Please remember to lock the gate when you are the last Certified Pilot / Club Member leaving the field.

Tell any non-Certified Pilot, or non-club member, that you must lock the gate when you leave, and ask them to head out before you.

If you are leaving -PLEASE- make sure another Certified Pilot will lock the gate when they leave.

When locking the gate: the lock must be placed on the metal bar & the bar feeds through the eyelet hole. This permits county people to unlock the gate with their key.

General Info


Plane Retrieval Service

If your plane is stuck in a tree, call Jose Salmeron at

He is very responsive (within 24 hours of request on weekends).

Cost is around $100.00 but may increase if he has to go way out on a limb, or it decrease if retrieving multiple planes.
