  • Nice little airport and diner. Did my tail wheel training there with John Dye. Best flight instruction I have ever had!

  • I stopped in last summer to meet an old high school friend of mine while working on my commercial rating. My hometown is just a few miles away and I remember going to the dragstrip (which my friend mistakingly landed on once)next to the airfield. I have been trying to get the local flyinig clubs to head down there one day for lunch. Great place, great people

  • Visited last week after reading this post. What a great place, and the people could not have been nicer! Highly recommended !
