Looks like a brand new fbo. Great service. As of mid 2022 itโ€™s pricey but I write this with Jet A at $8 at most places

My favorite small town airport

I have landed here dozens of times to visit the in-laws. The first time was at night! It's a local family that owns it and offers good fuel prices. Tie down near the road or ask if there's hangar space. The paved strip is narrow, but there's lots of grass around it to use if necessary.

Well run and spacious airport

We landed here from Newark NY USA (KEWR) on United AL. Customs was friendly and easy. Take the rental car bus from terminal to the rental car lots. Don't walk or follow signs. Get off at one of five stops, depending on your reservation. Be ready for a long list of expensive car insurance choices.

A wonderful airport for observing aircraft

I base my Grumman Tiger here. The FBO Journey's Aviation is very helpful. There is a place to sit to watch the many aircraft that land and takeoff, including gliders, singles, a few twins, both piston and small jets. There are even occasional parachute jumpers! The fenced in area in front of parking has a mock runway. EAA Chapter 1627 provides Young Eagle flights on spring and summer Saturdays, but sign up in advance at https://www.eaa.org/eaa/youth/free-ye-flights/become-a-young-eagle .

Not operational

It's still there with lots of construction equipment on the west end. Apparently it's not operational since 2011. No aircraft seeable.

re: The Chileka Club

Maria, this is a very long shot as you left your blog a long time ago, but here goes...my name is Amit Som and I went to school with you in St Andrews in 1975. I would be so happy if you could make contact at asom62@yahoo.co.uk. I have a school photo dating from 1975 that has you in it, I remember you with great fondness and hope you get in touch, or some kind soul puts us in touch. All the best, Amit Som St Andrews Blantyre 1975. ps. I have just met our art teacher John Harris here in England! Fond memories of HE The Life President going by in his motorcade and waiting hours for him...great fun. Please get in touch Maria.

THIS IS CHHINDWARA AIRSTRIP

Beautiful scenery

The aerodrome is abandoned, but the runway is still in excelent condition.

It has an upslope west to east.

Picture of PapaOscar

Expensive

Landing fees are around โ‚ฌ12,50 per ton.

However, there is a nice restaurant within walking distance from the airfield.

Picture of PapaOscar

Very narrow

The dirt runway has become unusable.

On the east there is quite a big hill, so a straight in is difficult.

The runway is rather narrow, with trees and bushes not far from the runway edge.

Picture of PapaOscar

Obstacle Course

The runway has a huge upslope east to west. The west end of the runway is full of antennas with supporting wires reaching all the way to the runway edge. On the aproach end it is full of windmills so a continuous turn from base to the treshold has to be made.

you can expect one one helicopter a day and usually come in later on into the after noon if not sometimes after dark. The most common aircraft here would be a AW139 (either RACQ or Lifeflight). I have to warn people who wish to watch or even video/photograph anything. It is government and is an active hospital. meaning they will be transporting a patient. If you have the courage to ask security to make sure that they are okay with you being there because usually i have no trouble with the security there but i have been questioned before but that's usually jus to make sure i am not recording anything that may include crew or that patient being transported.

re: I Took My Instrument Checkride With Jean

Hello, I came across this website today trying to find out what happened to Rose Aviation at Hawthorne Airport and saw your post. My name is Linda Silvertooth, I am the Linda you mentioned in your post. I worked at Rose from 1977-1981 and have kept in touch with several other friends from those days (Kathy Hesse, Kevin Clover). I knew Jean as the former owner and and as an FAA Pilot Examiner, Art was the owner at the time I was there. Jean passed away in the early 80โ€™s and Art passed away in 2018. I know Claude is gone also but I donโ€™t remember when he passed. I took several check rides from both Jean and Claudeโ€ฆ..great people!! I saw Don Pedersen in 2013 at a Rose reunion, he was the Chief of Police for Culver City at that time, but I think he has retired. Were you at Rose Aviation during those years? I went on to work for the FAA for over 35 years and retired in 2020. It was a great time during those days at Rose! Linda

Runway Cafe

I've never seen an airport diner that served pad thai before. Or mariscos. On the same menu as your classic burgers and steaks, and all excellent!
