The Longmont Electric Aircraft Flyers of Longmont, Colorado was founded in 2003 by hobbyists in the community wanting a safe and legal place to fly. By leasing several acres of land from the city, LEAF opened its doors and have been growing ever since. With more than 100 members, LEAF is known for their friendly and open environment to visitors; welcoming all who visit the club field. New members are welcomed and encouraged to grow at their own pace, and there is always someone around to answer a question or help fix an aircraft, whether it be an EDF jet, glider, 3D sport plane or FPV quadcopter, all electric disciplines are welcome. LEAF has been an AMA Gold Leader club for many years. They hold monthly introductory flight events for the public to learn about the hobby, as well as buddy box on trainer aircraft. They also raise thousands of dollars every year for local charities thanks to their many fun fly events.
