Watch for:

  • Sea Planes taking off from Fisherman Bay and/or transitioning at low altitudes west of airport.
  • Down drafts on approach especially from west winds landing 16.
  • Tall trees on approaches.
Reference:

There are no services at the airport:

  • We have a small waiting room in the terminal, free WiFi and a phone for local or 911 calls.  There is a port-a-potty.
  • Restaurants, lodging, shops, art galleries are approximately 3 miles from the airport in Lopez Village..
  • Golfing:  There is a very good 9 hole golf course with seperated tee boxes for the second 9 holes. It is immediately adjacent to the airport. No tee times are needed and rarely any waiting.  If your ball goes over the fence onto the airport, consider it a donation to the school’s golf program. Their website is lopezislandgolf.com.
