Apple Valley Airport
In my two visits I was treated particularly courteously by the
guy at the gas pump . . .
Bargain fuel prices, many homebuilts, war birds, and the Wings cafe.
A perfect destination for that $100 hamburger - nestled in the lush, treelined Anderson Valley, 30nm SE of Mendocino.
30 minutes by bus to Carmel-By-The-Sea.
No one should miss the Castle Air Museum at the old Castle Air Force Base.
200+ war birds and 200+ antique/classic/experimentals.
1/2 mile walk to historic Columbia State Park and a California Gold Rush era town with well-preserved Wells Fargo, hotels, saloons, and museums.
This is a very special little airfield. Lots of taildraggers, antiques,
biplanes, etc, make this field well worth a visit if you're an oldtimer
like me. Plus, Bob's Cafe is makes a great breakfast or lunch, and
features its' 'World Famous Chili`...
The only irrigated sod airstrip in California. A good place for homebuilt enthusiasts.
In the Humbolt County Eel River Canyon with giant redwoods.
A mountaintop airstrip with great cafe, classic airplanes, picnics, and camping.
