Our field, 06/24, is a grass strip with a gravel centreline in the lighted area, which is 3040 feet
long. The elevation is 1025+/-.
There is also an 100 foot over-run area of grass at both ends of the runway beyond the lighted area.
A taxiway from midfield leads to a grass infield, hangars, and a clubhouse.
The airport is not maintained during the winter. The plane is usually kept at a maintained field
(usually Tillsonburg), from about Christmas to mid-April.
During the summer, members are expected to pilot the mower, a Farm King F650S six foot finishing
mower pulled by an IH B275 diesel. It takes about 6 hours per mowing to keep our field in trim.
The tractor can be a bit of a bear to operate, so we've prepared a video.
We now also have a Gravely Promaster lawn mower. It also has a video regarding it's safety and operation.
