WesMar (16067 LONDON RD. ORIENT, OH. 43146-9516) is the operations field for Wings to Fly hang gliding school and the Central Ohio Dragon Fly Club. While these are mostly weekend operation, special circumstances may be made to tow during the weekdays as tug operators are available. Good XC potential to in all directions. Columbus Ohio is approx 19 miles to the north-northeast. There are several Airports to remain clear of to the north and northeast, be sure to speak with a local to find out what to avoid.
Named after the land owners Wes Jones and Marty Brown.
Grass runway heading SW and NE. Mostly flat land, but the hills of eastern Ohio can be reached with a decent cross country flight. Open area on the SW end of the runway allows launching in nearly all directions. Tree and power line surround the field. Care must be taken to avoid these obstacles and any rotors that can be associated with the obstacles.
Private property. HG and PG pilots welcome.
