History of Our Club
Our club was started over 30 yrs ago and has had various flying sites over the years. We have had the current field since 1996 and have been working on improving it a little at a time. By far the biggest improvement was when we put in the paved runway. The club membership includes local flyers plus many winter visitors who enjoy the usually great year-round flying weather.
Our Club is now re-named to: Contreras Field, home of the Yuma Aeromodelers.
Our field has a paved runway approx 600 X 60. Shaded pits for morning and afternoon flying. Hyw 95 and Rifle Range Road. Located at N32d 42' 27.59" by W114d 25' 27.59"
