Yes my friends, you are all welcome to see what we believe is the greatest airfield on this planet. For over 50 years this piece of aviation earth has had a character and charisma all its own. It is a land of history embedded in its name alone, along with all sorts of antiques about to back up its stories. There is so much to see and do at this exciting "Airfield-Park", called Van Sant, that you just have to come and experience a day in paradise for yourself.
Many new creations are in the wind here on this rolling hill of plenty. We will try our best to keep you informed through the gift of modern social media, email and good old fashion word of mouth.
Our job is to educate, provide entertainment, restore, maintain, fly and have fun while staying safe and conservative. With respect and a focus on happiness, our success will follow with the help of you, our friends, neighbors and fellow aviators.
Do you want your Glider to follow a class act? Would you like to be a part of film fantasy? Sir Launch-A-Lot has arrived! Also known as Sir-Lands-A-Lot, or "Lusty", as the pilots that fly "Him"... not her in this case..., can vouch that this machine has a lust, a passion, a desire to tow Gliders all day long. Kids just want to hug him and get their picture taken with him. Come and witness the smiles and happiness this flying machine brings to our table of joy.
Rides, instruction and rentals are available within this flying circus of Biplanes, Cubs, Champs, Taylorcrafts and Gliders. Many other makes and models of antique aircraft are based on or visit our field that it feels like we have our very own airshow every weekend while antique - classic cars & motorcycles are lining the parking lot. The picnic area provides a fantastic shaded spot to watch those magnificent men in their flying machines take to the sky on a calm sunny afternoon.
During the week, if the time is right, you may want to stroll down to the shop "Old School Aviation" and see what restorations are being given to some old mechanical birds.
Come, sit, ride, fly, tell stories, watch and enjoy being a part of our new and old comrades giving the gift of flight.
Open to the public.
Summer: Wednesday thru Sunday 9:00 to 6:00. Winter: Wednesday thru Sunday 8:30 to 4:00
Then again, good weather is flying weather; we'll be here, just call!
