Fun Places to Fly in Arkansas

AQ Chicken House - Springdale, AR

The best fried chicken in the state! Choice of Pan Fried, Over-the-Coals my favorite, or BBQ. They also serve some of the best ribs, catfish, and chicken fried steak around. Never had anything on their menu that wasn't great. Portions should satisfy anyone's hunger. I always leave with a to-go box. AQ Chicken is located only about 2.5 miles from KASG Springdale Municipal, so if you can't get the shuttle, there's always a taxi. Go to the AQ Chicken House website and check out their menu. Whatever you choose, you won't be disappointed.

Arkansas Air Museum - Fayetteville, AR

The historic aircraft in the Arkansas Air Museum are unusual among museum exhibits because most of them still fly. There are few 'stuffed birds' in this collection. From world-famous racing planes of the 1920s and 1930s to an early airliner, the planes are maintained in flying condition. Located at Drake Field in Fayetteville, Ark

City of Mountain View - Mountain View, AR

This place has many attractions for an attractive getaway. Free live music with many groups pickin' bluegrass and folk music on the town square every evening, Blanchard Springs Caverns, a national forest, and so much more! Also - great ice cream sodas at the drug store. A trip to a real country town. Only thing missing is Floyd the barber!

Gaston's White River Resort - Lakeview, AR

If there's only one fly-away destination you make this year, Gaston's has got to be it. This is a great riverside resort. The main draw is trout fishing, but the setting, accomodations, and dining also make it a great place to visit. They have their own 3200' turf strip, and sell 100LL. You've just got to experience Gaston's! Plan a stop-over for lunch or dinner, or spend the night and fish. Check the website for more information and pictures. See you at Gaston's!

Petit Jean Park Airport - Morrilton, AR

An airport in an Arkansas state park on top of Petit Jean Mountian. Great camping at the airport between the south end of 5000' runway and lake. Plenty of parking. Lots to see and do in the state park. Contact Morrilton Aviation for more info.

PJ's White River Lodge @ Calico Rock - Norfork, AR

Les and Julie own a Bed and Breakfast nestled in the Ozarks on the White River. Calico Rock-Izard County Airport is approximately 10 miles away and Les was happy to pick up and us back off the next day after our stay. Wonderful food, great hospitality, and a beautiful area to fly into.

Smith Field Airport - Siloam Springs, AR

Smith Field is located about 15 minutes east of the Cherokee Hotel and Casino on Hwy 412. If you're into casinos, this is a good one. Great buffet, and a nice hotel across the street if you don't want to stay at the casino. It's a Super 8, and I have been there many times. The rooms are very nice and the service has always been fantastic. Travel about 25 miles east to Springdale, and you can find some of the best chicken around at the AQ Chicken House. It is famous for its chicken, but the ribs and steaks are great, too. I usually stop there whenever I'm in the area, but have been known to visit Springdale just for the AQ experience. I've never been disappointed in the food, and I've been going there for over 10 years. www.aqchickenhouse.net The airport itself is 5,000' long, paved, and in great condition. It is also a non-tower airport. There is usually a courtesy car available, but it's always best to call ahead.

Walnut Ridge Regional Parachute Inn - Walnut Ridge, AR

Great FBO service and amazing restaurant! The food is very good and the option to dine in a real B737 put this play over the top!
