The Blacksheep Squadron is one of the largest clubs in Central Indiana.
One visit to their club and you can see why. Really nice park-like facilities,
awesome club house and and a fun attitude towards events and all things
aeronautical. Danville is west of Indianapolis out US 36.
Beautiful paved runway and very nice shelter. Located behind the former Indiana Boys School. A skilled group of flyers who offer fun events during the year. Plainfield is southwest of Indianapolis. You can get to the field going out US 40. Flashers on when you enter the prison area.
This club used to fly right next to the Colts Complex off 56th Street. Today, they have a great location up next to Terry Airport on SR 32 north northwest of Indianapolis. I've only flown there once, but I was greeted warmly and really enjoyed the club members.

The Johnson County Radio Control club flies out of Tracee Field in Johnson County Park, across from Camp Atterbury, Edinburgh, Indiana. Their site is one of just a few in the area that offers a "hard surface" runway, 570'x40' blacktop or if you prefer grass a 700'x50' runway. Many of their members are also members of other area clubs including Indy area clubs. Great website at www.jcrcf.net
