The Field -
The Lincoln Sky Knight field is 20 acres and is surrounded by flat farmland and has lots of over-fly room with no obstructions. We have two runways one asphalt runway in 40’ x 400’ (excellent condition, just resurfaced the runway in 2010) and an irrigated grass runway 80’ x 450’ We also have an 80’ x 300’ foot pond for float flying or tail touching! Both paved and grass pit areas are available to pilots. (see photo) No noise restrictions and we are turbine friendly.
