Flying into Hesperia !

The first time I went there I turned downwind on the GPS BEFORE I found the airport. If you're not aligned with the runway it's really hard to see. The Hesperia airport has homes with hangers tight against the taxiway.

The self service island is new and the fuel is cheep. Make sure to chalk the wheels because everything is on a slope. The restaurant is called Mile High in reference to the load on the plates. I've had breakfast there several times and have never been disappointed. There is a flight school on the field called Hesperia Flight Academy, tell Kelly I sent you.

I did shoot this video of flying too and landing at the Hesperia airport!

Ok, my friend Kelly owns the flight school. Every time I arrive for breakfast he has a student scheduled and I have to pay for my own breakfast. Almost caught him this time! I think he hears me on the radio then runs out and starts a plane.
The Mile High Cafe (Pink Building). No longer a pilots secret the locals come out in force too. Good food and lots of it!
