What is the length/width of the runway?

I ask only because this will determine what size jets can fly in and out.

Plenty of nice soft grass alongside the runway for belly landing, all of the guys in our club have landing gear on their jets, but you are welcome to bring your bungee launchers.

As of right now I am just trying to see if there is enough interest in putting this on, keep it coming............the more that chime in the better chance that it will happen.

That was the plan, will be visiting the office out there one day this week to see what is required.

Approx 10-11 years ago one of the local clubs put on a giant scale fly-in with vendors attending, was quite a show, had tons of spectators and flyers from all around, this is what I'd like to do for EDF's. I don't think the airport will charge anything for the use of the runway, will just to have to co-ordinate it with the local EAA chapter as they use it once a month for a breakfast fly-in.
