Anyone live or familiar with Kansas?

My favorite airport (for flight sim of course)

Catalina Island

Fees: Landing - $20.00
Op Hours: 8am-7pm (summer)
8am-4:30pm(winter)
Approaches: The approach end of Catalina's runway 22 begins at the edge of a 1500' cliff. This gives the airport some characteristics similar to landing on an aircraft carrier that is 1,602' in the air.

Be aware:

1) There are no familiar visual cues for altitude reference. You MUST rely on your Altimeter.
2) There is usually a strong downdraft at the approach end of the runway caused by the prevailing winds falling over the 1500' cliff. Be prepared for this downdraft and possible loss of altitude during your short final.
3) The uphill slope of runway 22 can cause approach and flare problems for inexperienced pilots.
4) Most flying clubs require that on your first landing at Catalina, you are accompanied by a CFI or other pilot experienced with Catalina's features.
Departures: Approval required through UNICOM prior to takeoff (or ldg).
Pilots cannot see arcft on opposite end of rwy due to slope of rwy.
No intersection takeoffs.

:) J/k I love canada... its fun to make fun of you guys though just because of the fact that there isn't much to make fun of.

Its hard to make fun of a country ranked best quality of life like a million times in a row

You want KCI, its about an 1.5 hours from Lawrence. Forbes Field is just ramping up for commercial flights, I think they only run flights out to Vegas and a SE city (Atlanta or Miami?). I actually live about 30 seconds away from Forbes and do alot of contract work at some of the businesses on the base..

I called it Cedar "International" Airport as a joke.
