A friend of mine will be based in Houston for 3 years, and is looking for a practice field.
Thanks to give me some infos.

There are several to choose. If he ends up on the North-East region, Jetero Field is likely the best option. If in the due North area (known as Woodlands) he might look up Don Ramsey and Tri-County Barnstormers in Conroe. If on the North-West area, there is SpaceCityRC (lots of pattern activity there), as well as Scobee Field (public field - has paved runway with boxlines). I'm sure there are a couple other options I have missed. All fields will require an AMA license.

Houston is a busy area for pattern so he should have no problem finding one of us to help him find the best field.

Hi JP,

Mark listed in his response my RC Club, Space City RC which is located in Katy TX a WNW suburb of Houston. We have 7-8 active pattern flyers and the facility is well suited for pattern practice.

Here's a link to an RCU thread containing info on our 2012 pattern event. [link=http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_11012066/mpage_1/key_/tm.htm]Space City 2012 Spring Pattern Classic[/link]

Here's an aerial video shot by an RC helicopter which showcases the pit area and overfly area. [link=http://youtu.be/fK3J0vHn8e8]Aerial Video[/link]
