Hello airplane campers. Today, Feb. 2 , we received our final approval from the DeSoto County building department for the new restroom/shower facility. The building contains two showers and two restrooms with hot and cold water. This now completes the Aviation City long range plan we developed about 5 years ago.
Looking back to that time, we were not sure we could manage to carry out our plan for the entire project as we had strong opposition. We decided we would always take the high road and not take no for an answer. As most of you know we got many “NOs” over the years but never gave up and managed to get it done in spite of all the push back. Now we have strong support at all levels of government including the FAA. Our community support is obvious and that is bolstered by you, our Friends members, with numbers that hover around 635 strong! Thanks to you all.
We still plan some landscaping and will add an outside sink in the near future to increase the usefulness of the facility.
So if you are an airplane camper please plan to reserve a date for an overnight visit to Aviation City soon to support this great on airport campground. If you have never thought about going camping with your airplane now is the time to get the entire family together and see what all the fuss is about. Aviation City is a wonderful place for the entire family to enjoy both the airport and a wooded campsite experience, where you taxi right to your campsite.
