General Aviation News

What would you like to see?

Ben Sclair at General Aviation News was kind enough to run a survey for us. The question was this: What do YOU want to see in a fly-in community?

  • 1) The preferred lot size was between one and two acres (54%), or three to four acres (12%). Our lots are about 2.5 acres each, with at least an acre and a half buildable. While 25% of the respondents would consider lot sizes under an acre, zoning here won't allow it, and we'd like to keep this a low-density place to live.
  • 2) About half (52%) said the air park should not restrict the style or size of the homes, and the other half (48%) said they should. There are minimum sizes specified by city zoning, and we anticipate "gentle" restrictions on size and style. See the next question.
  • 3) 17% said no homeowner's association, 27% said a strong homeowner's association, and 56% preferred a weak/basic homeowner's association. We're going with the weak association. We do need to have some ability to manage the air park's business, but we have no intention of becoming intrusive or dictatorial.
  • 4) 70% of the respondents said they wanted to be in a small community. Oak Hill is exactly that, we have about 2,000 residents. 25% said they wanted to be near a large city. Orlando is just under an hour away (and we don't have their congestion or prices!). Five percent wanted a rural area. All we can say is come and look around, you'll like the neighborhood.

    We are ten minutes from I-95 to the south, 15 minutes from I-95 to the north, and we are just a few blocks off US-1.
  • 5) 60% wanted to buy an existing home, 40% wanted to build. We don't have existing homes, this is a new air park. We do, however, have a number of excellent homebuilders in the area. The city is easy to deal with and the building inspector is a gem, he tells you how, not why you can't.
  • 6) How many lots? 58% wanted 20 to 49 lots in the air park. We should have 15 homes. 12% wanted 100 to 200, 15% wanted fewer than 20, and 15% wanted 50 to 99. Big fly-ins become unmanageable, tiny ones can't support extensive services.
  • 7) We will try very hard to keep fees as low as possible. Right now, we may be able to keep the monthly fees under $150, with the assumption that some residents may mow the easements or generally help out at the airstrip. 37% of the respondents said they wanted fees under $100 a month, 53% said $100 to $250, 8.5% would pay $250 to $499 a month, and a few hardy souls were willing to pay over $500 a month. (wow!)

    The fees cover runway maintenance and air park maintenance. Runway maintenance includes the liability insurance premium and mowing/fertilizing, etc., while the air park maintenance is mostly for signage and easement grading.
  • 8) Our runway (16/34) is grass. 52% wanted pavement, hopefully we will have enough other advantages to convince at least some of them that this isn't a deal breaker. 22% wanted concrete. A matching number, also 22% wanted grass, and four percent didn't care. There are currently no plans to pave the runway (so I guess that leaves out the Learjet crowd).
  • 9) Over half (53%) wanted a runway of 3,000 to 3,500 feet. We've got it. We are about at 3,300 feet, give or take. Approach from the south is unobstructed, from the north, there are some trees which are not very tall, so the landing threshold is displaced slightly. Only 12% wanted a runway longer than 3,500 feet, everyone else was happy with that or less.
  • 10) Presently, the field is unlighted. We may install reflectors and eventually pilot-controlled lights. We don't anticipate very much night operation, but lights are very welcome if you get home later than you expected.

Why no phone number?
I'm usually not near a phone, and I can't hear it in my airplane, on my tractor or in my hangar anyway. I'll phone or e-mail you back, as you prefer.
