Photos of the field BBQ taken by member Dave Burritt’s drone.

The LEAF field is located on the south end of Union Reservoir on the east side of Longmont, Colorado, just east of County Line Road 1 and north of Hwy 119. The property is leased from the city of Longmont for the exclusive use of LEAF members.  We fly electric powered micros, park flyers, electric conversions, helicopter, multi and FPV multi-copter, or Gliders/Sailplanes.

Our runway was professionally re-done in 2017 by Nixcavating. We now have a beautiful hard flat surface covered with geotex material and we added an extra 50′. The runway is 360 ft. x 30 ft. with 6 pilot stations and 9 permanent work tables.

LEAF also has a dedicated helicopter and FPV multi-copter race test site located just east of the parking area.  This allows for both airplanes and copter flying at the same time without interference.

We have a covered solar charging station, picnic tables, a portable potty and guest viewing area so feel free to bring along family and friends. 

Battery Charging Stations: LEAF has an improved solar powered charging station that will now support up to twelve (12) battery chargers.  All that is needed is your 12vDC battery charger equipped with either banana plugs or alligator clips.
