Question Army-Navy Game - Airport recommendations??

I am looking for recommendations in the Philly area for the Army-Navy 2012 game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA. What is the best/friendliest GA airport in the area.

Looking to tie-down December 7-9th. (Hangar would be awesome, but not required)

Anyone else going?

Dan

Default What about east side?

Thanks Jeff, I will check out Brandywine.

Anyone familiar with the east side?

Maybe:
South Jersey Regional (KVAY)
Flying W (N14)
Camden County (N19)
Cross Keys (17N)

Again any info on Tie-downs/Hangar, Rental car/ Taxi are appreciated.

Dan

19N doesn't seem to be GA friendly. They may as well be private.

17N is a great little airport, I am based there, but I don't think you find hangar space.

N14 is a great little airport too! Not sure about hangar space.

VAY would be my first choice. The have a community hangar and I'm GUESSING you could get in. You should call.

Default Thanks

Tony, thanks for the gouge. I will give them a call, just thought I would see if there were any "insider" information. I don't normally carry tie-downs in the plane (ropes yes), but since flying more on the East coast I am finding it a necessity to carry them.

If you have some local scenic must see fly over recommendations I will take those too. Either post here or send offline.

Thanks,

Dan
