Herlong Airport, Jacksonville, Fl AirNav URL http://www.airnav.com/cgi-bin/airport-info?23J

I discovered a great friendly airport on a recent trip to Florida, located at Immokalee. It is a former military field, and now a regional airport. There are 2 5000' hard surface strips, and a diagonal which is closed. There are literally a hundred acres of grass to fly out of in any direction. There is a small hanger on the west side where several gyros are kept, and ultralights fly out of there often. The airport manager could not have been friendlier. He came over on takeoffs and landings, as he had never seen a PPC there before. The small terminal
building has a new pilot lounge and flight planning area with computers and phones. I was the only one in there when I visited it. The area around Immokalee is citrus and vegetable growning country. The closed diagonal is now used on weekends for drag racing, and they had some very serious equipment there. Ajacent to the gyro hanger is a skydiving outfit, they jumped all weekend when I was there, 10 at a time. This is a very interesting area, give it a look if you get down there. http://www.airnav.com/airport/IMM Reggie Toler/Nail  Franklin,

I have a terrific PPC flight park in West Michigan.  We have RV electrical hook ups.
A wonderful "flight center" building.  We have free camping by the center or down at the trout stream.  Lots of area activities (if its too windy to fly) ...including one of the largest sand dune areas in the world.  Complete with sand dune buggy drags, hill climbs, rentals. etc.  Lots of pretty girls over there.  We live right here at the flight park.  ALL brands of PPCs are welcome here. I am an AFI/CFI and offer a full range of flight packages.  We also have a swimming hole right in the middle of the field that is filled 
with fun things like frogs for the kids.   Just a little bit of PPC heaven!

Shelton, Washington, and is called Sanderson Field Airport.  It is an old military field with 3 runways, 2 of which are closed to GA.  They allow PPC's and other UL's to use one of the closed runways.  The grass along side the runway is useable as well.  I think most PPC's can get airborne in under 5,000 feet  !!!  Prior to flying the FBO asks that you check in with them first. The FBO is Olympic Air.


64C - Vincent Airport.

  This is where I do most of my flying.  It is basically a field with an
1700 ft EW runway.  Also, there is a large square area of field near the
hangar that can be used for takeoffs in almost any direction.  The field is
unattended and has a hangar with 3 planes in it.  The only airplanes I have
ever seen fly from this field are one of the ones in the hangar, and a few
miscellaneous planes that have landed to check out my PPC!  Now and then the
local Hot air balloon club launches out of there.  Otherwise, I have the
entire "airport" to myself!  The owner of the field is a very nice lady that
I have met on a couple of occasions, and not only are PPC's welcome, but
they are encouraged!  This summer I owe her grandsons introductory

5K6 - Westosha Airport

This airport has also indicated to me that Ultralights are welcome.
However, this is a more serious airport with an average of 61
landings/takeoffs per day.  With Vincent being about 3 miles away, I do most
of my flying there.

49C - Camp Lake Airport

This airport is just to the east of Vincent and Westosha.  Airnav lists it
as containing Ultralight Traffic.
