New future for B19

Currently the City of Biddeford is supporting the airport because they understand how much of an asset the airport is not only to the city but also to many local businesses. They are currently working on projects involving clearing the trees at both ends of the runway so that the approaches will be cleared according to FAA standards and there is speculation of redoing the runway in approx. 3-4 years after the tree clearing projects have been completed. With a little time and support from the city, this airport will probably become a destination most pilots will be visiting I the future. They are off to a great start and with the airport under new management I can see great things happening here within the near future.

Let me try this once again.....My brother Carlyle (Kurt) Schroeder flew in and out of here once from Indianapolis, IN. He loved to fly his plane. Unfortunately he died of a massive heart attack. I am just glad it was not when he was flying his plane. He died at work very early in the morning. He was an Architect in Indiana. But we had grown up in the area. Played golf at Silver Lake Country Club. Fished on Silver Lake with our families when we were young.

Avoid RWY 3/21

RWY 3/21 surface in poor condition. Landed RWY 26 (which is in good condition) and rather than exit on RWY 21 to access the parallel taxiway, we back-taxied on RWY 08 and exited midfield on the taxiway.

well-kept airport and friendly personnel.

When we arrived, they were in the middle of a community work day, maintaining the grounds. Since they had extra food, they offered to share with us. Didn't have time, but the offer was quite generous!

re: Shuttle/Taxi/Limo Ground Transportation

On 4/14/16 I caught the yellow cab vehicle #494. I informed the driver that I come here often for work. Please do not try to scam me. That is the history of yellow cab and my experience at this airport. What usually cost me $50. Was already close to $70 and we still were not there. I went on the north side where all you have to do is get on the freeway and it takes me straight to my job. Usually get there in 20 to 25 minutes. He did all this extra driving around the entire airport. He went through the mountain which I have never been through in over a year that I have been coming here. This guy is a rip off. I did not allow him to rip me off. But I am sure he has done it to other. I called discount cab to return to the airport. It was a pleasant trip. I feel we should have a selection on which cab we want to use. Yellow cab drivers are a rip off. I will never get in his cab again.

Excellent airport!

This is a great regional airport. Great views. Wide open airfield with great visibility. On field VOR and TWR. FBO (Colgan Air Services [http://colgan-air.com/]) is great to work with and has very good instructors with ground and flight school.

Amazing Airport

If every airport was like this one, I wouldn't complain. Quiet, gorgeous, easy to get through.

Better get it right

It's kind of short and narrow. The trees on the east end can be a bit unnerving for a low time pilot.

Airport Restaurant

Ocala is a great field to fly into with always friendly service. It has an not-so-busy ILS so instrument ops are great to practice here. The Airport restaurant is great and there is no landing fee. Simply taxi up and get some great food!

Restaurant!

The airport restaurant is great at KLAL. The food portions are more than enough for you to eat and have some to stash in the baggage compartment! The service and food is excellent and there are headsets at each table to listen on freq. while over-watching the field. Great option to fly into!

Caution: Restaurant hours are odd so double check before you fly in!

HiJackers!!

HiJackers is my all time favorite place to fly and get food. Its about an hour from anywhere in Central Florida. The shrimp burger and Coconut shrimp are better than 5 star quality and the view of the pattern in addition to great service make this a must go for your flight plan! Also, the tower is a plus at KFIN, controllers are very professional and helpful. Great Destination airport!

Lunch Buffet

Seriously some of the best home cooking, all you can eat food around. Even more so at a nice airport with great service. $8 all you can eat; what could be better! Great GA 100 dollar "hamburger" flight!

Great Saturday Pancake Breakfast!!!

Went to the monthly pancake breakfast at Modesto. It's on the second Saturday of every month. Some aircraft are on display so families can check out the planes after the breakfast. 6 bucks for a lot of good food. Not a bad deal at all. Controllers are also some of the friendliest I've ever heard, made me feel welcome!

Will be back!

re: Raytheon Heliport does not exist

The FAA still shows the heliport as active. They also show the location as "Estimated", so it's likely to be in those office buildings nearby. But this wouldn't be the first time nobody bothered to notify them when a private airport/heliport went away.

Raytheon Heliport does not exist

Raytheon no longer has offices nearby, and in any case, the location given for this heliport is a residential neighborhood.

IATA code confirmation please?

I just added the IATA code ESP to this airport, and I'm not 100% sure. IATA code lookup shows ESP assigned to "Birchwood-Pocono" in East Stroudsburg, which has been closed since 1996: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birchwood-Pocono_Airpark) However, a few non-authoritative sources have ESP assigned to this airport (do a Google search for "N53 ESP"). Can anybody please confirm this change?
