Bay Area California Flying Sites
There are plenty of sites, I will add them as I have time. I know that there are many I don't know about or have no information on, if you know of a site, or want to add information please email me so I can add it.
Also, pictures can be handy.
Baylands Park - Sunnyvale
Type of Flying: This is a great place to fly just about anything except GAS, relaxed rules, good community, and probably one of the busiest flying fields with plenty of people ready to assist if needed.
Rancho San Antonio Park
Type of Flying: Multi-use park, with flying of electric model aircraft. No nitro/gas. Flying allowed, but you must me mindful of hikers and other park visitors, as the field is at the top of a hill, and people walk across the flying area, without paying attention to the model aircraft, so a spotter is definitely recommended while flying. (Description may not be up to day.)
Directions: Hammond-Snyder Loop Trail, Cupertino, CA 95014
PCC - Half Moon Bay
Type of Flying: Fixed Wing, Heli, Glider. AMA - Club
If you are interested in flying radio-controlled airplanes, helicopters or gliders, then the Peninsula Channel Commanders (PCC) would like to invite you to get acquainted with our club.

For driving instructions and a detailed map.We are a relaxed club and we are concerned mainly with having FUN!

Foster City - "Shells Park"
Type of Flying: Multi Use area, no Nitro.
This is a public site with a small rough landing strip. Electric only, no nitro allowed, cannot fly across the road (must stay on this side of Beach Park Blvd). There often are a few nice RC pilots on weekend mornings, before it gets windy. Afternoons are usually too windy to fly.
Note: When you look on Google maps, you have to park away from the site, but there is a path leading to it.
Note: 2 looking about 1/4 mile south is Shells BMX track, a wonderfull place to run R/C cars including large jumps, bowls and circles.
Fort Funston - San Francisco
Type of Flying: Multi Use, (I believe though, no Nitro?)
RC aircraft are allowed to fly here. The only restriction that I know of is that RC planes are not to fly when hang gliders are in the air. Good for slope soaring.

Open area, people fly off the parking lot over the open field. RC ground vehicles have open dirt area to play
