The next launch at Dyer Park in West Palm Beach is scheduled for Saturday, March 4, noon to 5:00 PM. Bothj entrances are open. Enter the park using the north entrance off Haverhill Road. Follow the road around bearing left, go past the maintenance shop (metal building inside fenced compound) then turn left onto the access road. Go south to the first gravel-road ramp and turn right. The parking area is normally off the left (south) side of the road. Do NOT park on the side access drive. Entering from the south, turn left after passing the hill, where the road forks off. Go to the northmost gravel access ramp, on the left (west) side of the road.
Launches: FSA conducts monthly launches on the last Saturday of each month, except for November & December when the launch is the Saturday preceding Thanksgiving & Christmas. The site does not have an FAA waiver; hi-power motors up to I impulse are allowed as long as the flight does not exceed 1200 ft altitude. There are no facilities on the range; restrooms are available by the ballfields at the north end of the field. Bring shade, water and sunscreen and we recommend wearing closed shoes.
FSA Launch Site Location: Dyer Park is located at 7301 Haverhill Road in West Palm Beach. The south entrance is located at the intersection of Haverhill Road and Dyer Boulevard in West Palm Beach, just south of SR 710 (Beeline Highway). Exit I-95 at Blue Heron Blvd; go west approx 1/4 mile to N. Military Trail, then go south approx 1/4 mile to Dyer Blvd; west about 1/4 mile to the SOUTH park entrance, where it says "Winding Waters Preserve". Continue west along the access road toward the Model Airplane Field past the entrance to Winding Waters. Turn right at the first intersection & follow the service road north; look for our pop-ups on top of the hill to the west of the road.
