Next Fly Out Event!: Saturday December 10, 2022 Note The change!
This change is due to uncertainty in the weather the weekend of Dec 3.
For our next chapter flyout we will try to go to Castle Airport (KMER) in Atwater, CA, a mere 63 nm from KLVK. Of course, the major attraction at Castle Airport is the Castle Air Museum. This is likely our last flyout until Spring 2023.
The runway at Castle airport is a mere 11,800 ft which is long enough for most anything flying. In fact, if landing Rwy31 it is advisable to take the first TWY B but certainly TWY C or you’ll be taxiing back from halfway to KLVK. And, if landing Rwy 13, it’s best to request to land really long or it’ll also be a long taxi.
There are several restaurants and/or food trucks near KMER. We will be trying to decide on a single meeting place closer to the day of the flyout. The museum is a 0.9 mi walk from the parking ramp at the southwest side of the field. The museum is almost a mile from the ramp but Gemini Flight Support, the FBO, has said they will supply transport to the Museum. We’ll meet at 11:30 at Gemini. But, you can certainly arrive early for a longer tour of the museum.
