A Nice Place to Stop
Fresno Chandler is a fun stop! The terminal building and surrounding buildings have been restored, make sure and tour them inside and out while you're there. I was off work on a Monday and looking for a place to fly. The weather look good so why not have breakfast in Fresno?

I co-owned a Warrior based at this airport in 1980 and 1981 before they closed the tower and parallel runway so this was a step back in time for me. I assumed I was going to find a airport in disrepair. I was wrong. The City of Fresno has restored the old terminal to it's original luster. The old airline ticket counter was there, oak benches for the passangers even luggage without wheels. A real blast from the past.

Tailspin Tommy's Aerodrone Eatery is in the refurbished terminal overlooking the ramp and runway. The menu is simple but it has something for everyone. I had an omelet and found it very good. Regulars were frequenting the place so I assume other menu items are good as well. 

I did purchase fuel before I departed and luckily someone from the FBO came out to help as the self serve payment machine is unlike anything I've seen before. I'm sure I'd figured it out but it may have taken some time. All and all I enjoyed this stop and may return again.
