Gross number is not a good way to scale this.

A percentage of the total aircraft would seem more meaningful. Otherwise larger airports have a built in advantage.

At our airpark there are 32 hangar homes, and at least 8 RVs

I think that’s about right Vern. I quit counting once it got over 50. I can only count those fingers and toes so many times! BTW, Atlanta Regional- Falcon Field is not a very large airport, but we do have a lot of activity: multiple flight schools, corporate jets, the CAF, occasional military traffic. 4+ ship formations are a nearly daily occurrence. It makes for an interesting pattern!

I am the sole RV on the field. There used to be a -6 here but he moved a few years back.

There are only 4-6 other RV's in the entire Big Horn Basin. One could say I live in an RV desert. haha

Well okay then, Mike - at 12VA the sole aircraft is an RV-10. So we're at 100% of the fleet.

What do I win?

You got us beat. 30 hangar homes but only 3 flying RVs and 3 additional RV aircraft under construction. There are more road bound RV here than there are RV aircraft.
