I have family near Garfield Bay so I'll be flying up to Sand Point in a couple weeks. I am really looking forward to it.


On topic: Favorite airports to fly into are KSEZ (Sedona), KTRK (Truckee), and L05 (Kern Valley).

KLAS is also pretty cool to fly into. Park at Atlantic and you are practically already on the strip.

Many years ago, mid 70's to early 80's I worked on Hobby Field in Houston. Had some great times, great friends and seen plenty. So that's an airport of many wonderful memories. Now I'm back home, KHKY and can be found there most anyday...camera in hand..


Hobby is excellent ... big enough to get the experience you need in today's environment but not so big that you wait around for ever to get moving.

Not the prettiest airport but it got the easiest access to San Francisco for the NorCal crowd. Shuttle ride to BART (transit) and 30 mins to downtown. Three runways for non-airline use, and a separate friendly GA tower.

For the more romantic coastal airports, Half Moon Bay is pretty but not quite Shelter Cove material.

KOAK is very good indeed ... it is tough to get a southbound IFR departure though ...

And even with that, it's a lot more common than people think. What has to happen is the entire Bay has to flip the boat to East/south ops. This generally happens when the winds at KSFO have a tailwind component greater than 10kts from the east or a crosswind component greater than 20kts from the east. When it happens:
  • KSFO uses 19L/R for landing, 10L/R for departures.
  • KOAK uses 9L/R, 10, and 15 for landing and departures.
  • KSJC uses 11 and 12L/R for landing and departures.


All other airports near the area follow suit and flip the boat to accommodate the traffic flow. When you see the winds out of the east (read: 090 clockwise to 190), have a listen to the OAK or SFO LiveATC feeds, and you'll see a lot of southbound/southeastbound IFR departures.

That certainly explains it ... I experienced the opposite conditions to what you are describing. My clearance for SNA had me going due east until I was handed over to Castle who ended up improving the situation. I was quite inexperienced at the time; I think that I could have worked harder to improve the situation.

Wow, quite the thread. Have to say I was surprised Sedona wasn't mentioned earlier.

Flew my g/f there in a 172 day after my checkride. I learned that tired C172+8500' density altitude+5kt tailwind=very poor choice. Still remember the stall warning horn blaring as I tried to coax her out of ground effect. Other than "no honey that sound was normal" I didn't utter a word until I contacted PHX approach. "License to learn" right?

Other favorite has to be Felts Field, Spokane, WA. Beacon Hill to the immediate North, cool water runway, and FSDO on field. What else could you ask for?

Please pardon the following hijack.

@AviationAcres is Jake Plummer still hanging around town? I remember hearing something about him coaching at the HS.

rgHangar, looks like good rental rates indeed! I'm renting out at KFRG but seems KCDW would be a little closer and more reasonably priced (except for the landing fees). Bookmarked RGI site and hope to give you guys a call soon.

I like 7V2, North Fork Valley in Paonia Colorado because it's on top of a narrow mesa. And the 100LL is relatively cheap.

Ha I seen that bird before when it came to OLV. It's a pretty neat warbird for sure!
