Heckler Field

Volume:38 (download)
Airport:Heckler Field
Country:USA
Description: One could well argue that you don't have to fly into Heckler Field (CT09) from this direction - there's always the other end. I agree entirely, but the point I'm trying to make here is this: one stupidly misplaced solitary tree increases your entry angle of attack substantially and reduces the length of the runway to land on considerably. It's a lesson well learnt particularly on a short runway. Expect a 1360ft grass runway on an elevation of 793ft.
