  • About Your Plane: Beechcraft Bonanza A36
  • Flying Tips: Ingalls Field Airport is one of the more challenging airports to land and takeoff from. Known as “the aircraft carrier” for its position atop a ridgeline, it is frequently subjected to high, gusty winds which are also frequently a direct crosswind over the top of the ridgeline. Use caution and choose a calm day to go in/out of there.
