    WHAT?!?!?!? YOU'VE GOT TO BE JOKING...RIGHT? My two favorite hobbies side by side, and a beautiful flying area to boot! Maybe one day, in a land far far away, I'll have to fly in to visit you "jiott", with the clubs packed of course! Beautiful, just beautiful.

    No joke! That's why they named the airport "Fairways". Its not a complete bowl of cherries however, one approach is over a housing development; the other is over a huge system of power lines as you can see in the photos. Not very friendly to an engine failure on takeoff.

    I did practice some "impossible" 180 degree turns today at altitude of course and found the Kitfox capable of completing the maneuver in just a little over 300' of altitude loss. Of course that is not a safe working number considering the surprise factor, obstacles, etc. Nevertheless, it is an impressive airplane.

    Jim,

    Your photos show the obstacles well, the houses don't look that bad. However, those power lines look ominous. Beautiful area!

    Be great to see you at the breakfast. We have at least 3 Kitfoxes in the area; maybe we can get all of us to show up at Twin Oaks one of these times.
