AIRPLANE AND HELO FLYING FIELDS
Proposed New Field Site at the Valley Center Decommissioned Land Fill
Valley Center Landfill
Aerie Rd; 1.6 Mi W Valley Center Rd
Valley Center, CA 92082
CURRENT FIELD LOCATION
Johnson Field is located on about 85 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. View video here.
We have been flying at our current location since 1997. We are seeking additional flying locations for our club members due to the rapid development of housing and a Community College in close proximity to our field. We will be losing our flying site in a few months because of this development so if you know of some open land that might be suitable in the North San Diego County area, we want to hear about it!
