POLL: What is your FS home airport?

Recommended Posts

I live in Arlington, VA between KIAD and KDCA. I can see the airliners taking off to the north from DCA from my computer room window. It's fascinating to see the window lights as they angle up into the sky at night. Leesburg is the closest GA airport to me, but I do not like taking off into IAD's ILS approach.My FS home airport varies with mood, but I make most of my flight tests from Parks Airport in MD, near Nanjemoy Creek, across the river from Quantico. In real life it's a private airstrip, but nice enough that I use it frequently. I try to keep out of the DC TRACON area and into smaller airports on the Eastern Shore. Tend to stay closer to Baltimore, Phil, into NJ and Delaware. KTGI was favorite home for a while. KWWD often for testing. KOXB for fun. KMTN, KILG, KSBY, KCGE, KESN usual suspects. I like Melfa, VA and down south along Cape Charles to ORF also (have frequented Hummel).Steve

Hi from the Great Basin mountain west-Nevada, USA!KRNO-(Alt 4412 feet) Reno/Lake Tahoe International is home airport and I live within the Reno city limits. I often listen in to the actual tower and approach control, especially in windy/stormy winter weather. I also use 4SD, Stead (home of the Reno Air Races) as it is an uncontrolled field great for touch and go's and practicing high altitude, mountain approaches; no ILS there, tho:-(Retired Jet Combat Pilot/Air Traffic Controller/Software DeveloperLarry S.PS-Great Question!

I live in the Chicago area, just a few miles from KPWK. I'm currently at college, though, in Cambridge, MA, which places me about halfway between KBED and KBOS.As for my FS home airport, I start from KORD.:-outta

C08 - Silver West,- Westcliffe, CO. actually there two small western hicktowns Silver Cliff and Westcliffe back to back - hence the a/p name although it is in Westcliffe - also its all in Custer County - the real a/p has more buildings and i think a hanger?? not sure its about 12 miles out of town and i havent been there in a while. if you take off and fly... uhhh..north i think follow the road its suppose to be route 69 and it will T with 96 and you will see a little autogen town thats me/us they dont quite have it correct but you get the idea - out in no mans land the Sangre De Cristo mountain range will be on the west side and Wet moutains on the east. were in the valley - closest major a/p would be KCOS, KPUB, KDENciao!Brian S

FS Home: KBOSAs a Navy Pilot I kinda wish I had one home, but so far its been Whiting Field Milton FL, NAS Corpus Christi TX, NAS Moffett Field CA, NAS Barbers Point HI, NAS Keflavik IC, NAS Jacksonville FL, then back to Hawaii and MCAS Kaneohe Bay.It's more of a moving target than a home, but it's a living!Rick

Well I have 2 main home airports. One for props, the other is for jets.KMGC - Michigan City, IN - I live 1 mile away from this airport. Its about the same length as Meigs but a lot narrower. Nice place to test props and other light aircraft.KSBN - South Bend, IN - This airport is around 20-30 miles away from my home town of Michigan City. This is the place where I normally fly jets or bigger aircraft from.Occasionally I gotta use a bigger airport (Indy, or Grissom ARB) for some other planes, but that dont happen often since I normally fly smaller stuff.
