General Aviation Suggestions

From what i have seen it seems the majority of you still to well populated airports in commercial aircraft and stray slightly afield for some touch and goes to get up your landings!

It would be great to see to see more people at more airports properally exploring IF to its full potential which is why i am asking the community to help me compile an ever expanding database of small airports with wonderful scenery that seem to be not used very often!

So if you can help out suggest a few airports down below which i will check before adding them below!


•A remote airport hard to access and away from towns and cities
•An airport with no or little commercial operations!
•An airport unable to handle even a 737. Exceptions may apply
•Preferrably an airport with great scenery surrounding it and tricky approaches and descents!

KLMO is my local airport, the scenery isn’t great, mostly flat until the foothills, nice and small, I’ve seen some C130’s there.

Yeah! Thats my plan! I would love to see more GA activity (even though the aircraft speed annoys me) and more people exploring all corners of the IF world not just exploring Lukla in an F-16 on casual!

Also see some events relating to this appearing soon!

I’ll check it out @KindaAngrySliceOfPie

But please use the format above!

I don’t think Long Beach counts. McDonnell Douglas made MD11s and DC10s there.


Granby/Grand County Airport.
Colorado, USA

Terrain Description: Surrounded by easily navigable mountainous terrain, extremely scenic.

Biggest Permitted Aircraft: Cessna Citation X

Why? Located in the town of Granby, this general aviation airport provides easy access to tourist heavy towns such as Grand Lake and Winter Park, Colorado. Located along the continental divide, enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery in Colorado, from the high plains of Middle Park to the soaring peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park.

Why have I requested it? I own a vacation cabin near the town of Granby and enjoy spotting small GA’s here frequently.

Elevation: Roughly 8,500 ft.

Hey Callum,
For me since I live in Singapore, we don’t have very many GA airports. However when I visit my Uncle in the US I go and fly with him at N40 a tiny tiny airport. Biggest plane, probably a caravan. Btw if ur so intersted in GA you should check out the GA club that’s about to be made by me and @MisterButler!

I wish there was a database of edited GA/uncontrolled fields here on the forum. That would help a lot.
