Spread the playa dust

An interesting set up in the middle of the playa for the Burning Man event. Two runways were in place for 2016, one used for landing, one for take off. Be careful when taxiing - since the playa dust gets sent everywhere! Had fun landing a C310 here!

GOODBYE SMITH (2011)

This was a small airport with a 1900 foot runway that served farms just outside of Dulles, VA. The Smith family sold the land back in 2007/2008 and it is now part of a subdivision that sits across from John Champe High School.

QUESTION

Is the public allowed to land and take off here?

Picture of

Active and friendly

One of the most active and welcoming small GA airports you'll find. Take one of the multiple courtesy cars for lunch or to the nearby beach. Two extremely good maintenance shops, avionics shop, helicopter and fixed wing flight schools, skydiving, Hertz onsite, even a real estate broker and a bait and tackle shop onsite! "How can we make your day better?" Is more than a slogan!

Dear Mr Sanders,

Can you please provide essential details of making a gyroport. We have no regulations for Gyroplanes in our country India. Could you please provide us with details of designing and constructing one for my personal use/ for public use.

Thanking You

Hotel Rooms, Update

There are 40 hotels in town. I landed at 10pm and because of the boom-bust oil business cycle had no problem getting a room on the top floor. But, something you wouldn't know from a night at the airport, the oil trains go through town every two hours. All through the night. And they are required by federal law to blow their whistle at every on grade crossing. Not a good night of sleep.

Miami American Airlines is chaotic, unrestful and not worth

International flights from the Caribbean should be short, sweet and relaxing. Instead American Airlines subscribes to the notion of long, bitter and anxious. Coming back from the Caribbean is a nightmare. This has been going on for years, at least two. They make you walk from the airplane the entire length of the airport to make a line and imprint your passport in the new machines. Then they take a picture. After this line where no one really knows where exactly to go, one has to go to another snaky line where they check the passport again and the picture. This second time is an unfriendly foreigner asking nonsensical questions. Why they couldn't put the machines next to the man asking the questions so one only has to make one line is beyond me. Then they make you pick your luggage, yes they don't have the decency to transport it to your connecting flight. Then you make another line to put your luggage through a conveyor. They don't tell you at this time to put any liquids you purchased in the airport into your luggage so later they will confiscate it. Then you move for another half length of the airport to another more lengthy, more snaky line where they check your carry-ons and any liquids you bought at the airport even with receipt bags and the like the confiscate or you have to re-check for another 25 dollars. This is done by a zealot observer who even the bag checkers make comments on how unreasonable his pulling of certain bags are. Then if you have a connecting flight you must go back through the tram to your gate which usually is gate 60 where they huddle everyone into a packed noisy, hardly-beveraged area until 9:30pm and at 9:30pm they start boarding around 10-15 flights all at once. Then one has to hurry to walk to the tarmac through this outside corridor and go up stairs or a bus to you plane. Miami and American Airlines is a bad combination. It has been so for a while and the organizer of this deal is either a novice or needs different skills.

Seating and charging outlets

Why isn't there more seating in C concourse? 2 hour layover, no available charging ports and very little seating. Kind of awful for one of the largest hub airports in North America.

BarK, Rusry Alken, Lago Vista

Many of trips ferrying airplanes for repairs at Lakeview Aviation. Good airport for flying around the lake but watch out for those tricky winds and lots of deer around.

Georgetown

Despite it's beautiful name I always feel like an outsider when I land here.

This was a really narrow short runway in the old days. Wondered sometimes if we were going to make it over the power lines on those hot summer days

Watch out for unadvertised & outrageous "after hours" fee.

I arrived at 6pm for a Saturday soccer match at Gillette stadium and was shocked to learn that they wanted me to pay $157.50 because I was departing after 8pm. Next time I will go to Mansfield, MA.

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!
