Our Airfield & Location

Our GPS coordinates are:

N49°46’57.25″, W97°24’55.59″ (N49.7825, W97.4154)

The WHAM model field is approximately 10 acres of land surrounded by farmland with zero obstructions in all directions. Our field features a 600 foot long Synthetic Runway!

This runway is perfect for the smaller electric aircraft which struggle when taking off from a grass surface. Our field also offers a recently expanded parking area, a spacious pit area surround by safety fencing. Our grass field is constantly groomed by dedicated volunteers which allow our members to to fly in almost any direction.  

The field is located approximately 6.5 km west of Oak Bluff, MB north of Hwy 2. To find us from the Winnipeg area, proceed around the Perimeter Highway to Oak Bluff in the south west corner. Then turn SW onto Highway #3 and go through the town of Oak Bluff. Turn west onto Highway 2 and proceed approximately 6.5 km to Highway 334. Finally, turn north onto highway 334 and WHAM is located approximately 1.5 km on the left.
