About Suhaka Field
Both electric and gas/glow aircraft are flown at
Suhaka Field. Beginners are always welcome, and instructor pilots are available for flight training at no additional charge.
Suhaka Field is operated by the
Denver R/C Eagles Flying Club, a group of about 115 members.
You do not need to be a member of the Club to fly at the facility, however you do need to follow all the club rules, including the requirement that all pilots display a current
Academy of Model Aeronautics membership.
Club activities cover nearly every phase of R/C aircraft building and flying, and include access to special club events. Club members have diverse interests in scale war birds, aerobatics, helicopters, quad copters, and ducted fan jets.
