Default NC14 info

Looking at a trip to NC, usually go to KHKY, but noted a little field near Boone, NC14.
Any RVers have experience with this field?
"2700x40, transient welcome".
Thanks
Jim

Good question. I'd like to know too. Heading there over New Year's, may fly if the weather permits.

Boone is not bad but a bit tricky. Sometimes in a cloud and they charge you a ramp fee.

Or you could come see us at the most friendly GA airport I have ever been to, Foothills Regional.

Airnav says 'Private use. Permission required prior to landing'. Of course, it also says that pattern altitude is 4200' AGL...

Just looked it up on Foreflight.

Found this listed about the FBO in Foreflight.

"Landing fee is $15 for airplanes, $20 for helicopters, and $5 per night tie down fee."

I regularly go to HKY, great folks, reasonable if not cheap gas. Access to rental cars and adjacent to Hwy 321 which goes up to Blowing Rock, Boone area. I've never tried to go into Boone and for some reason didn't even notice it was there. HKY has two runways, approaches, tower and a nice museum on the field. Been to Foothills KMRN too but not lately, understand things are going well over there.

Boone is a good field and located very convenient to the town and many attractions and scenic areas. No gas available last time I was there earlier this year and the grass adjoining the runway is not usually maintained and can get long and thick which is not suitable for parking or taxiing. Sometimes it is not attended.
