NightHawk Park Flying is held in the gigantic White Pines Golf Dome -- not a school gymnasium! The dome is 300 feet wide by 300 feet deep and ten stories tall!
You can fly micro, mini and Park Pilot sized airplanes, multirotors, and helicopters. No matter if you are brand new to the hobby or a seasoned flyboy, the dome is the right place for you to fly!
Pilots must be members of the AMA to fly. Any license level is acceptable. Student pilots may fly without an AMA license if they are under the guidance of a licensed pilot and connected with a "buddy box" hookup.
Flight Instruction for new pilots is a key to our hobby, so feel free to contact our flight instruction coordinator to arrange for training time or to answer questions. We can help you set up your own aircraft, or you can train on our NightHawk training airplane and "Buddy Box" radios.
We use the AMA's Park Pilot flying rules*. Our emphasis on safety includes a 450 motor (roughly 150 watts) maximum, 28" diameter helicopter rotor maximum and two pound weight limit. But, safety also relies on the concept of respect and avoidance of all dome employees, pilots and spectators. We need your cooperation to keep flying!
NightHawk flying at White Pines is on most Friday and Saturday nights between 9:00 PM and 11:00 PM. The cost to fly is $10 per night.

* NOTE: Safety rules regarding multirotor models is under rapid alteration. Be sure to check the AMA site frequently to keep up to date.
