I don’t typically include advertisements in the content area of Living With Your Plane, but this is a rather intriguing ad with some additional information below:
Additional information about Ozark Skies from Bob Rutz:
- Right in the middle of our airpark, Gary Ciocco and his family have moved recently. He has an A&P license and refueling certificate (in case our Homeowner’s Association decides to buy a fuel tank.) Gary also has years of experience working on military helicopters. He is our first anchor owner.
- The reason we’re offering a FREE lot to our second anchor owner is our grass airstrip looks a little different from what most airstrips look like. As you land (always) on 24, the first 1500′ has a 1% to 2% upwards slope. The last 500′ of our 2000′ strip is even steeper, and will quickly kill any airspeed you may have left. Gary says it’s the kind of airstrip a C130 was designed to land on. For takeoff (always) on 06, you will have all the airspeed you need in the first 500′ downhill, with the last 1500′ seldom needed. This works good with the prevailing winds. The reason we need an owner flying in and out of there is to show newcomers how safe it is. Pilots of the planes who have already landed here see no problems with it.
- Ozark Skies Airpark is part of Living Springs, the established community at www.ChristianCommunities.com described as making an effort to become self-sustaining by putting greenhouses on its 60 acres of bottom land which can be gravity-fed by our 40-acre fishing lake.
- There are a number of beautiful $250,000 to $400,000 log homes here. We will finish drafting the Airpark Homeowners Association covenants with the help of the first Homeowners who join the flying part of our community!
