Gary Carter, NY, USA

Jyly 20, 2007 | N2618'34" W08053'42" N4259'35" W07554'42" | Elevation 1301' MSL

Location: East of Syracuse, NY. Check out full details here on AirNav.

Basic Description: Large grassy field with mowed runway.

Weather: Warm in the summer, snowy and cold in the winter.

Comments: Comes with a super-friendly, paramotor pilot and aviation loving owner.

I have not yet flown here but, after spending several fly-ins with Gary, can attest to his vigorous love of all things airworthy. I have flown just outs.

Landowner: Gary Carter, paramotor and fixed wing ultralight pilot.

Permission: Ask Gary, he's likely to say yes.

Sensitive Areas: Houses. It's easy to avoid the neighbors.

Airspace: You launch in G airspace and climb into E airspace 700 feet above. Heavy airplane traffic can be expected above 1500 feet MSL going into Syracuse Hancock International Airport (SYR) which is only about 12 statute miles northwest.

Class C for SYR starts just over a mile northwest at 2700 feet MSL.

Gary's place was featured in a 2007 Powered Sport Flying Magazine article. 

It's wide open in spite of all the colors. Gary's place is outside the surface area of Syracuse airport by about 7 miles. The little flag at Cazenovia lake means that pilots use the lake as a reporting site when calling Syracuse Approach Control.
