Frazier Lake Airpark
1C9 - Frazier Lake Airpark is a
privately-owned old-fashioned airpark
hosting numerous classic antiques.
With a 2500 foot long turf runway, the Cubs,
Stinsons, Cessna 180s and Stearmans are all right at home.
1C9 is positioned in a small valley that runs from Hollister to San Jose and is between the cities of Gilroy and Hollister.
Frazier Lake has some great flying adventures close by.
You can take a trip through the golden brown hills towards the central valley or
head southwest and find the beach. Many non-towered airports are close by and if you like to talk to a controller,
Monterey Class Charlie Airspace is just 20 NM South.
There is no fuel at Frazier Lake, but Hollister (KCVH) is only 4nm southeast and South County (E16) is 10nm NW.
Both are lighted and have self-serve 100LL open all hours.
The weather is typically awesome sunshine with moderate temps and a predictable afternoon wind of 17 knots right down 23.
Some mornings the sun gives way to a short lived overcast.
The turf can get soft just after a rain in the winter months.
Sometimes the runway is closed due to wet conditions, so check the notams before coming over.
There are no training flights or touch-n-go landings for 3 days after a rain. Please follow this rule.
Hard landings on the soft turf have caused many man hours and member $ to take care of.
