The DESS field is located near Farmville, NC, along California road.
The nearest large town is Greenville, NC, about 15 minutes East from the field.
The field is large and open, which is great for large planes and contests. There is plenty of visibility and no hazards such as housing to contend with. There is a power line on the opposite side of California road. The field is short grass and fairly flat so you can fly from any point on the field to suit prevailing winds. The best part of the field is that camping is allowed! So if you are visiting us for a contest or a fun-fly event, you are welcome to camp on the field (no facilities though).
