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

PPC there before. The small terminal

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.
