Next Launch - September 29, 2018 at St Lucie Fairgrounds

The next launch at Dyer Park will be held Saturday, October 27 from 11:00 am til 5:00 pm at Dyer Park.

FSA Launch Site Location: Dyer Park 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.

Click on the Dyer Park Site Info link at upper left for more information and an aerial photo of the site, which is approximately a one square mile total area.

If the Dyer site is unavailable we will relocate to the LaBelle field. We set up off Wellington Parkway and Sycamore, which is a couple of miles west of TFM's site. It is more open and has easier access  and larger mowed swales for parking.

Tripoli Ft Myer's launch site is located 11 miles east of LaBelle, FL.  Take Highway 80 west from Clewiston about 7 miles to the flyover exit to Labelle. Continue west on SR80 and turn south onto Wellington Parkway. Go to where the pavement ends at Sycamore Road and turn left, we weill set up along the road. 

Club memberships: We have club membership forms available at the field, or click on the "Membership Info" link. Dues are $25/yr for individual/family. Daily flight fee for non-members is $5.
