Hangars and Tiedowns
Tiedowns are free, on the ramp south of the office. If there are no chains attached, you will find them on the south side of our office. Overnight hangar space is difficult.
There is one available hangar on the airport which is Skylane/Cirrus SR-22 size (40' 4" door), which can be rented monthly--six month minimum--for $275/month. You provide insurance for your aircraft: it is not included in the rental. This hangar has an electric bi-fold door, and full concrete floor. Airplane only, no extra storage space. Contact us for more information on this hangar.
For aircraft maintenance, we recommend Butterfly Aviation in Goodland, Kansas, as the closest full-service shop. We can air your tires, provide an engine preheat, or let you plug into 110 volts AC for your engine heater.
The Cheyenne County airport is easy walking distance to several restaurants, and we have people who fly in just for that reason.
There is an excellent motorcycle museum downtown, on main street--it is well worth your time.
