for the most part most know the airport i live nearest to is CYXU London International Airport in London Ontario Canada, and some of the regualrs here i know are from near Sarasota Florida or so whic is KSRQ unless they have changed it...but weve gotten some other members to come back...what is your local airport and maybe mention cloesest regional/small airport(dirt strips are good too)...
so kingsak and ashely and angie are spoken for becuase theirs is KSRQ at least thats all i know... but what about smaller airports...whats near you..
48X and 5FDO are near KSRQ - both grass / dirt Please note that in the sim 48X-Airport Manatee,Palmetto Florida is there but it real life, it was closed permanently aprox. 4 years ago. It was a small grass landing strip member airport mostly used for pilot training. Operations were moved to KSRQ and KVNC to allow a sub-division to be built. KVNC,Venice has three active pilot schools that are very inexpensive. Also note that 2 of the 911 hijackers trained at KVNC and my neighbor Larry Shields was an instructor at their school. He no longer flies or teaches due to the events of 911! As for 5FDO I have no info as I have never been there. I believe it is small grass/dirt field with no refuel station except call ahead by truck. I hope this information is of use. All is factual.
I live nearest to SACO airport and in his approaching line (i see planes in my window hahaha). An airport closed in Argentina was SADD, was closed because, the municipality need the space to build a private neighborhood.
