Mears Field Airport, Concrete, WA
"Great airport to camp at. Just pull onto the south side grass near the tree line, setup camp and enjoy! The pilot's lounge has water, showers, a kitchen fully stocked with pots/pans/plates, stove, microwave and refrigerator. Computer for checking the weather and WIFI. 1 mile walk to town. 1/2 mile to a gas station/store and burger place on HWY 20. Fuel prices are a little steep, but maybe throw in a few gallons to help support keeping cool airports like this alive. I have no idea why more people don't camp here! It's super quiet, nice locals and you could even sleep on one of the several hide-a-bed sofas in the pilots lounge if you want. There is a donation box right outside the lounge, so leave some cash for a cheap camping experience. WPA passport stamp is in the pilot's lounge building." - Submitted by Russell Longdon

"All aviators are welcome to fly into our awesome non-towered airport, North Central State Airport! We've had all sorts of amazing visitors, to include Taylor Swift! Air Ventures Flying School has a lovely outdoor patio set and grill for anyone to use at their leisure! A comfortable air conditioned pilot's lounge, with complementary refreshments and homemade baked treats! Keep posted on the Air Ventures Flying School website for local events such as movie nights, luau's, chili cook-offs, live music events and more! The airport is located to many affordable and comfortable lodging nearby, shopping, and awesome restaurants! We highly suggest Blackie's or Terrazza's both are located narby outside patios if you don't plan on cooking at the airport. North Central is located only about 12 minutes from downtown providence! Perfect if you are flying into providence for the weekend! Contact Makayla or Doug for any further questions!" - Submitted by Makayla Davis

Prop Swap - Sensenich High Speed Ground Adjustable
We removed our old wood prop and replaced it with a Sensenich ground adjustable composite. Our previous one was both dated and needed some TLC, plus a ground adjustable prop is very helpful at our high altitude. Hope you enjoy us sharing our first major change with you.
