Wow.. that's pretty cool. Handy if your airplane uses mogas ;)

Reply to @bcrosby: I haven't tried Herb's yet (not sure about permissions and runway length), but it seems that there are now two easy fast-food stops in the area -- this service centre, with its own runway, and Les C├Ędres Airport (CSS3 -- "Cedars" to anglophone pilots) a bit to the south, which has a truck stop right across the highway from the airport last I was there.

I have landed on the grass strip at Herb's on numerous occasions. The grass strip is about 500' long, with the Hwy. 34 overpass as an obstacle to the west.

The paved strip has cars and trailers parked approximately half way down the runway. They are parked there to prevent any mishaps between the incoming car / truck traffic and landing / departing airplanes.

Owners are friendly, good food, friendly staff!

BTW, I fly a Challenger II Ultralight.

Do not attempt unless you're absolutely sure you can safely get in and out of the grass strip.
