I just can’t resist posting an ad I came across on Barnstormers today. If you’re in California (or wanna be), love hot-shot Vintage, Antique, Classic or one-of-a-kind, factory and home-built aircraft, it’s time to consider basing yourself at this airport. If you have a dream of living in your hangar where there’s a hot-bed of activity, aviation history, interesting airplanes and people, consider this airport.
I’ve visited this California airport twice in my life (many years apart) and both times thought “This is my DREAM airport!” In reality I’m a Midwest gal and the chances of me moving to California are pretty slim. Does that keep me from dreaming about living in a hangar at one of the oldest, coolest, most women taildragger-friendly airports on the West coast ? NO!
The airport is KSZP, Santa Paula Airport and their 2665′ x 60′ Runway 04/22 continues to call my name. Based there are many lady taildragger pilots; Judy Phelps (co-owner of CP Aviation), Rowena Mason (airport manager), Lisa Keinholz, Jessica Bauman, Lucy Galgano, Kat Barilova, Kati Ganzer, Dianna Leason, Michelle Carter, balloon pilot Peggy Watson Meinke and many others.
So here’s the deal you can find on Barnstormers: HANGAR IN SANTA PAULA KSZP • $385,000 • RARE OPPORTUNITY • Hangar for sale in KSZP, in beautiful Ventura county one hour drive north of KLAX. The hangar is 48’x 30′, is all steel and fully insulated with a electrically operated bi-fold door. It has a top of the line pilot quarters of approx 600 sq feet.
