Pay homage to the fathers of aviation. Coming into the field-you can't see it until you're right on it. Usually a crosswind, easy landing with deer all over (sometimes crossing the runway on landing), and plenty of tiedowns-bring your own rope if you're planning on stayin more than a few hours.
There's only one tiedown with rope there. Free admittance into the park, AOPA just put up a new facility there for pilots-entry code is VFR sqwak code. It's a great place-only way to get to the beach is by bringing your own bikes. Dare County (MQI) is a 3 minute flight from FFA, and they have a crew car where you can go into town and get some grub. If you like seafood-go to stripers grille in-town-ask the FBO where it is(right next to McDonalds). - Submitted by cdmaker9

10/28/2007 - Someone left a comment about the deer. That information is in the AFD as well. ALL pilot's need to be aware. I came with in feet of hitting one. Other then that I really enjoyed the monument.
