The AMPS flying site has an asphalt runway that is 600 long and 75 wide. The west-end of the runway has an additional 110 of turf over run area for airplanes that fail to stop on the asphalt. The runway is also bordered by a 30 wide strip of turf on the north and east sides as well. At the east-end of the asphalt runway we have a 105 diameter circle for control line model airplane flying. The asphalt paved pit area is on the south side of the runway and is 250 long and 35 wide. Concrete parking blocks and a two-foot high safety barrier fence separate the pit area from the runway. Five flight stations are located along the barrier fence with openings between the pit and the runway. This allows up to five airplanes in the air at any time.
