Well, really more like 1600 feet. And it's still plenty. Consider a short soft field landing.... Steep slow approach, ending with a deep flare. The video looks like you are flying it on.

I Thought he said his runway was 2200 feet. Itís actually 2100 feet so he would have 1600 feet available with the thresholds displaced 500 feet.

AOA can be added for $10 worth of parts. Audio can be disabled if desired.
Just display the chevrons on the EFIS.

Update... I said I would post a video of RV-12 using full flaps and forward slip as a technique for short field landing. Wind was 10 knots straight down the runway so I held a little extra speed on short final. Slip starts after pine trees are cleared. The slip with full right rudder is held well into the landing flare and I still landed longer than I would have liked. Any excess speed adds significantly to float in ground effect. This landing was after 3-hour cross country flight and I was tired and wanted to get on the ground.

I'll make another video with fully stabilized approach and better control of airspeed.

Looks like the lawn chairs are set up to view the runway.
Maybe the new neighbour likes watching planes and if he is talked to maybe he would like a flight and some info on homebuilding and basing it at your field.

Actually, I think that are having a house-warming today. Relatives and friends probably silently wondering why he built house at end of a runway...

Probably not. They're probably telling him that crazy nut job with the airplane is a menace and he should get his lawyer to shut down the runway. It just seems to be the way most people think.

When my wife and I look at houses, we look at what's around them. Noisy streets, noisy businesses, race tracks, garbage dumps, neighbors with unfortunate choices of "yard art", etc. I can't figure out why, but a lot of people seem to just buy something and then try to force the rest of the world to rearrange itself to suit them.

Angry Another option

Time to invite all Ultralights, like we see at OSH, to come and fly early and late flights each day, when the WX is good, at this Ohio field so that the neighbors get a good appreciation for Aviation mixed with a Touch of Noise! Another Death of an American Airfield called Progress!

This reminds me of a situation years ago in Florida. KSUA, Whitman field has several runways and was a training field back in WWII. Jupiter borders the field and is a shay shay, upscale neighborhood. I think Burt Reynolds lived there.

Well, a couple bought a small mansion which happened to be at the end of one of Whitmanís runways. Wasnít long after moving in he realized his mistake and promptly sued to have the runway shut. The case dragged on and, as I recall, the judge found in favor of the airport. He, the judge, basically admonished the new home owner and the realtor for not doing their homeowner prior to the purchase. The realtor should have disclosed the issue to the purchaser. The judge stated the airport was there well before the community was developed and once developed those building were well aware of the location of the airport and its runways.

Not sure that reasoning would hold up in these times...

Solid reasoning from the Keystone State - that's why they call it that..
