Apollo Field  Update

The Field is still open for open flying.

Due to COVID-19, our current agreement with LA Parks states that we can’t host any organized events at the field.  Because of COVID-19, all previously scheduled future events at the field are cancelled/postponed until further notice.

Stay tuned

250 Foot Max Altitude!!

The Club has been getting calls from the Van Nuys Tower. 

There are  people that are flying  over the 250 foot limit! 

There have been reports that our planes are showing up on the Tower’s equipment, and there have been reports filed by pilots as they are taking off out of Van Nuys Airport.

  We need to be vigilant and make sure that everyone stays under our current altitude limit. 

So far, all of us have been doing great at staying below the limit, and we don’t want the FAA to get involved and shut us down.

  So please, if you see someone who is flying high, remind them that they can get the field shut down

for ALL of us.

Thank you.
