Local Info

Tips

  • Always check official sources of information for weather, NOTAMs, procedures, etc.
  • The tower operates 0630-2230 LCL. Call CTAF on 119.1 MHz at least 10 miles out.
  • If you're approaching from the south or southeast, Tower will probably ask if you're coming around the ridge or over the ridge. Sometimes a few planes are inbound or outbound going around the ridge, and Tower wants to be able to provide appropriate advisories.
  • All fixed-wing traffic patterns are on the NORTH side of the airport, because of the ridge to the south. Terrain and towers 2171 MSL, airport is 528 MSL.

Learn to Fly

Energy Aviation (see above) rents aircraft and has several flight instructors on staff.

There are several other CFIs in Williamsport, at least half a dozen, probably a dozen or more. I'll add them to a list here as soon as they give me their preferred contact info.

You can learn to fly Light Sport aircraft at AvSport of Lock Haven. LSA rentals and maintenance available.
