I can't seem to find an answer in the forum......so I'll ask the question.........Is the black temp runway we see at the Flight test events a strip(s) of landscaper (anti weed) vinyl??..............Thanks.

Geotex fabric is a lot heaver duty than the weed barrier stuff. It is used in road work, lay it down on bare dirt then pour gravel on top. It keeps the gravel form sinking into the mud. It come in rolls about 20 feet wide. It makes a great runway that will last for several years, the sun will eventually break in down.

Thank you very much for the reply and data. I'll pass it on to the club.
