Due to unforeseen issues with the transfer of the lake and surrounding properties to OC Parks, James Events temporarily lost access to the flats. All parties are working diligently to restore access to the flats for parking.
Other scheduled events that will impact open flying for 2016. This is the proposed list of events that will impact flying and will likely change once access to the flats for parking is restored. This list will be kept current and available from the link on the right side of this page.
OCMA BOD apologizes for the late notice and inconvenience, please understand it is due to matters beyond our control.
Meanwhile we are diligently working to acquire a long term agreement with OC Parks for use of the field as well as significant improvements to the flying site.
