That would be awesome! I have been looking at land or potential locations just across the Travis County line out on Hwy 290 (heading towards Dripping Springs area). I definitely think Austin needs an airport or airpark in the SW sector of town. Spicewood is too far out west and Lakeway is fine if you can get a spot (but it will cost you)....we need reasonable priced options SW of town imo.

I would be willing to commit to anything SW of town as long as it is outside of Travis County (and Travis County taxation).

Hi David, this is Jason Sills (son of Caroline Sills, Sills Realty). We spoke about the potential for an Air Park W or SW of Austin early this year. I haven't had much time to devote to the prospect beside glancing at the logistics of a few tracts big enough along the far end of 1826.

Have you had any progress or further interest on your end?

I hope all is well you and your family.

Cheers,

Jason

Default Keep talking...

...'cause I'm listening. I'm retiring from the USAF in June, and am targeting the San Antonio/Austin/DFW I-35 corridor. I have a lot of reasons to make Austin home. You have my attention...

That is great that there is some interest on this board and in the rest of the GA community. It seems that the prospect of an air park in the Hill Country gets tricky because of... well the hills. I have looked into some available tracts that do seem like they could support a midsize field with a small residential area.

While I am a real estate agent in the area, I have to admit the finer points obtaining approval for and installing an air field are not my areas of expertise. If David, as the OP, doesn't have any objections, I may reach out to some that have gone through the air park development process in the past to discuss some of the major trip points. If I obtain fruitful information, I'll feed it back to David and the group.

Cheers,

Jason

If the good people of Austin can get an F1 circuit with an unprecedented 10 year Moto GP contract I am thinking a new airport should be manageable.

The idea of an air park out west still calls to me. With land getting more expensive, particularly in the last few years, the prospect will only become more difficult. If anyone has come across resources that may be useful in finding suitable sites, I would appreciate the heading!

Fentress Airpark, approximately 8nm southeast of KHYI. (San Marcos) XS90 in Airnav.

3000'+ hard surface, lit runway. Airnav says it's gravel but that's incorrect. Water and power are already in. Lots for sale all line the East side of the runway and are about 1 acre each.

Myself and another friend with an RV-8 own 2 lots each and there are 14 total in the development. Finalizing my hangar design and will start construction very soon.

PM me if you want more info.

Rob

Former 88R hangar owner
