Unsanctioned airfield

John Toole Jr., the owner of Toole's Training Center, used this horse race track as an airfield for a J5 Cub in 2015, which prompted the Davie city council to ban private airfields in the city. The pilot attempted a campaign for city council as a result. Toole ultimately lost his life in a 2020 crash near Orange Springs while trying to land an Aero Commander 100 Darter Commander on an unlit grass strip (FD02 Patch o Blue) at night.

Researching a book for an essay can be tedious, but with the help of reviews like those you'll find at https://topwritingreviews.com/ , the procedure becomes much more manageable. You'll need to isolate specific aspects of the book and follow along with how they're discussed in the text. It is up to you to identify the parts of the video that are addressed in the text, and act accordingly. Perhaps the video's premise and characters need to be examined as well.

Amazing airport for spotting small planes and flying

Report from personal visit

I was able to access this field via ground transportation during a previous visit to Bastrop in 2017-2019; it's a pretty rudimentary and obviously private grass strip, little more than a mowed patch of grass beaten down by plane tires. But it's definitely there.

EVB NDB decommissioned

There is no way for me as a user to delete NAVAIDs or mark them as decommissioned. Many NAVAIDs on the site are out of date as a result. Please open editing of NAVAID to the users, including access to delete or mark as decommisioned.

Disused WW2 Facility

Built in 1940 as a training field, this was adjacent to the Japanese-American internment camp (whose remains are still visible on the map to the southwest across US-395). The airfield remained open until 1956, and in intermittent use until at least 1975.

Reopened as a UAS strip 2022

In newer imagery, this is now marked as an active UAS (Unmanned Aerial Systems) airstrip.

Closed 2022

This airport closed very recently. Wonder if they've gotten the skydiving King Air out of there since I last visited in February.

re: Sad that this is now slated to be closed soon!

Reply to @shumphries: Seems like a tough time for Texas country airports. I saw this happen to Luling Carter Field last year.

Don't land here yourself, multiple times

Ignore the spammer. This is very much a private airport, and this is a gentle reminder that inclusion on this website does not imply that any facility is open to public access or safe for landing. Please check with local authorities or the property owner (if applicable) before attempting to land anywhere that is not a known public airport.

Attended the small light sport aircraft fly-in here in March 2022, their website lists this as twice a year, so keep your eyes peeled!

Formerly Pendleton Airpark

Used to be Pendleton Airpark, 77NY. Note the unusual runway designation, E-W rather than 09-27.

Great airpark!

Flew in today for an open house for a couple of the properties on the field. Nice place!

The best fish and chips!

I heard the rumors, it took me a while to venture down here, but the fish were phenomenal! I loved the theme of the restaurant (very similar to Randy's at Boeing (RIP).

Picture of NWFLA8VATOR

Not much left to land on!

Maybe for a helicopter, or for Scrappy or Draco (RIP), but most of the airfield was eroded away

Coastal Airport (83J) is closed (Closed in 2014)

Coastal Airport was closed and is now an Escambia County school. It was a fun airport, my daughter sat in her first glider here. The gliders moved over to a nearby field in Alabama, just up the road a piece. The airfield closed sometime in 2014 and was not even on the 2017 sectional as a closed airfield. I was sad to learn that it was no longer there as it was a place that I enjoyed watching the glider at.

CLOSED

Per FAA airport is closed. I personally drove by while it was still listed as opened. I was shocked to discover how horrid it was. There was no maintenance going on. It was actually highly dangerous should a plane think it was safe to land here in an emergency. I contacted the FAA who investigated and determined it was indeed now closed. The owner had passed away and nobody notified the FAA that the airport was closed now so they were unaware. It is now listed as closed through the FAA as well. DO NOT LAND.

This may be defunct

I live in the area and while Foreflight does also recognize this airport, the geolocation is on top of railroad tracks and it is behind a mass transit train station.

Looks like a brand new fbo. Great service. As of mid 2022 it’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.

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 .

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 80’s and Art passed away in 2018. I know Claude is gone also but I don’t remember when he passed. I took several check rides from both Jean and Claude…..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

Fuel stop

Would like to see in daytime. Stopped in for fuel because 05C doesn't have after hours fuel.

Dropped off a new freind

I would like to see it in daytime. Maybe even try out the Mexican. They need to put in self-serve fuel

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!

Just stopped in for fuel on my way by.

Heliport coverage by the FAA

... is NOTORIOUSLY bad. Even heliports that have continually existed for the last forty years are routinely given GPS coordinates up to 10 miles off course.
