Secondary Field Auburn Road
The New Hampshire Flying Tiger's Auburn Road flying site has a nice grass runway (located at latitude N 42.931758, longitude W 71.350) which is 275 feet long, and 40 feet wide. A pilot must stand at one of the four pilot stations, each marked by a cement pad, while operating a model at this site. The pilot stations are separated by at least 20 feet to help ensure that transmitter generated 3IM products do not cause problems for RC receivers. Note that we limit the number of aircraft in the air at any one time to four at this flying site at all times.
This image (click on the image to view a Google map of our Auburn Rd site) shows the runway as the smaller green area which is surrounded by the allowed 2,000 ft. x 500 ft. over flight area in a more transparent green. Please note that there are homes in the upper right and upper left corners of this image which must be avoided at all times as they are outside of our flight area.

This is a sensitive flying site which is a former EPA Superfund site that is still under EPA control and therefore it has many special procedures in place especially concerning the handling of any fuel. See our "Auburn Road Site Usage Rules" for details on these special procedures. Refrain from coming in contact with the ground or surface water as the EPA is still monitoring Arsenic levels in the area. Please refer to the EPA web site www.epa.gov/region01/superfund/ for more information on the ‘Auburn Road Landfill’ site.
