helpful ATC (fast talkers)

This was my first x-country solo. I made it within 15 nm and took a weird turn to the SW for some reason. Unsure of the area and no familiar landmarks/waypoints. ATC got me back on track. :)

Great Airport

Line service was very friendly and helpful. Had to emergency land here due to ice and Approach was a life-saver!

Slippery Rock Airport... ;-)

Great airport for flying into SRU. My son went there, Airport staff always great. Parachuting at the west end though

Hard to find

I don't know why. Maybe because everything on the ground in that area looks like a stripe of some sort, it was a hard to find airport.

Great Place!

Super nice airport privately owned by a local farmer open to public. Both 100LL and Jet A available. Hangered the plane 3 night $10 per night!

I did my initial flight training here and took my private check-ride here. That was when Heritage Aviation, LLC existed. Dave Hall was a great instructor.

IATA code confirmation please?

I just added the IATA code ESP to this airport, and I'm not 100% sure. IATA code lookup shows ESP assigned to "Birchwood-Pocono" in East Stroudsburg, which has been closed since 1996: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birchwood-Pocono_Airpark) However, a few non-authoritative sources have ESP assigned to this airport (do a Google search for "N53 ESP"). Can anybody please confirm this change?

Great Airport

This is the where I earned my PPL. It is home to one of the best FBO's in the northeast.. Great place to learn to fly!

Not What I Expected

I landed but there was no jetway to main terminal - or in this case an old house that looked like something out of Green Acres. I waited for my luggage to arrive but apparently there was no ground crew working that day. Coming from Indiana, I am accustomed to things being a little "backward", but I was not prepared for my encounter with the owner of the airport - CCP. I was wanting to get on my way but he kept going on with stories about meeting Mohammed Ali, and drinking Aquavit with Victor Borgia, and slam jamming some kinda vertical banjo at some German place in his old college town... he went on and on about his boyhood life and adventures in Norway, and cliff diving off the coast of Fredonia, and all the girls he fell in love with and on and on and on and on..... aiy yi yi!!!

Glider landing options

Glad to discover Yarrow (28PA). It's always good to have landing out options in view! Thanks for keeping this airstrip operational. I'll watch for it from the air.

Picture of evorbach

approach

interesting place. Surrounded by mountains - approach carefully. Slope up hill on 28 like a ski jump. Nice FBO - odd in the middle of nowhere. People came out in a hurry b/c they thought the pump was broken. Stopped for fuel on the way home. I'd stop again.

airport upgrades

The airport is currently closed getting new lights a new beacon and a new awos system. The airport also received a new piece of snow removal equipment last year . Keep up the good work Mr. Roman!!!!

Fuel Prices

there fuel prices are outrageous there asking $4.60 for 100LL and $4.25 for jet Fuel. Why arent they all arested and put in jail for price gouging.

Picture of

airport management

who is the manager of the hazleton airport. Do they have an advisory committee. if they have either it appears useless. I have never seen an airport that size that is in such poor standards. no quality no lites no management my future business? I dont think so!

Picture of

weekday line service

the line serviceman during the week appears nonexistent. no one answers the radio no one comes out to greet you and if you can find the employee in question he is usually asleep.

re: KCXY

Great airport, great service and great customer service personnel. An airport you have to give a try

re: KCXY

Reply to @TwinCoFlyer: That's great news! There were too many horror stories from UFS-Aero.

Picture of TwinCoFlyer

KCXY

Everybody should know that the FBO at CXY has been replaced. CXY Aviation is the new FBO. UFS-Aero is gone and thankfully so. NOW THERE ARE NO RAMP FEES, NONE. THERE IS STILL A LANDING FEE WHICH IS WAIVED FOR FUEL PURCHASES OR ANY OTHER SERVICES DONE BY ANY OF THE BUSINESSES ON THE FIELD. There are new hangers built and available. There are other maintanence shops. "Aircraft Maintanence Services" and "Wings and Things" to mention two. The new FBO is developing a new flight school and other facilities. Fuel is once again competitively priced. The Tower personal are great and very helpful. Give KCXY a try and I believe that you will not be dissatisfied.

Thanks for your consideration.

re: FBO and airport fees

Reply to @david: I was there today and once again I had to pay a $150.00 ramp fee, and what did I get for it? NOTHING!!! The TV never works and now they do not have a crew car. I asked them twice and thought maybe someone would offer us a ride but they told us twice that we could walk to the stripmall. Unless I absolutely have to go to KCXY I will go to KMDT!!!

The Silver Wing

Visited St Mary's on Sunday, March 15 and had breakfast at the Silver Wing, which occupies the second floor of the nice new terminal building on the field. Nice restaurant, good food, terrific view of the ramp and runway. With the way airport restaurants have been closing, stop in and keep these nice people in business!

Picture of ianturton

no air traffic control

There is however regular scheduled service to Washington DC, Detroit and Philadelphia from State College. Allegedly on home football game days this becomes the busiest uncontrolled airfield in the US/the world (depends on the source). The runway had to be lengthened to allow Michigan to land their enormous jet with the whole team and band on board.

Wrong ID?

The FAA uses PA48 for Holy Spirit Hospital Helipad.
