Airport Monthly has awarded Archerfield Airfield with another award, this time the “Airport of the Month” award for January 2018.
“There are soooooooo many airports,” said a AM staffer, “so getting to the top means your airport has something special.”
Asked whether the airfield was getting special treatment because of the Archerfield Free Post being based there the staffer denied it.
“No, it’s because it has two great fields, a shooting range, kangaroos, a Waterbank News office, a shopping center, a dock, and…” the staffer took a deep breath, “an aviation school, a dock, ZSK, and a possible royal connection to the Duke of Archer.”
Jackson Valley Regional Airport, near Jackson Valley City, altitude 50 may be just a regional field in between some class A airports, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming a popular place for pilots to gather.
“It really has charm,” said one pilot unpacking a case of Pernod from her YKS-7 at the field (link to pictured product). “I know one guy, Manu, who brought his Camper (link to product in pic) here twenty years ago and never left!”
Jackson Valley Regional Airport can be found at (link to map), and pilots should be aware that the airfield can only accommodate small to medium craft on Runway 30/12, Alt. 50.
Increases in river, road, and air traffic in the East and West River areas has put pressure on area leaders to rethink how their ports and airports are arranged.
“We’re looking at tomorrow, not today,” said a councilwoman in West River, “and the reality is yesterday. We should be more like the East River and ERIA – they’ve got a better handle on it.”
Travelers to Zugspitze (link)have been confused after real estate agents began to try to sell the airport, even as they were disembarcking.
“They said it was for sale, but it wasn’t,” said one traveler. “I thought I might have an airport for cheap.”
Aeronauticos from all over the world are expected to attend the release party of the newest ZSK aircraft in the Greater Tulagi area. The highly anticipated aircraft has gone through rigorous testing to meet the high standard of ZoraSlade Koru, ZSK’s jefe.
“I don’t know if the rumors about an engineer being fired for untrimmed nose hair are true,” said one worker at Archerfield, “but we take Quality Control very – VERY – seriously. Pilots know we aim to please.”

Archerfield Aerodrome has resumed operations with a number of improvements, and continues to construct new facilities.
As the above image indicates, the runways have been paved to allow for newer aircraft (and an upcoming ZSK jet), and taxiways have been added to help with the inevitable increase in traffic. Limited parking is now available too.
TTI and the flight school have been moved to the north side of the airport. Pilots should note that Runway 07-25 no longer exists and has been replaced with Runway 09-27.
Sunny Fields, home to TBM and several other companies (link), was awarded the “Best Desert Award” by the WBA.
“It’s been a long standing destination with real appeal,” said WBA President Sketch Sun. “I fly and shop there whenever I can. It’s packed full of surprises too, so you should snoop a little. The lime rickey at the diner is perfect for the heat.”
Link to the airfield and destination is above.
