What a fun approach! Met family there and when the attendant saw kids come into the airport, he gave them all rubber band balsa gliders.

Highly recommend, permission required to land but definitely a great place to visit! Go on a safari and shoot a flamethrower!

Found it

Sometimes, the FAA coordinates are just plain wrong. I found this airstrip using Topo Maps and the address of the owner. It's closed now, but you can at least see where the airstrip was cleared out in past years.

CLOSED

The Happy Valley Airport has been closed since at least 2009. Additionally, the runway is now being used as a driveway for a large house built at its southern end.

A Very Nice Airport

Welcome To The Conch Republic or USA! This airport is very nice and I like how it pinpoints the existence of the Conch Republic, i would have not known if it didn't Say "WELCOME TO THE CONCH REPUBLIC" On The Wall.

ROUGH pavement

There are so many weeds growing through the cracks this might as well be a grass strip

Used for 1992 Landing of Mickey Mouse One

Upon the retirement of Walt Disney's private plane Mickey Mouse One (Grumman Gulfsream I N234MM) in 1992, it landed here to be displayed at the adjacent MGM (now Hollywood Studios), as the old Walt Disney World Airport to the north had been blocked off by the construction of the monorail system. Further use of the site for aviation purposes has been permanently precluded by the No Fly Zone orders in place since 2001.

A bit of forgotten aviation history

New York Airways ran helicopter commuter flights here 1965-1968, and again briefly in 1977. A landing accident here on May 16, 1977 killed four passengers and a pedestrian on the street below, ending the use of skyscraper helipads in New York City, though they remain in use in other cities elsewhere, primarily for emergency use.

Fake Seaplane Base

I've been to Stinson Beach Multiple Times, and there is no Seaplane Base, There is no planes landing there, No Docks, And Stinson Beach Would Be too small to sustain a Airport at around 500 People living in the town.

Warning: high landing fee, GA not welcome

City council has forced the airport to institute a $35 landing fee (+HST, presumably). There are no exceptions, not even for resident pilots or pilots purchasing fuel. The fee is more than double that of CYTZ, which is downtown in Canada's biggest city.

I suggest taking your travel business to nearby Wiarton CYVV, instead -- it still welcomes GA.

My Experience At This Airport

I Flew Here On A Flight From SFO To Yuma With A Layover In Phoenix, Yuma Is A Very Awesome Town For Vacationing, And It's Airport Is Not Bad For A 90,000 Person Desert Town.

Misplaced marker

I've moved this to the apparent SW-NE runway several km east of town. Marker *had* been in town where there is clearly no airport.

Open To Passenger Flights, No Landing Fee, But Nobody Ever Comes Here, well, Its In The Arctic On A Remote Island So Why Would Passenger Planes Stop Here? No Refuel, Only 1-5 Staff, Runway Not Paved, No Buildings.

Flagged for removal

Never existed, not on topo maps or Freeman's Abandoned Airfields site.

Picture of animebirder

Flagged for removal

There's an even bigger problem here: this airport never existed. There is no trace of any airport having been on this site either in satellite imagery or any number of topographical maps going back to the beginning of aviation, nor is the site listed in any historical documentation or Paul Freeman's excellent website on abandoned and little-known airfields. Website owner notified.

Picture of animebirder

Flagged for removal

The ICAO code is fake. Kirby Cove has not been historically or currently the site of a seaplane base, particularly due to the rough waters on the seaward side of the Golden Gate preventing safe seaplane operations. Website owner has been notified.

Picture of animebirder

Flagged for removal

This "seaplane base" doesn't exist; this does not appear to be a safe landing zone as it is too narrow and surrounded by homes. Website owner has been notified.

FACTS About Old Hillsborough airport.

It was in the empty area Parallel to I-280, Had One Runaway and was very thin but long.

Picture of LasTrancasGuy

Tiny but Nice Las Trancas Airport.

Las Trancas Airport Is A Very Tiny Airport in many ideas, Its just a dirt airsrip off of Highway 1, However, Las Trancas Is A Nice Airport, And I want others to know that it is a tiny airport, Since it is so Small, The airport is only limited to Piston Single And Piston Agricultural Aircraft. I want to try buying a plane and landing on the rather tiny airstrip myself, but well not yet... It's right next to a Lumber yard off of Highway One thats right next to the airport, The Airport is a nice airport, but its unknown, Even to Locals Of Davenport! It dosen't even has its own wikipedia Page!

The Airport has a nice but very tiny building thats Clearly Visible When Driving On Highway 1 because it has a wind measuring cone on the top. Its Very Small.

Ideas With the airport:

Buy A Piston Single Or Piston Agricultural Plane And Land Here Yourself, if you want, land here multiple times.

When the place is not used, Help develop the runway by possibly painting it or making it wider by clearing off the grass.

Maybe Add Some Lights, So The Cabrillo Highway Travellers Can See The Beautiful Airport, Also Maybe A Generator.

Idk, reply 2 this comment and give more ideas on what to do with the airport or more facts about the Las Trancas airport.

Runway ident changed

My bad, runway ident has been updated to 27. However, I do not seem to be able to add/edit threshold coordinates. Any idea why?

Picture of GeoFS

Runway ident changed

Runway 26 now appears to be runway 27 (as seen in google maps images). All changes I make in ourairports.com seem to be reverted (automatically or by someone). I sent an email to contact@ourairports.com but did not get any answer. Is someone still maintaining this website?

Picture of AirDVM

Runway numbers are changed

Current Runwy number 02-20. Incorrect in database.

Excellent Facility

The cheapest gas for over 15 years is right here

Great facility with courtesy car

Too bad the don't wear masks

beware MSFS fake ICAO codes

Yeah, Asobo / MSFS have created a lot of their own GPS/ICAO codes for airports that are not congruent with reality, especially as heliports are not yet rendered in the sim as of the end of 2020 (so they wouldn't catch the duplicate).

First solo flight 1983

When I learned to fly in Canada 1983

I completed my first solo 10. of July 1983 on Midland (Huronia) Airport with an Cessna 150 C-GUKF and finally got the PPL Licence on July 29th 1983.

I never forget this awesome time flying in Ontario. Wonderful!

Recently paved and painted as of 20 Dec 2020. No perimeter fence, directly adjacent to FM 1470 to the south, private residences to the north.

Picture of animebirder

well that's a tight fit

Lots of signage warning pedestrians and motorists going into the adjacent parking garage of the "Helicopter Landing Zone". Rotor wash here must be all sorts of fun.

Name should be changed

The ICAO name is MPCL and the local three letter name used is CLZ

Picture of animebirder

Some more deets

Visible on the old topo maps available in CalTopo, and the eastern half of the runway is clearly visible running due east from the modern-day Lone Butte Casino.
