Hello everyone
I am going to be making a little solo trip from STS on wednesday. I have a buddy who might be going to UC Davis for his post graduate work and I would love to scout out the area. Has anyone landed there or familiar with the airspace?
Cheers
TJ

Yes I flew some friends there to meet a friend at UCD summer 2003.

There's really not much activity in the area - I only had to be watchful over the movements at Travis AFB - watched a KC-10 on approach fly underneath us, which was cool.

You should have no problems, airspace-wise.

Thanks UA

I'll be flying over in a Comanche 250 so it should be a quick trip. From STS it looks like a straight shot right over Lake Berryessa. What airport do you fly out of?

My home airport is SQL.

When I take people up flying, my favorite place to go is HMB cause of the quick but still breathtakingly scenic flight, and the great cafe over there.

Yeah I would say we are pretty lucky to live in this area, whether driving Hwy 1 or flying around the coast or wine country, the views are always spectacular

TJ,

I lived in Davis for 10 years! I'm sure you'll find our little airport to be no problem to get in or out of.

Enjoy my town!

Regards, Dom

Thanks Dom,
I look foward to laying down a little grease at Davis. Anything I should pass on too my buddy comming to the University? He was choosing between that and Berkely. I think he made the right choice...Berk is a good college but a pretty crazy place and too big to have a personality I think. Davis seems a little smaller and personal I think.

Yeah, tell him to make sure to go for drinks and burgers at the "Grad" (right across the street from campus).

Also, Woodstock's is the best pizza place in D-town, and my favourite pub is the G Street Pub (with live music).

Of course Sacto is only about 15 miles away with a chance to see the Gov!

Hi,

I spent 10 weeks in Davis back in '96.
The airspace is far from being congested indeed!

I remember these beautiful sights over Lake Beryessa, the shoreline and San Francisco skyscrapers. At that time, you could fly 500ft over the top of the buildings. I assume you can't even think about it anymore.

My best US flights were two years later though, when I was in Long Beach. There I made a 3-day PA-28 trip over the gorgeous national parks (Zyon, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Lake Powell, awesome night landing at Las Vegas Int'l !) Do I miss these days!!

Have fun.

I'm from Davis originally! Cute little airport.

Head over to Sudwerk in East Davis for beers.

Hey everyone,
The trip went well, I spent about 20 mins on the ground walking around, couldn't go to the bars cause i had to fly back obviously but I will definately pass that info to my buddy. It took about 15 mins in the Comanche each way from STS.
