Default How many does your airport have?

My airport, KLHM (Lincoln, Ca.) now has 21 flying RVís, everything from RV 4ís to RV14ís. Anybody got more at their airport?

To my knowledge, the Falcon Field near ATL has the most. I was told 125. @vern can confirm.

Default 10

I think we have 10 at 3M5 (7, 2 7As', 2 6s', 6A, 2 9As', and 2 8s'). Used to be a 12 but he moved.

Default Wow

I think we're at maybe 1 actually at the airport. Several at various stages of completion and still in a garage. Hangars are nonexistent, so some have built their own runway as it's easier than dealing with the airport authority. There's a couple in the area on private runways, but the actual airport, it's difficult.

Our airport has 10 RV's flying and a couple more being built. We figure the 10 represents 30% of the privately owned and operating aircraft on the field.

Yes it does!

Houston Hooks airport used to have a bunch, but methinks the numbers have dwindled a bit; off the top of my head I can count 8Ö Iím sure there are a few more, but I never see Ďem. Maybe there are more hiding out in various T hangars?

Currently, 23 of the 81 homebuilts on our field at Serpentine in Western Australia are RV's.
