Anyone living at Erie Airpark (KIEK) available to chat? Looking at this as a place to move.

I did a search for KIEK and didn't come up with anything. However, I live close to Erie, IL which has Erie Airpark - 3H5. If that is the one you are looking for send me a PM.

Otherwise, I did see that there is a Erie Municipal Airport in Erie, CO that has an airport code of KEIK. Is that the one you are looking for?

I live near it, in Boulder, but rarely fly out of it. Nothing wrong with the place as far as I know.... as for nearby cities, it's close to Lafayette, Erie, and down the road a bit, Louisville and Boulder. Denver is further.

When I've used KEIK, it's been fine. I would have liked their now-closed crosswind runway to be useable, but that's a minor gripe.

Boulder has plenty of local shopping and an excellent hardware store, McGuckin's. I rarely go to Denver.

I hangared my RV-14A at KEIK for a year or so and enjoyed the airport very much. Friendly manager (Jason), reasonable fuel price at the self-serve, and good A&Ps at Vector Air if you need them.

It's close to larger towered airport KBJC, so you do need to be careful of straying into their Delta. The only runway at KEIK is north/south and strong crosswinds once chased me over to KBJC.

Glad to talk about it if you want to send a PM.
