It has been asked when is the best time to arrive Friday. I would make plans to arrive after 3:00. Keep in mind fly-ins should arrive before 6:30 as the field will be CLOSED from 6:30p-7:00p Friday evening for a short airshow. Sunset is 7:16 so there will be a window to arrive or depart after the show. If you missed the burgers at 5:00 the grill will be available after the show. I will have a number of beers and liquor for friends. If we have not met all you need to do is introduce yourself and you will be welcome to partake – the more friends the better. The fire will be burning until the last owl calls it a night.

f you plan to camp, showers will be available Saturday morning 7:00-9:00a at Ranger College (right next to the airfield). If you are staying at a hotel, no problem, we’ll get you set up with transportation.

There will be a number of items available for breakfast Saturday & Sunday morning.

Saturday’s lunch will be served around 11:30 – choice brisket slow-smoked with pecan.

The field will be CLOSED Saturday at 1:00p and will open immediately after the show. The airshow is less than an hour.

For those planning to stay Saturday night, the showers and transportation will be the same as Friday. Some guests will be going to Mary’s Café in Strawn that evening. If you would like to go talk to me about a ride. The fire pit will be hot Saturday evening for those who have already had enough beef for the weekend and want to stay back. Drinks again around the pit.

Traffic is SEE and AVOID. You might hear someone offering guidance over the radio but do not plan for that. Any guidance given is only offered as support. It is each pilots responsibility to maintain distance from other aircraft. Plan to use SEE and AVOID.

Go arounds (sometimes known as flybys) are not discouraged so long as the pattern is flown and the pass is not downwind. Runway 1 and 19 are standard (left) pattern. Pattern altitude is 1000 ft. agl.

Main things to remember:
Field closed Friday 6:30p-7:00p

Field elevation 1470 ft.
Runway 1-19 3400 x 75 ft.
