DAY USE ONLY

No ARCAL.

Divot on RWY 12. Recommend taxiing past before take off to avoid being bounced prematurely airborne. Doesn’t appear to be NOTAM’d.

AVGAS available from Summit Fuel on Apron 2. Currently $2.63/L. Park in a space, walk inside to the flight school’s dispatch desk and speak to a dispatcher about receiving fuel. They’ll send the truck.

After the great fire

I recently flew in and the damage done was so hard to see, almost everything was lost. Some buildings remain and some houses.

Should be large_airport

I don't know enough about how the categories are defined to feel confident changing it myself but if an airport like KCMA (Wikipedia: Camarillo_Airport) is considered "large" it seems almost absurd to not consider this one large as well

I read all the moaning , it's a pity JFK didn't land here instead of "Love Field"

More aviation history about to be "redeveleoped"

This airport closed in November 2022 and is slated to be turned into a residential development. What a waste.

Future Chennault Field

This is the original 1970s crop dusting airport whose footprint would later be reused as the basis for 2020s Chennault Field.

I flew in here in about 1994 doing a CAP border recce. I have to say it was the scariest thing I'd ever been a part of in civil aviation. The PIC "Dave" had been there multiple times before. The brush along the sides of the runway was so high that a low wing plane would not have been able to land there. They said it was 30 feet wide,but it was more like 10-15 feet wide. We landed to the NW, uphill. After landing we taxied back and shut down. The treat about this place was that the owner had a one table "restaurant" at the bottom. He came out and fixed us lunch.The owner apparently used to work as a geologist right across the border.

The takeoff was rather interesting. It took almost full power to taxi up to the top of the hill. We prepped for a SE departure, Short Field flaps (C-172/180hp) held the brakes, full power. The upper portion of the runway (RY11 I think) was flat, with what seemed like a precipitous drop off after about 500'. The C172 basically just flew off the edge and kept flying. A sharp left to stay inside US airspace and we were off!

I never went back, but I will also never forget it. All the rest of the airports we landed at that trip were easy in comparison.

Im sorry to see it closed, now with 4000 more hours than I had then (150 hours then) I'd definitely try it again.The food was pretty good too.

Built a home and hangar on the runway 12 years ago.

Active aviation community. Fun and friendly place to live

Picture of wolfgangx

kinda sketchy

this is the only airport I've been to where the runway was separated from the road with traffic cones

Lights

A few of the runway lights are out. Reported to the airport manager on 10/6/23 and they will be working to fix them.

Famous but not famous

Conejo Valley Airport, also known as Janss Airport,[1] was an airport in Thousand Oaks, California. It had a 2,600 foot runway and was located adjacent to Thousand Oaks Boulevard. The airport opened in 1926, but was relocated in the early 1960s. The new airport, known as Rancho Conejo Airport, was established on the north side of State Highway 101. Various movies were filmed at Conejo Valley Airport, including The Paleface (1948), Riders of the Whistling Pines (1949),[2] and Overland Stage Raiders (1938).[3] Rancho Conejo Airport appeared in the film It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963).[4][5]

re: Baja trip

I was there a long time ago. I'm pretty sure they had fuel. May want to call and see. I don't know if it was an airport of entry as I went through San Felipe at that time. We went in February. I'm not sure if they are there with babies in October. We got to pet them though and it was a really great experience.

re: Baja trip

Reply to @Cpfau182: Planning to fly in here in October from San Diego for whale watching. Is there definitely fuel there? Also, is this an airport of entry or will I need to stop in Ensenada on the way down?

re: Education in very important

explain well because I personally didn't understand shit I'm Italian, and your phrases of philosophy have nothing to do with what you show us.

what is it? is it an airport or a university?

and if it is a university what kind of university is it? is it a study academy for those who want to start studying aeronatic sciences? and a pilot school? in short what the heck is it?

Picture of miller67

Education in very important

University and essay are closely interconnected in the realm of education. A University is an institution where students engage in learning and receive formal education. An essay, on the other hand, is a written piece of work that allows students to demonstrate their understanding of various subjects, topics, or concepts. Essays are often assigned as tasks by teachers to assess students' knowledge, critical thinking skills, and ability to communicate effectively through written expression.

re: DO NOT LAND HERE

if the private owner behaves badly towards the guests and is jealous of the camp, it means that he is hiding some problem or that the airfield is not in order or that he engages in illicit acts such as drug dealing, in any case the private camp is not it is private but it is also an emergency camp and therefore the owner who behaves badly must absolutely be reported to the forces of order or to the police.

according to European rules, whoever makes airstrips or makeshift camps available does so both for emergencies and for tourism, yes, they are private, but if one has built them, he also makes them available for emergencies and tourism, therefore he is obliged to leave a contact and a telephone number and he is also obliged to enroll in the aviation register to register and also obliged to keep the runway built according to the law and in the event of obstacles he must report the obstacles or the various problems that the runway has slopes, etc., etc. this site did not allow me to add the telephone number of the owner of the airfield and wrong because the information must be published in Italy there is AVIOPORTOLANO which is a book where all the minor airports are published in accordance with the law with their respective numbers telephones.

re: DO NOT LAND HERE

if you talk to me about private runway I agree with you....but on this site the classifications of aviation facilities are not very clear.....I am an Italian and in my language the classification is this "AEREOPORTI, BASI AEREE, AVIOSUPERFICI, CAMPO DI VOLO,IDROSCALI" I in English I can't translate "CAMPI DI VOLO" if I use the translator it writes airfield but an airfield(campo di volo) and a grass runway where only ultralight aircraft can land while an airfield (AVIOSUPERFICIE) is a facility where both general aviation and ultralight aircraft can land.

re: DO NOT LAND HERE

It's generally never a good idea to land on any private airstrip without advance notice or permission except in cases of dire emergency. All headings and information here should be considered to be for informational purposes only, and contact information for owners of private airstrips may not even be publicly available depending on jurisdiction.

Short Flight

I flew to SXM (NL) from Anguilla (UK), the shortest international flight in the world on Anguilla Air Services. Then had a fun day at Maho Beach and went back to Anguilla.

Error

I flew in to MSO and drove out and there was no airport around, if my comment is a error please tell me.

Picture of Aviation_L0ver

Terrible

DFW is terrible, every time I go my bags either get lost or stuck at the airport. My flights always get delayed at least 2 hours 0/10

Picture of Aviation_L0ver

An Empty Place.

I went from my home airport of DCA to DAY, it is amazing how it there are direct flights. We were on a CRJ-900 that was 3/4s Full but when we walked to the baggage claim it was long but nobody was there, like nobody. Even the people on our plane, the place was deserted but eventually we got to baggage claim.

Anguilla

I have been to AXA around 10 times and the people were so nice! We got through customs fast and easily. The airport was clean and it was a 9/10 (the airport is a little small)

Mystery solved

Posted address on FAA and AirNav is incorrect, Western Surgery Center is adjacent to Cache Valley Hospital in North Logan.

CGI - Great Airport

I've only visited by automobile so far so I can't speak on specifics like fuel and related services.

CGI is a small regional airport that's big on amenities. Great FBO for passengers and pilots alike. There's a good restaurant called The Pilot House that has a great view overlooking the flight line and runways. One carrier (Contour Airlines, as of August 2023) based here that has affordable flights to Nashville, TN.

Everyone I've encountered here has been friendly.

The Red Baron was here.

We stopped to pick up a passenger on our way home from Indiana and the Red Baron landed just after we did.

re: Better get it right

Reply to @Randallksparks: It is quite short and narrow. The trees were a bit unnerving but I got it right and stuck it down on my first flight as a PPL.y CFI was great.

Picture of AlanM70

Looks vary nice

We had people waiting to pick us up and it was after hours so we didn’t go into the FBO. But it was vey clean and mowed up nice

Fact about SLK!

During the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics runway 05-23 was stretched to be able for a Boeing 747 to land!

Airport might move

Heard they want to move the airport about 50 ft northward of the road to make room for more development but that’s only what I heard, might not happen but who knows

Picture of animebirder

Mystery solved

The FAA and AirNav coordinates placed this incorrectly well to the north, but a chance spot of N7802K (private Cessna 180J Skywagon) observed taking off from there on 17 Feb 2023 finally solved this mystery
