Your aviation stories are welcome here!

Cheers

Two homes coming on the market at Dogwood (VA42). If you have work to do in the area, this is about the only airpark that you can commute to northern VA or DC. I rode the commuter train that is 5 min from the airpark.

Great blog! I really liked the HOA meeting video. You guys are really organized. Do you have an heated/airconditioned hanger? If I'm not flying, I'll be in the hanger working on the next project, so wonder how you deal with the summer and winters temps/humidy?

Does your airpark have a website? I wasn't able to google one down. Thanks!

Ron- Nice video of your RV at the airpark! How many homes are in the airpark? Does your airport have a website? Is your hanger heated for winter shop time? Do you need an air conditioned workshop? I'm usually in the hanger when not flying, reason I ask. Do families get together for planned events? Thank you for the info, I really appreciate it!

There are 30 homes in the airpark. Two are for sale now and there are 3 or 4 lots for sale. We will be fully sold out with 36 homes. Sorry, no web site. I have a heat pump in my hangar. Most do without heat or air conditioning, your choice. We have 3 or 4 community picnics throughout the year and a community gathering most every Wednesday evening where we meet at different local restaurants. It's a very close knit community with a great HOA and lots of really nice people.

No website. There is a AIRNAV listing: https://www.airnav.com/airport/VA42

PM me if you have any questions.

I have a 4 ton heat pump in my hangar....a must if your going to be in the hangar whether it's hot or cold outside.


Glad you liked the meeting...that was my last meeting as HOA president.
