Marymoor Park Model Airfield
The model airfield is located in the northeast corner of Marymoor Park. It is an officially approved FRIA (FAA Recognized Identification Area). As a FAA FRIA, model aircraft are not required to have remote ID modules installed in the aircraft when flown within our boundaries and operated following the club and AMA safety protocols..
The field has a 120' x 380' grass runway and a usable airspace of approximately 600' x 1800'. A large grass area containing picnic tables and bleachers is provided for spectators. The airfield is managed and maintained by the Marymoor R/C Club through an agreement with the King County Parks Division.

It was windy when the images were collected, so some of the areas are a little blurry. The image is made up of 822 photos captured by a drone autonomously flying and recording images, that were then stitched together into one image. Click here to see the airfield on Google Earth.
Airfield Flying Area
The Marymoor Flying Field (Airfield) diagram below shows the Runway, Flying Area and boundary markers to help orient pilots during flight. The image is shown looking south, which is the view that a pilot will have from the pilot stations along the northerly edge of the runway. To the left and right, pilots will see a sign displaying red and white triangles. These two signs define the safety line which is the northerly edge of the permitted Flying Area. All flying must take place in front of (south of) this line (per AMA Safety Code). To the far left and right, pilots will see large banners displaying a black and white airplane silhouette. These identify the east and west ends of the Flying Area and assist with judging distance (see scale diagram below, posted at each pilot station).
To assure the safe and orderly operation of the Airfield, It is important that all flyers understand and comply with the Airfield Operating Rules, and the AMA Safety Code. Everyone inside the fence shall comply with the general Safety Rules. Park rules apply to everyone. See Rules tab.
