Default Another Lost Flying Field

The members of MVRC (Minnesota Valley RC) just received notice that our landlord will not be renewing our lease, as of Nov 30, 2011.
This is the second major flying site lost this year in the Minneapolis St Paul south metro area.

Do you why the landlord took this action?

Until clubs start buying their land they will continue to face the probability of losing their fields when the land owners find more profitable uses for them. Yes, a lease is cheaper but it is also transient.

He sold the land to someone that is going to build.
We were there about 20 years, with 3 different owners.
We always had enough money to buy land, but very little available in this area.

Here in southern California with land costs what they are (even now) buying land is simply not possible.

All you need is someone to move in next to your property and start complaining, You are shut down. Owning you property does not mean a thing unless you can buy fly over property and some one will build or move in and [:@]
Airports and flying sights are like MAGNET's

We are looking for 9-12 acres to develop to runway, roads, parking, etc. We also need a fly over easement of approximately a 40 acre .
We also need a conditional use permit from the township the flying site would be in.
