Hurricane Ida!

Great airport. My first visit was to drop supplies for victims of Hurricane Ida. The place looked like a war zone, in part because an army search/rescue unit was staging from there. Hope to be back when they've built back!

Nice Older Airport

3 runways 2 grass 1 cement look to be in good shape. Went down to work on an irrigation engine. Was a sign on nice big hanger β€œfor sale or rent” I would love to have it at home.

Nice Airport, Clean newer FBO

Always fun to add a new airport. Flew in for a family reunion. Was met by family but do have curtesy car.

My Home Field

Earned all my ratings here...from PVT up through CFI-IA. Great facilities, 2 flight schools on the field, maintenance is top-notch, Garmin dealer, and plenty of hangar space (not cheap, but not overly out of line for the area). AIrport has been in operation since the 1920s, and has a good working relationship with the town after many years of issues during the 1980s...could stand as an example of how to go along to get along in the most densely populated state in the US.

They give out loan to genuine minded people that are interested at 2% rate. They are extremely efficient. They can increase your score and clean your report in somedays too as they did for me. They give solutions to all credit issues. Contact if you interested @ PERMANENTCREDITREPAIRER AT GMAIL DOT COM

Crazy indeed!

You'd have to be crazy to land here! Fun to fly by though!

Never ending sunset

I landed here at 2am on 7/30 after landing at Deadhorse around midnight. Night may not be the right word since it was basically a 4 hour long sunset/rise. Absolutely incredible

Elevation: ZERO!

Great airport with helpful service, chilled FBO, and cheap gas. But I came here for the selfie with the airport sign showing "Elevation: 0.0"!

First gravel strip

Landed here in a bonanza v35. Amazing park and service in McCarthy. Runway was fine and we had a great time exploring the glacier

Picture of wolfgangx

Friendly line service

Stopped here for gas on my way to norther AK. Staff came out to pump my gas and even gave us two homemade cookies!

Update

I've given this a provisional name based on the location, but I've come up with the same problem as @im -- not mapped, no data available. More research needed.

Crowded airport

I have been to the San Diego airport several times to drop my mom it is a very crowded airport but still the management here works very fast we didn't have to stand in line for a long time.

Landed in SR22T G6

Very bumpy surface, I’d say its β€œiffy” for a Cirrus with wheel pants. Incredible spot, short walk to wonderful beach, tie downs and picnic tables on site. Need to sign a waiver and agreement with the operator before landing.

FAA oddity - a CA coded airport in Nevada

Per Airnav:

Sectional chart: (AIRPORT IS 10 MILES INTO NEVADA. THE CLOSEST ASSC CITY IS BISHOP, CA - AND IS CORRECTLY CHARTED ON SAN FRANCISCO SECTIONAL.)

Since it's not actually in California, I have corrected the data to reflect that it is indeed closer to Dyer, Nevada.

Army National Guard Helicopter LZ

Used for landings in support of frequent Texas ANG helicopter operations at this lake.

Hello! How to download these georeferenced satellite images?

Picture of animebirder

Corrected.

It only took a decade ... but yeah, we're all good here now.

Picture of wolfgangx

Good gas stop

Must have been an old military base. Massive runway. ForeFlight said fair condition but I would say it was good

Picture of wolfgangx

Great restaurant!

Stopped to meet my brother and sister-in-law. The restaurant gave us a bowl of water for our dogs. Very friendly

My instructor pointed out this field a while ago, and every time I fly above it - it does look like an airport. I tried simulated engine failure to approach in this airfield but it's pretty steep on one end and very close to Livermore on the other. Not sure if this is a private field or maybe it never went into operation. Could not find any information about it either

Picture of wolfgangx

good gas stop

TWO avgas pumps!!

Great gas stop!

Loved stopping here for gas, classic small town airport

Picture of wolfgangx

Smooth landing

This airport had one of the smoothest runways I’ve landed on!

Picture of TonyG

Not Functional

The aiport is no longer functional. It's been converted to a flea market and landing there would be virtually impossible.

Picture of AlanM70

Nice place to go

I am here for a few days to finish up my private certificate. Will probably consider coming back to get commercial and IFR.

Update

Signed as closed and for sale. Gliderport field is overgrown and now dotted with bushes. Checked in-person 15 May 2021.

Picture of wolfgangx

fees

Picture of animebirder

Can you imagine an airport here?

Per http://www.aerofiles.com/airports-CA.html, "[approx: 37-43-22N, 119-38-09W] (19??-19??) 1927 = W of Yosemite Village; "approximately 1300' square grass field, very dangerous." 1928 = (L) (Standard Oil ad, WnFly 1/28). 19?? = (R) Closed to flying activity." The listed coordinates place this at El Capitan Meadow! This does not appear to be listed on Freeman's Abandoned Airports site.

Site of Arizona Flying Circus Fly-in

Not quite the same location as the old dedicated airfield to the west, but in a way this resort continues to have aviation facilities in the 21st century. Pretty neat.

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.

Great Ranch!

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

My Experience

Wouldn't Even Talk About This Airport If It Didn't Have A White Castle And The World's Largest Chevron. Very Nice Airport.

Picture of NYANWT

Very Crammed Airport

So Many Stuff And People Its Hard To Get Around. Outside I Hear Lots Of Cars. Worse Density Than SFO Or Even JFK Airport

Picture of NYANWT

My Experience

Vegas Is Very Nice Compared To NYC. A Beautiful City Near Lake Mead.

A Brand New Modern Airport! I Am Glad To Only Be A 15 Minute Drive FROM It.

Airline Service = yes

American is operating to Phoenix and Dallas, United to Denver.

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.

Picture of JeffT

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.

The Entire Airport Got Revamped

I Like How My Closest Airport To Me Got Changed ENTIRELY, The Terminals Are Now Different, and More Signs And Services Have Been Built
