gofastclint Posted February 11, 2009 Share Posted February 11, 2009 I recently watched a clip about an air park in the desert in the states. It was set up for retired couples to keep on flying into their twilight years. I don't know why we don't have more of these Air parks in Australia in the middle of no where. Land in the desert is cheap and if you built all the houses underground like some parts of lightning ridge, it wouldn't get too hot. All you would need is a decent runway so people could fly what ever they wanted. The only cost would be in maintaining the strip and the aircraft as if nothing grew there is nothing to mow. Hangars would be very simple as the dry air preserves alot of things, just a shade shelter would do. And with no rain, flying could be all year. A regular day could be a fly in the morning, followed by breakfast with the wife. Then off to the rec center for a game of cards and a swim with mates. Just a thought. Always loved visiting the desert, and I have seen some amazing underground homes. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
