There are a couple of clubs fairly close to me with runways but we actually fly at a sod farm most of the time, so our runway is roughly 1/2 a mile square That plane has roughly a 2 to 1 thrust to weight ratio so it would take off vertically if you wanted to. I could comfortably fly a plane that size in an area not much bigger than a football field, room isn't so much a problem as noise is. Living out in the middle of nowhere like I do has its advantages when it comes to making the neighbors mad with noise. sod farm by Hance1976, on Flickr
