Flying site through the green gate. On weekdays, members must have a key to unlock the gate. The gate is open on weekends and holidays from about 8am to 1pm or when events are scheduled. The public is welcome to come and visit us during those hours. If you are interested in joining, come out anytime – mornings are the most active period. We have separate flying sites on the property devoted to RC airplanes and RC helicopters.

Discount Hobby is still open for ordering and drive up pickups!

We are looking for a new Field

Do you own a parcel of land 25 acres or more that is troubled by unauthorized use?

We are Palomar RC Flyers (established 1955). Our model aircraft club, working with you on your land, helps discourage vagrants, camps, drug labs, and what would be otherwise uncontrolled behavior, increased liability, and high insurance cost on your property. In return for a place to practice our peaceful, safe hobby, we grant you peace of mind.
