Geoff, to answer your runway question.... Not too good in my opinion. Have landed lots of times there. If you land down at the SW end, it is not bad for a while. Sort of frost heaves here and there but generally smooth. Up at the parking end it gets really choppy. I almost shut down and pulled the plane the last 100 yards last time I was there. It is used regularly by Dornier's out of Vegas and Page to drop river runners there. A tail dragger would be better. My Luscombe loved it. A nose dragger... just stop before it gets lumpy.

Default Landing Fee?

The A/FD says that there's a landing fee. Know how much it is?

Also, A/FD says that the first 1,000' rwy 03 is 'rough and badly rutted'.

Boy, does that sound inviting!

This one is in France, the Loire River side canal is crossing the Loire at Briare.
Ships are crossing the river via a bridge.

There is a small field just to the N. of this bridge that my grandfather built years ago. It's where I learned to fly. It's marked as Pvt, but my grandmother and a couple uncles still live and fly around there and have never turned away a visitor. Coordinate to land there and they'll gladly give you a ride over to Class VI River Runners to ride the the whitewater of the New or Gauley Rivers. New River Gorge airport is the name and further info is available if you want to PM me. Or go by 14 Oct and watch crazies parachute off the bridge into the Gorge below - in the '80 and early '90's planes and tents lined both sides of the runway all weekend. Oh, for the days of inexpensive avgas... Google New River Gorge Bridge Day 2014
