CRMRC has two different fields from which we fly:
1. Our Primary field is located off Macquam Shore Road, St. Albans, VT. Lat / Long: 44°49'30.3"N 73°10'18.4"W
We normally launch year round from this 400 acre high power field. This field has a 10,000' FAA waiver and supports motors up to M impulse. If this field becomes inaccessible during some winter months (extremely rare), we will launch at our alternate Sandbar State Park location if Lake Champlain is sufficiently frozen to support our operations.
