What is the most remote airport you have been to?

Mine is probably Francistown airport, in which I also mentioned as my other topic on “what is the least busy airport you have been to?”

if you don’t get what it means by remote you can google it, but in this case I mean what is the least accessible airport you have been to/“randomest” airport you have been to

Unfortunately in all honestly I have to say, KPIT… 😞

I’d hardly call it “remote” but by the numbers it is the smallest…

Actually it isn’t remote at all, but it is in a much less dense area than FLL, ORD, EWR, or ARL… so…

La Fortuna Arenal Airport in Costa Rica. Flew in on a private charter a few years back. The terminal is just an open room under a roof. I was shocked that they even had a baggage cart!

Lisičji Jarak Airport, 13 km north of Belgrade. Only one 1,000 meter grass runway. Don’t age any pictures but I was there in 2018. There’s a couple of GA parked there, and one old Yugoslavian Air Force aircraft. The buildings consist of a wonderful outdoor cafe, a small first aid center, and some offices.

That blue airport map label, by the way, is there because of me, I contacted Apple Maps and told them about it :)

PLS, KGTU.

Although, the glider port where I go for gliding is super remote. Grass runway. It’s FLF glider port in Briggs, Texas. If that counts, that’s the winner.

Not very remote or unheard of but it would be Kona International on the Big Island of Hawaii (PHKO)

Definitely Talkeetna Airport in Alaska.

Talkeetna is a small town a little bit north of Anchorage. I don’t know a ton about it, but very few people even live there. This airport operates with a CTAF and still has an FSS.

It’s sort of not incredibly easy to see through the trees.

I flew there in a C182 once.
