2. Information for ultralights

Warning: MTR (military training route) VR-1130 is just northeast of the airport.  Aircraft speed can exceed 250 knots and be at altitudes lower than 1,500' AGL.   I recommend that all ultralights flying near this route have a strobe that is easily seen during daylight hours such as this one.  See the strobe page for instructions on how to install it.


All ultralights are warned to stay away from the approach to riunway 19 (red line).  General aviation aircraft cannot see you.

3. Directions to Hangar #14 (Southwest Airsports)

Come in the airport entrance (top of photo) and go through the open gate, immediately turn right at the "y", head towards the taxiway that goes north/south through the airport to the end of the buildings, then left onto the taxiway that goes to our hangar, the last one in the airport.  The hangar has a huge sign with our name on it so you cannot miss it.
